United Club FlySM offers a convenient option for busy travelers who want a high-quality coffee, beverage or snack en route to their flight
New concept offers an easy solution for the more than 54% of airline club and lounge visitors who like to take food or drinks to-go¹
New club coincides with the opening of the Concourse B expansion at Denver International Airport and offers a premium takeaway option to the more than 2/3 of United customers who connect in Denver to other cities
DENVER, Nov. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- United today announced it opened a new club concept at Denver International Airport designed for busy travelers who want to grab a snack, beverage or barista-made coffee on the way to their flight. United Club FlySM is a first-of-its-kind concept for a U.S. airline and gives a guilt-free option to the more than half of airport club and lounge visitors who like to take snacks to go1. This new format comes on the heels of United opening new club locations in Newark Liberty International Airport and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, and reflects the airline's larger ambitions to create a bespoke club experience that meets the unique needs of travelers across its network.
"United Club Fly is all about elevated convenience. We know there are times when our members are in a hurry and use our clubs to sneak a quick drink or snack, so we've created this new format to make it easy for them to do that without sacrificing an upscale club environment," said Marketing & Loyalty VP and MileagePlus President, Luc Bondar. "In Denver, more than two-thirds of our customers are connecting to other places, making it the ideal city to introduce this concept."
The new club occupies a smaller footprint than a traditional United Club, and it's conveniently located on a highly visible corner of the new Concourse B-East expansion. The market-style club features a variety of non-alcoholic drinks, premium snacks and even a place to order a favorite barista-made coffee beverage.
Here's how United Club Fly works:
As part of United's ongoing commitment to renovate and introduce new United Club locations throughout its network and provide a more modern United brand experience, United Club Fly in Denver presents a contemporary design that celebrates the region – a proud United hub for more than 30 years. The ski lodge-inspired space includes art and furnishings sourced from local artists and companies. The air carrier plans to collaborate with additional local businesses in the future to feature unique, seasonal items throughout the year.
