On Wednesday (October 26, 2022), United Airlines announced that they have partnered with Jaguar North America to offer the first gate-to-gate airport transfer service in the U.S powered by an all-electric fleet. The service will launch this month at Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) for select MileagePlus Premier members who will enjoy chauffeured rides between their connecting aircraft. The transfer will be operated with a 2023 Jaguar I-PACE HSE, the automaker’s first all-electric performance SUV. By the end of 2022, the service will also be available in Denver, Houston, New York/Newark, Washington D.C., San Francisco and Los Angeles. United projects the service will make around 60 trips per day, transporting approximately 1,000 premium guests daily.


In Wednesday’s announcment, United Airlines’ Vice President – Marketing & Loyalty, and MileagePlus President, Luc Bondar, said,


“The new United-Jaguar ground transfer program offers travelers a moment of luxury and ease, while also raising sustainability standards for the airline industry. United is working to lead with innovation and purpose that motivates the industry to do better for our customers and communities. Partnering with Jaguar to deploy an all-electric fleet is not only a smart business move, as we know customers consider sustainability when booking travel, it is the right thing to do.”


Also commenting on the new airport transfer collaboration, Jaguar Land Rover North America’s President & CEO, Joe Eberhardt, said,


“We are thrilled to partner with United Airlines to further ignite the passion travelers have for eco-minded exploration, as sustainability and electrifying performance are at the heart of the Jaguar brand. Both United and Jaguar have boldly pledged to advancing transportation technology that will help propel us towards a more sustainable future, and we are excited for travelers to have the opportunity to experience these innovations on the tarmac.”


United’s new ground transfer service is a ‘surprise’ benefit for select Premier MileagePlus members facing tight connections at the carrier’s hub airports. Upon landing, they will be greeted by a specialized Premier Services agent, who escorts the guest to the Jaguar on the tarmac and accompanies them to their connecting flight. Guests will enjoy the spacious, all-electric, five seat Jaguar I-PACE SUV, which features Amazon Alexa connectivity, as well as wireless device charging. The 2023 Jaguar I-Pace is now on sale in the U.S from $71,300 and from now through December 31, 2022, United MileagePlus members can earn 50,000 miles through the purchase or lease of a Jaguar vehicle.


United Airlines’ shared purpose is “Connecting People. Uniting the World.” In 2019, United and United Express® carriers operated over 1.7 million flights carrying over 162 million guests. United Airlines operates the most comprehensive network among North American carriers with mainland U.S. hubs in Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New York/Newark, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. Shares in the company’s parent, United Airlines Holdings, Inc., are publicly traded on the NASDAQ under the symbol ‘UAL.’
