United Opens New Clubs as Part of $100 Million Investment to Transform Lounge Experience
United Airlines unveiled new United Club lounges in both Atlanta and San Francisco, offering customers modern designs with stunning panoramic views of the airfield, comfortable seating to work or relax, fresh and healthy food choices, complimentary beverages and plentiful power outlets throughout.
“Our customers deserve the very best travel experience, and our new clubs are not only beautiful spaces, they are also very functional and will provide the perfect settings for customers to relax, refresh and recharge before their flights,” said Jimmy Samartzis, United’s vice president of food services and United Clubs. “We are investing over$100 million in our United Club locations over the next few years to offer customers the added comfort and convenience they expect during their trips.”
The nearly 5,000-square-foot Atlanta United Club opens today. The club features stunning panoramic views of the airport as well as seating for more than 100 people, giving travelers a comfortable and convenient airport getaway where they can unwind during their journeys. The modern design also features vintage aviation artwork throughout the club, and visiting customers may dine on complimentary fresh-food choices, including yogurt and fresh fruit; muffins in rotating flavors of cinnamon and blueberry; sliced red bell peppers with hummus; rotating seasonal soups; and spicy Bloody Mary trail mix.
The Atlanta club is located between gates 11 and 12 at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport’s Concourse T, on the mezzanine level.
At just over 6,000 square feet, the newest United Club at San Francisco International Airport will first welcome travelers on November 18. The club will offer a bird’s-eye view of airport operations and a gallery of photos of United’s history. Comfortable seating can accommodate more than 130 people who will be able to enjoy a complimentary menu with seasonal choices, such as fresh zucchini, yellow squash and cherry tomatoes; hearty butternut squash soup; dressed spinach salad; and a variety of fresh meats and cheeses.
The club is located in the newly renovated Terminal 3 East Concourse, scheduled to open the same day, and will operate in addition to United Club locations in Terminal 3’s Concourse F and in the airport’s International Terminal G.
Like remodeled United Club locations in Atlanta, Chicago, San Diego, Seattle, Boston and London, the new San Francisco location will offer additional work stations and abundant power outlets for customers to work with greater ease and comfort. Members may also enjoy complimentary beverages and Wi-Fi, as well as premium wines and spirits.
