United Airlines is pleased to provide transportation to customers who may require additional assistance. We maintain a strong relationship with numerous disability organizations throughout the country. In addition, we have formed a Customers with Disabilities Advisory Board made up of individuals representing several disabilities. The Board meets regularly to discuss issues pertaining to air travel and accessibility and offers suggestions and advice to improve our product. The mission of the group is to ensure that United Airlines will continue to offer clean, safe, reliable and accessible transportation for all customers, including those with disabilities.
