With Memorial Day around the corner, the year’s brightest season is nearly here. To get those vacation vibes going, make sure you’re prepared for your next flight—especially if you haven’t traveled in a while. Here are a few tips.
Get this summer’s hottest accessory:
Download the United app for a touch-less airport experience. You can check in for your flight, change your seat, and more.
Ensure you’re travel-ready:
If you have a trip booked, just enter your information at united.com/travelready or on the United app. The Travel-Ready Center allows you to see up-to-date travel restrictions and COVID-19 testing requirements, as well as to schedule a COVID-19 test and upload your test results, if necessary.
Unload your baggage:
Rather than waiting until the last minute to sort out your checked bags, we recommend paying for them ahead of time online or during online check-in. Then you won’t have to fuss with a credit card at the airport.
Find assistance at a distance:
When you get to the airport and need some support at the gate, you no longer have to leave your chair. Instead, scan one of the nearby QR codes, which allow you to call, text, or video chat with a live agent about anything you’d typically ask a gate agent.
Everyone ages 2 and up still needs to wear a face mask throughout the airport and on their flights, so make sure you’ve packed a mask (or two) alongside your sunscreen.
