UNITED AIRLINES ANNOUNCES SIMPLIFIED FARE STRUCTURE
UNITED AIRLINES ANNOUNCES SIMPLIFIED FARE STRUCTURE CHICAGO, April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines simplified its fare
structure today, announcing lower fares for travel in all 50 states, Canada and Mexico, beginning April 13 for domestic travel and Mexico, and May 9 for Canada.
"These new fares represent a significant value for business and leisure travelers," said Senior Vice President-Marketing Adam M. Ron. "Not only do they lower fares, they also simplify the fare structure." "Importantly, this new fare structure will stimulate air travel," he added. The basic fare structure is based on four fare levels: First Class fares will now be 20 percent to 50 percent less than previous First Class fares. Coach fares will be discounted approximately 40 percent from previous full coach fares. No capacity controls will be imposed. Nonrefundable advance purchase excursion fares will be based on 21- and seven-day advance purchases. The lowest fare under the new structure will require a 21-day advance purchase and a Saturday night stay. The 21-day fare will be priced at approximately half of the new coach fare. The seven-day advance purchase fare will be priced at $40 to $60 above the round-trip, 21-day advance purchase fare. These non-refundable fares will offer travelers the flexibility to change travel plans for a $25 service charge, provided the restrictions of the new
fare are met.
Various other restrictions apply to the new fares. The new fares will be available for sale to the public tomorrow. -0- 4/9/92 /CONTACT: Lynn Martenstein, 708-952-4933, Joe Hopkins, 708-952-5770, or nights, 708-952-4088, or investor contact, Ann Thoma, 708-952-7501, all of United Airlines/ (UAL) CO: United Airlines ST: Illinois IN: AIR SU:
