Enhancing operations in Chicago

Beginning in February 2018, a newly enhanced bank structure at O'Hare will mean shorter connection times and better access to more destinations for customers connecting through the carrier's Chicago hub. This operations enhancement, already in place at United's Houston hub, will enable United to greatly improve connectivity throughout its industry-leading global route network.
