United Plans New and Refreshed United Clubs at Seven Airports in 2015
The plans, a copy of which was obtained by Frequent Business Traveler, were outlined in a memo sent to the airline’s employees this week.
The program will affect seven airport locations and will result in United Club lounges with “a new, modern style with upgraded amenities,” according to the airline.
At Reagan Washington National, a complete renovation is planned for the spring. Three of the four lounges at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport will see the start of the design and planning stages, also in the spring. Hong Kong International Airport’s United Club will also get a “refresh” in the spring, while Narita International Airport’s club, in Tokyo, Japan, will get both a refresh and new furniture in the spring.
The Chicago-based carrier said it plans to “update” its current two lounges at Los Angeles International Airport as it prepares to open a much larger United Club in 2017. In San Francisco, which currently has three United Clubs, the airline will open a new lounge in late 2015.
At Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia, where the airline had closed its sole United Club after moving operations to Concourse T earlier this year, the airline “is in the process of evaluating potential new opportunities” to open a new United Club, according to a United spokesman.
