For the 13th consecutive year, readers of Global Traveler, a monthly publication written exclusively for frequent business and luxury travelers, voted United’s MileagePlus loyalty program the Best Overall Frequent Flyer Program in the world for 2016. United has been recognized with this award every year since the inception of the GT Tested Reader Survey in 2004.


In this survey completed by frequent business and luxury travelers, United’s MileagePlus program further solidified its standing as the airline industry’s leading loyalty program with an additional win for Best Frequent-Flyer Bonus Program.

The United MileagePlus Club Card from Chase was awarded as Best Credit Card and Best Credit Card Rewards Program and the United MileagePlus Explorer Card as Best Frequent-Flyer Affinity Credit Card Redemptions.

“The accolades given to United’s MileagePlus program validate our continued commitment to providing our loyal customers with an industry-leading experience,” said Praveen Sharma, Vice President, Loyalty at United.

United was also named Best Trans-Pacific Airline for the third straight year. United’s Asia/Pacific hub, San Francisco International Airport, offers more nonstop trans-Pacific service to and from the United States than any other carrier hub.
