The United Business experience


Enjoy the convenience of Premier Access® priority travel services

We want your entire experience to be seamless, starting the moment you arrive at the airport. When you travel in United Business, our Premier Access priority travel services will take the hassle out of airport processing with exclusive check-in counters and security lanes and priority baggage handling and boarding, to give you plenty of time to get settled before takeoff.

Unwind before your flight

All United Business travelers on transcontinental premium service can visit our United Club℠ locations to relax and enjoy complimentary food and beverages or to finish up any last-minute work before boarding. We offer premium wine and spirits and complimentary Wi-Fi at all locations.


Stretch out in a premium flat-bed seat

 United Business seats are welcoming and spacious, bringing a high level of comfort to all transcontinental routes. You'll now enjoy special bedding from iconic New York brand Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as noise-reducing headphones to help you feel right at home.

When you need to be productive, you'll find plenty of room for your laptop, tablet and documents, plus in-seat power to help your devices stay fully charged. And when you're ready to get some rest, you can easily adjust your seat to your preferred reclining position or into a fully flat bed with more than 6 feet of sleeping space. United Business seats are also equipped with seatback on-demand entertainment systems, featuring a personal 15" video monitor.

Stay refreshed with a premium amenity kit

We're excited to offer amenity kits that are designed exclusively by Away and include Sunday Riley’s hydrating In-Flight Remedy. The amenity kit is yours to keep upon arrival at your destination.
