United is making its United fleet bigger and better by ordering 270 new Boeing and Airbus aircrafts. All of these new aircraft will be outfitted with United’s signature interior which includes more premium cabin seats as well as better entertainment, overhead storage and technology features for everyone on board.
United is also investing in the future of aviation with various initiatives:
- United will be purchasing 15 of Boom’s ‘Overture’ airliners. Once operational, Overture is expected to be the first large commercial aircraft to be net-zero carbon from day one, optimized to run on 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). It is slated to roll out in 2025, fly in 2026 and expected to carry passengers by 2029. Capable of flying at speeds of Mach 1.7 – twice the speed of today’s fastest airliners – Overture can connect more than 500 destinations in nearly half the time.
- United Airlines has signs agreement to acquire 100 of Heart Aerospace’s ES-19 aircraft, a 19-seat electric airliner that has the potential to decarbonize regional air travel.
- United Airlines launched a new, corporate venture fund – United Airlines Ventures – that will allow the airline to continue investing in emerging companies that have the potential to influence the future of travel.
As the world continues to open, United continues to lead with a committed focus on improving your experience every time you fly.
