United Airlines tomorrow will open its new United Club lounge in Terminal 2 at San Diego International Airport, the third club to feature the airline’s new design concept. The opening coincides with the consolidation of United’s terminal facilities to the newly expanded Terminal 2 West, offering customers a new ticketing lobby, baggage claim area and improved shopping and dining options.
The 5,842-square-foot United Club in San Diego is located in Terminal 2 West on the Mezzanine level, directly above the airport’s new Sunset Cove, an atrium that offers panoramic views of the airfield. The United Club features spectacular views of the Point Loma seaside community, balcony lounge seating within the atrium and a centrally located buffet and bar. The new and improved furnishings enable customers to relax or work with greater ease and comfort.
“The new United Club in San Diego offers customers an improved airport lounge experience that reflects a true Southern California ambiance,” said Martin Hand, senior vice president of customer experience at United. “Our investment in our clubs and airport facilities worldwide underscores our ongoing commitment to improving the overall travel experience for our customers.”
United is investing more than $50 million this year to renovate several of the airline’s 49 United Club locations. United unveiled the new design prototype with the opening of the United Club in Terminal 2 at Chicago O’Hare International Airport last year. The airline recently opened a newly designed United Club at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
As with all United Club lounges, members may enjoy complimentary snacks, beverages and Wi-Fi.
Consolidated Operations and Other Improvements
United is consolidating its operations at San Diego International Airport, relocating gates to Terminal 2 West and repositioning its ticket counters to the west end of the terminal. United is one of the largest airlines at San Diego International Airport, offering 45 flights a day to the carrier’s eight domestic hubs.
In addition to redesigning several of its airport lounges, United recently opened its new Terminal B south concourse at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport, a 225,000-square-foot facility that features modern and expanded gate-lounge areas, additional electric power outlets and more space for carry-on luggage. United is similarly retrofitting its gate areas in Terminal 2 at Chicago O’Hare International Airport and recently launched an innovative new customer service center at its Chicago hub to serve customers more quickly and effectively.
