SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 16, 2012

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --United Airlines announced the
launch of the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) PreCheck program
at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) Terminal 3. TSA PreCheck also
opened for United customers this week at Baltimore-Washington International
(BWI) and San Juan - Luis Munoz Marin International in Puerto Rico (SJU). TSA
PreCheck is a new, risk-based pre-screening initiative that allows customers
to volunteer information about themselves that may make them eligible to
expedite their screening experience. Eligible United customers are allowed to
leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belts and to keep their laptops and
3-1-1 compliant liquids and gels in their carry-ons when traveling through the
Terminal 3 Premium Checkpoint at SFO, the Main Terminal Checkpoint D at BWI,
and the Main Terminal Checkpoint 4 at SJU.

"We are excited that the TSA is expanding the PreCheck process to our San
Francisco hub," said Alex Marren, United's senior vice president of network
operations and United Express. "We now have PreCheck at seven of our United
hubs and 15 other airports, and customers are welcoming the new process."

The TSA manages and operates this program and is working with United and with
U.S. Customs and Border Protection to identify possible participants. Eligible
United MileagePlus members are being invited to participate in the initial
phase. Non-members may qualify by becoming eligible members of U.S. Customs
and Border Protection's Trusted Traveler programs. For customers who choose to
participate, the TSA will determine eligibility for expedited screening prior
to each flight and will embed this information in the barcode of eligible
customers' boarding passes. TSA agents will scan the boarding pass and direct
eligible customers to the assigned pre-screening lane. The TSA will always
incorporate random and unpredictable security measures, so no customers are
guaranteed expedited screening.

MileagePlus members participating in this program may be eligible for
expedited security screening at Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago O'Hare,
Cincinnati, Denver, Honolulu, Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles,
Minneapolis-St. Paul, Newark, Orlando, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Portland,
Ore., Reagan Washington National, Seattle, and Washington Dulles, in addition
to Baltimore, San Francisco and San Juan, Puerto Rico. United customers can
look forward to TSA PreCheck launching at additional airports in 2012.
