United Airlines Launches New Meetings Portal, Available on United Jetstream
WHY IT RATES: Travel agents and advisors working with business clients should be taking note of the changes implemented by United Airlines.—Donald Wood, Breaking News Senior Writer.
United Airlines is improving the way customers plan travel for meetings, conferences, conventions and more with the launch of its new state-of-the-art United Meetings product, available on the airline’s business portal, United Jetstream.
The new product makes managing travel and redeeming rewards for meetings and events quicker and more streamlined with enhancements that include discounts accessible in one business day, instant amenity redemption and personalized reports accessible at the click of a mouse.
“At United, our mission is to connect people and unite the world. This new Meetings portal on Jetstream allows us to do just that by making it easier and more rewarding to bring people together for meetings, events, conferences and more,” said Jake Cefolia, senior vice president of worldwide sales at United. “We’re listening to our customers and making changes that they ask for as we continue to make traveling and working with United better every day.”
United Meetings handles the work of getting attendees to events around the world in comfort and with a discount. The new portal makes it easy for meeting planners to make a request and receive flexible discounts for participants within one business day, and quickly turn travel funds into rewards such as beverage coupons, travel certificates, United Club passes and memberships and more.
The site also provides planners with a personalized dashboard to track the number of tickets booked, flights flown, amenities funds earned and the number of tickets needed for the next amenity award, helping users stay up-to-date on rewards and meetings attendance.
United Meetings is available to organizations around the world who are interested in hosting a meeting of 10 or more participants. Discounts are extended to travel on United’s Star Alliance and joint venture partners, making traveling and connecting on partner airlines seamless.
United is continuing to add value to its Meetings product to deliver an experience and tool that meets and exceeds the needs of its customers.
