CLEVELAND, March 26, 2013

CLEVELAND, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --United Airlines announced the launch
of the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) PreCheck program at
Cleveland Hopkins International Airport's (CLE) Main Terminal. TSA PreCheck
also opened for United customers on March 19 in Austin, Texas. TSA PreCheck is
a risk-based pre-screening initiative that allows customers to volunteer
information about themselves that may make them eligible to expedite their
screening experience. The screening allows eligible United customers 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 Main
Terminal, south checkpoint at CLE and in Austin at the Main Terminal,
checkpoint 2, lane 4.

"We're excited to add Cleveland and round out the availability of PreCheck
screenings at all eight of United's domestic hubs," said Alex Marren, United's
senior vice president of network operations and United Express. "After
participating in the program for more than nine months, feedback has been
great and customers are welcoming the new process. We now have PreCheck at
more than 25 airports where United flies."

The TSA manages and operates this program and is working with United and 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 Anchorage, Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Boston,
Charlotte, Chicago O'Hare, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Honolulu, Houston,
Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Newark, Orange County,
Orlando, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Portland, Ore., Reagan Washington National,
San Francisco, San Juan, Puerto Rico, Seattle, and Washington Dulles. United
customers can look forward to TSA PreCheck launching in Memphis, Nashville and
Raleigh-Durham later this spring.
