Enhancing operations in Chicago

In February, United will begin operating its newly enhanced bank structure at O’Hare International Airport to shorten connection times and provide better access to more destinations for customers connecting through the carrier’s Chicago hub. This operations enhancement, already in place at United’s Houston hub, will enable United to greatly improve connectivity throughout its industry-leading global route network.
