United Airlines recently announced an innovative boarding system that promises to decrease boarding times and improve the travel experience of its customers. The new boarding order, which is already being tested on some flights, will be gradually rolled out across the United States beginning in August. Passengers will now board in groups of five instead of the current groups of ten. The boarding process will start with first class passengers followed by those in the pre-boarded category. After that, the boarding groups are assigned based on their ticket type. Those flying business class will board before those in economy class and those who purchased a basic economy ticket will board after those with economy tickets. Additionally, United Airlines plans to introduce an “express” lane for members of its loyalty program, MileagePlus, as well as United Credit Card holders. This lane will be located on the left side of the jetway and will allow these customers to bypass the regular boarding line. The new boarding system is part of United Airlines’ effort to make the boarding process more efficient and streamlined. The airline has conducted extensive research and data analysis to develop the new system. The new method is expected to reduce boarding times up to 10% on average. The airline also hopes that the new boarding process will lessen the boarding area congestion by reducing the boarding time. United Airlines is the latest to join the list of airlines offering a more efficient boarding process. American Airlines and Delta Air Lines have also introduced similar systems in recent years. As the world continues to grapple with the pandemic, the new boarding system is intended to increase safety by reducing close-contact interactions, while also improving the boarding experience. United Airlines also plans to enforce social distancing measures in the boarding area to prevent the spread of the virus. In conclusion, United Airlines’ new boarding system is a welcome addition to improve the travel experience of its customers. The airline has gone the extra mile to ensure that the boarding process is efficient and safe for its passengers.
