Safety is the bedrock of running a successful and reliable airline – it’s foundational to our culture and our number one core value.

Safety is a shared responsibility, and we understand focusing on safety is a focus on lives of customers and employees. As such, we operate by rigorous compliance and governance, strong regulatory oversight, detailed operational procedures and policies, comprehensive monitoring and a personal responsibility by, from and to every employee at United to hold each other to the highest standards. We embody the mindset that every action matters - there are no small roles in safety.
