 UNITED AIRLINES ESTABLISHES INTERNATIONAL DIVISION;
 APPOINTS TWO VICE PRESIDENTS FOR PACIFIC MARKETS
 CHICAGO, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- With international operations now accounting for more than one-third of United Airlines' capacity, the company has established an International Division. Under the direction of Senior Vice President-International James E. Goodwin, formerly senior vice president-maintenance operations, the division includes United's Atlantic, Latin America and Pacific operations.
 Because of the scope of the Pacific operation, it has been divided into two areas. James C. Brennan, formerly regional vice president- Japan, is United's vice president-Pacific-north, which includes both Japan and Korea; Don Curran, formerly general manager-Hong Kong, is vice president-Pacific-south, which covers Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand, People's Republic of China, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.
 "These appointments reflect the increasing importance of our international operations," said Stephen M. Wolf, United Airlines chairman and chief executive officer. "In the Pacific alone, we have increased our capacity 123 percent since we first established our Pacific Division in 1986. Both Jim Brennan and Don Curran bring a wealth of management talent to their new assignments as we aim to continue our growth and maintain our commitment to the highest quality service in the important Pacific markets."
 Both Brennan and Curran will report to Goodwin.

He has held a variety of management positions with the airline, including regional vice president-Southeast in Washington, D.C., regional vice president-Northeast in New York and manager-station operations in Honolulu. Brennan holds a master's degree in business administration from the University of Hawaii and a bachelor's degree in business from the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire. He is a board member of the Tokyo American Club, Pacific Asia Travel Association, Osaka-Chicago Sister City Association and is currently a member of the Board of Airline Representatives in Tokyo.
