Mobile bag tracking

  • Mobile bag tracking allows you to easily see the status of your checked bags within the United app.

  • You need to have a current flight reservation with checked bags, as well as the United app on Android (version 4.3 or higher) or iOS (version 10 or higher).

  • Select "Track my bags" from the menu in the top left corner or go to "View reservations."

  • If you've entered your reservation information and still don't see your bags, you can enter your bag tag number or scan the barcode on your baggage receipt using your device's camera.

  • You will know when the bag has been loaded onto a flight and when it has been unloaded, as well as when it is at baggage claim.

  • In most cases, yes. However, there are some times when detailed information will not be available quite yet.

  • While we scan bags at most airports and points in the journey, your bag may not be scanned absolutely everywhere.

  • No, bag tracking is currently only available on the United app.

  • In the unlikely event that your baggage is misplaced, we will make every effort to quickly reroute your bag to you. In some instances, your baggage may actually arrive at your destination before you — this will be indicated in the app. Please see a United representative at a baggage service office located near the claim area to claim your bag or get more information.

  • The baggage tracking application will recognize if your itinerary contains travel on another airline, but we are currently not able to obtain bag data for any other airlines. The bag status will show as "Bag data not available."
