Posted August 21, 2018 04:29:51JetBlue American, the world’s second-largest carrier, is launching its first U.K. airline, the United Airlines.
The new service will use an artificial intelligence-powered screening platform to look for the same health and personal-care issues as JetBlue’s existing U.F.O. customers.
“The platform will allow us to focus on what is important and make sure our customers are happy,” said David R. Jones, CEO of United Airlines, in a statement.
“We will focus on providing our customers with a service that meets their needs, with a consistent quality of service, and with the safety and security of our passengers and crew,” he added.
In 2018, United will begin flying from Heathrow Airport in the United Kingdom and from the US, with the new service launching in 2019.
American Airlines is one of the largest U.L.G.
O carriers, with over 1,000 routes in more than 60 countries, including some that operate under foreign government licenses.
United will operate two U.A.E.-based routes in 2019, from Amsterdam to London and from London to Istanbul, according to its website.
More to come.
