United Airlines grows Mercedes-Benz tarmac service in San Francisco

14 March 2014

United Continental Holdings, Inc., (NYSE: UAL) company United Airlines said it has expanded its Mercedes-Benz tarmac transportation service to San Francisco International Airport, offering members of the airline´s invitation-only Global Services program greater comfort and convenience throughout their travel experience.

United will offer the tarmac service this spring using Mercedes-Benz GL350 BlueTEC SUVs with environmentally friendly clean diesel technology to chauffeur some Global Services members and United Global First customers to their connections in San Francisco. United representatives will meet customers at the aircraft, escort them to the waiting Mercedes-Benz vehicle and drive them across the tarmac to their connecting flight. The expediting service gives priority to customers with close connections.

United Airlines and United Express operate an average of more than 5,300 flights a day to more than 360 airports across six continents. For more information, visit
