United Continental Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: UAL) company United Airlines said it is making it easier for customers to power up their phones, tablets, laptops and gaming devices while traveling.
This month the airline began installing nearly 500 electronics charging stations in customer seating areas at many of the airports United serves.
First on United´s list is Chicago O´Hare International Airport, which will be outfitted with more than 110 of the new charging stations in Concourses B and C by the end of March. The airline will begin installing the charging stations at its Houston, Los Angeles, Newark and Washington Dulles hubs in the coming weeks as well, along with New York LaGuardia and Louis Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans.
Each of United´s new charging stations offers access to six, 110-volt power outlets and two USB ports, enabling customers to charge a range of electronic devices simultaneously. The new stations also feature a sleek design with a large “power outlet” icon and prominent United branding, helping customers quickly locate the units in gate areas.
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 united.com.
