Benefits and travel privileges

Improving our employees' lives for today and their future

Tropical Destination


Employees and their families enjoy exciting travel privileges, including discounted rates on airline tickets and unlimited standby travel to anywhere United flies. Whether it's backpacking through Europe or a long weekend in Guam, who wouldn't enjoy the perks of travel?

Future financials

Employees can enroll in our 401k plan, which includes a company match, to provide future financial security.


Our employees are critical to our success, so we reward them financially through profit sharing, customer satisfaction bonuses and on-time arrival bonuses when the airline performs well.

Paid time off

Our employees work hard, so we reward them with paid vacation, as well as sick time when they need it.

Professional development

United continuously encourages employees to develop their skills and interests to advance their professional growth.


We offer a variety of medical plans and options, including vision, dental, long-term disability and life insurance, to help employees keep themselves and their families happy and healthy.

Wellness program

Our wellness program offers lifestyle coaching, condition management services and a personal health record to help our employees lead healthier and more fulfilling lives, both at work and at home.

Volunteer opportunities

We encourage employees to help make a difference in the communities we serve by providing volunteer impact grants for their favorite charities, supporting charitable fundraising opportunities, and promoting volunteer participation with local food banks, parades, athletic events and more.

Business Resource Groups

We value the cultural diversity of our workforce and invite employees to participate in groups focused on multicultural backgrounds, veterans, women in the workforce and the LGTBA community, as a way to celebrate diversity and promote inclusion.

Social clubs

There are social, athletic and activity clubs around the world for employees to join, or they're welcome to start their own. Our social clubs foster camaraderie based on common interests.
