United Airlines has launched a new meetings product available through its business portal United Jetstream.
The United Meetings product allows users to manage travel and redeem awards for meetings and events. It also offers enhancements such as discounts, instant amenity redemption and personalised reports.
The airline says the portal makes it easier to arrange event attendee travel at a discount. Planners can make a request and receive ‘flexible’ deals for participants within one business day. They can also turn travel funds into rewards such as beverage coupons, travel certificates, United Club passes and memberships, among other incentives.
Discounts are extended to United’s Star Alliance and joint venture partners.
Users are also provided with a personalised dashboard to track the number of tickets booked, flights flown, amenities funds earned and the number of tickets needed for the next amenity award.
The United Meetings solution is available to organisations looking to host a meeting of ten or more delegates.
Jake Cefolia, senior vice president of worldwide sales, said: “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. We’re listen to our customers and making changes that they ask for as we continue to make travelling and working with United better every day.”
