UNITED AIRLINES MOVING TO NEW TERMINAL AT MEXICO CITY

 CHICAGO, Nov. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines, the largest international carrier operating in Mexico City, will unveil the most modern airport facilities of any carrier there today when it moves into a new terminal featuring state-of-the-art passenger amenities.
 "All of us at United are very pleased in being the first carrier to lease space in the new terminal as an anchor tenant," said Stephen M. Wolf, chairman and chief executive officer. "We think our customers will appreciate the various improvements which collectively will produce the very best travel experience in Mexico City."
 Among the features of the new terminal are:
 -- An expanded ticket counter that will offer 19 check-in positions to expedite ticketing.
 -- A spacious First Class Lounge and Red Carpet Club with seating for up to 50 First Class customers and 95 Red Carpet Club members, respectively.
 -- A new customer service office located beyond the security checkpoint to handle "in-transit" international customers who are making connecting flights in Mexico City but not staying there.
 -- The new facility will be characterized by openness with wide queuing areas for improved customer flow through the terminal building. Tall ceilings, bright lighting and contemporary decorations will yield an elegant, modern look.
 -- Inbound and outbound customers will appreciate the size of the customs, immigration and security areas which have been sharply increased in size from the previous quarters.
 -- Access to ground transportation will be improved later this winter through a new transportation center from which taxis and buses will be dispatched and also through new parking facilities which will be immediately adjacent to the United ticket counter. Also coming is a major shopping mall with food facilities such as a McDonald's restaurant.
 As the largest international air carrier in Mexico City, United offers 77 weekly flights to seven destinations including Chicago; Los Angeles; Miami; San Francisco; Washington, D.C.; Guatemala City, Guatemala; and San Jose, Costa Rica. Seasonal service between Mexico City and both Denver and Orlando will resume in December.
