United is committed to making united.com accessible to all people, regardless of their abilities. We've adopted the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 as the technical standard for our website, with a focus on meeting compliance level AA.

Our efforts

Over the past few years, we've:

  • Improved site navigation and structure for those using assistive devices
  • Enhanced our use of color contrast and fonts
  • Provided equivalent text for appropriate images and visual elements
  • Associated forms with labels and tabular data with headers
  • Added the necessary captions and transcripts for multimedia
  • Removed or remediated nearly all PDFs on united.com

We'll continue to work on these accessibility principles, as well as develop further accessibility guidelines, as we improve our website and add additional functionality.
