Young Travelers Club

Young Travelers Clubs provide an enclosed, secured area at select airports where unaccompanied children can wait for a flight or be picked up by the party meeting them. The clubs are supervised by United employees and provide entertainment and snacks for kids who have free time to fill during travel. Television, books, games and toys are available.

United has Young Travelers Clubs that are open daily at Cleveland, Denver, Houston Intercontinental, New York/Newark and Washington Dulles.
