CHICAGO, May 3, 2013

CHICAGO, May 3, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines today announced it is
providing advance notice to customers who are selected for the Transportation
Security Administration's (TSA) prescreening program TSA Precheck. Eligible
United customers will start to see the TSA Precheck indicator on mobile
boarding passes, boarding passes printed at home or from the kiosks at some
airports, allowing customers to effectively route themselves to available TSA
Precheck lanes.

"Our customers tell us how much they appreciate that TSA Precheck expedites
their security screening experience. By giving advance notice of TSA Precheck
eligibility, in collaboration with TSA, we are making the screening process
easier and more seamless," said Alex Marren, United's senior vice president of
network operations and United Express.

The TSA Precheck logo will appear directly above an eligible passenger's name
on printed boarding passes. On mobile boarding passes, customers should look
for the TSA Precheck logo at the top right corner above the barcode. The TSA
Precheck indicator will appear on boarding passes throughout a customer's
itinerary whether or not the airport has TSA Precheck, so customers are
encouraged to check that the airport is a participating location on
united.com/tsaprescreening or tsa.gov/tsaprecheck.

TSA manages and operates this program and is responsible for determining
customer eligibility on a per-flight basis. TSA continues to incorporate
random and unpredictable security measures, so customers are not guaranteed
expedited screening.

United currently participates in TSA Precheck at all eight of United's
domestic hubs and at a total of 29 airports. Qualified customers 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-Bush Intercontinental, Indianapolis, Los
Angeles, Memphis, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Nashville, Newark, Orange County,
Orlando, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Portland (Oregon), Raleigh-Durham, Reagan
Washington National, San Francisco, San Juan (Puerto Rico), Seattle and
Washington Dulles.
