Government/ policy

in Our business

United® works to address significant challenges in our industry. With our extensive network of partners and stakeholders, we encourage a legislative and regulatory environment that will enable our industry to grow and contribute to the economy. As an industry, we face volatile fuel prices and intense competition, excessive tax burdens, regulatory and structural barriers to growth and an outdated Air Traffic Control infrastructure. At United, we are working hard to effect policy change to make aviation more efficient, profitable and sustainable.

Joining with our industry partners, United is advocating for a strong, comprehensive National Airline Policy that would rationalize our tax burden, reduce burdensome regulation, mitigate fuel cost and volatility, modernize infrastructure and enhance global competitiveness. Adopting these core principles and translating them into policy would improve U.S. passenger carrier viability and our position in the global industry.
