United Continental Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: UAL) company United Airlines said it has expanded its Mercedes-Benz tarmac transportation service to Los Angeles International Airport, offering the airline´s top frequent flyers increased comfort and a new way to save time when connecting through the airline´s hub.
United will chauffeur selected Global Services members and United Global First customers to their connections in Los Angeles using its fleet of Mercedes-Benz GL350 BlueTEC SUVs, powered by environmentally friendly, clean diesel technology. 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 also offers the transfer service at its hubs in Chicago, Houston, Newark and San Francisco, and the airline plans to further expand it this year.
