IF THERE’S AN IPHONE, BlackBerry or any other mobile device with internet access sitting in your carry-on bag right now, we have just the thing to ease your travel experience.

Whether you’re rushing to the airport from a conference or debating what to pack for your vacation, we understand you’re constantly on the go. So to keep you from needing to slow down to print a boarding pass, we have launched mobile check-in for all domestic United- and United Express–operated itineraries, giving you the ability to check in for flights from any device that is web-enabled. This includes cell phones, personal digital assistants, e-book readers and tablets. In addition to checking in, you can view flight status, check flight availability and find Red Carpet Club locations.

We have also launched “paperless” mobile boarding capabilities at more than a dozen airports and expect to have the service in 30 airports by this summer. You can have your boarding pass sent directly to your mobile device via email, enabling you to breeze through the security checkpoint and the boarding gate with only your mobile device in hand.

We know that being on the go can be stressful and hope these enhancements make your travel experience more enjoyable.

To use mobile check-in, please visit our new mobile web site: mobile.united.com.
