United and Continental introduce United Club

United Continental Holdings will introduce a new name for its airport lounges on Oct. 1.

United Club, the re-branding of United’s Red Carpet Club and Continental’s Presidents Club, marks a further step in the integration of the two airlines’ products and services to provide a more consistent travel experience for customers.

At more than 50 lounges in 39 airports worldwide, United Clubs offer members and their guests complimentary bar service, light snacks and beverages; business amenities such as Wi-Fi, conference rooms and workstations; and personalized assistance with reservations, seat selection, upgrades and boarding passes.  In time, remodeled clubs will provide additional business-friendly features that customers say they value, including more workstations that enable travelers to be more productive.

Red Carpet Club and Presidents Club members may access any of the new United Clubs with their current membership credentials. Members also have access to Star Alliance departure lounges around the world when traveling on a Star Alliance member carrier.

A variety of United Club membership options is available, with annual memberships starting at $495.
