UNITED AIRLINES PRAISES AVIATION COMMISSION PROPOSAL

 CHICAGO, Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stephen M. Wolf today praised Secretary of Transportation Federico Pena's joint announcement with congressional leaders of the establishment of a bipartisan commission to conduct an urgent analysis of the problems facing the U.S. air transportation industry.
 "United's views on the importance of such a commission are well- known," Wolf said. "The state of our industry clearly requires immediate attention.
 "The speed with which the administration and Congress have acted to establish a special commission, and the mandate to report its conclusions and recommendations in three months, demonstrate the government's appreciation of the seriousness of the situation. U.S. policies toward air transportation must be reviewed. I believe that from that review a comprehensive and consistent approach to dealing with the domestic and international problems affecting our industry can be developed," Wolf added.
 United advocated the need for a special commission addressing the urgent aviation issues in a letter to President Clinton on Jan. 6. The action the government has now taken is an important step in enabling the aviation industry to realize its enormous potential for generating long- term benefits for the U.S. economy, according to Wolf.
 "Government policies need to be redirected toward producing an environment that will allow the industry to achieve that potential," Wolf pointed out. "I believe that this commission represents an essential step in that critical process."
