About

United Express is the regional brand of United Airlines. The brand flies across North America, serving destinations in the US, Canada and Mexico but with the majority of its flights flying within the US.

The brand was founded in 1985 and launched by United as a way for the airline to cover more ground regionally, while the parent company focussed on its mainline flights. Although United Express is a brand, it's not actually an airline itself. The United Express brand is made up of seven independent airlines that fly on behalf of the brand and adhere to the operational standards set out by United and United Express. Due to the brand not operating with a single airline, the airline has seven different hubs, one for each airline that flies on its behalf. These are at Chicago (ORD), Denver (DEN), Houston (IAH), Los Angeles (LAX), Newark (EWR), San Francisco (SFO) and Washington (IAD).

United Express covers all major destinations in the US, as well as many smaller ones, which makes it one of the top choices for flying around the US and other parts of North America.
