United Airlines customers are now able to access boarding passes for 19 airlines on its United app. “As we continue to make improvements to the United app, we found that simply allowing our customers to access boarding passes for their entire itinerary within the same app made a big difference,” said Kate Gebo, chief customer officer at United.

United Airlines (UAL) today announced a new enhancement to the United app that will allow customers to receive boarding passes when connecting to 19 airline partners on their smart phones, a feature which no other U.S. carrier currently offers. This functionality will be available for customers traveling on United who are making an onward connection on another carrier and will improve the functionality of United’s award-winning app, which is relied on over 500 million times a year by customers.

“Our partnerships with Star Alliance carriers and other partner airlines can take our customers to over a thousand destinations around the world, and we’re excited to be the first U.S. carrier to provide customers with this convenience when connecting to partners,” Gebo added.

The following airline partners’ boarding passes are now accessible through the United app, with more partners to be added in the near future:

• Adria Airways
• Aegean Airlines
• Air Canada
• Air New Zealand
• Asiana Airlines
• Austrian Airlines
• Azul Brazilian Airlines
• Brussels Airlines
• Cape Air
• Croatia Airlines
• EVA Airways
• LOT Polish Airlines
• Lufthansa
• Scandinavian Airlines
• Shenzhen Airlines
• THAI Airways
