The airline also introduced new amenity kits for United First passengers traveling between the continental U.S. and Hawaii, including skincare from Hawaiian brand Ua Body, which will debut onboard later this month. United distributes transcontinental and Hawaii amenity kits to approximately 65,000 total passengers per month.
“We’re really proud of these amenity kits – fantastic new partners, exclusive products and high-end ingredients. Our customers are going to love them,” said Peter Wolkowski, United Director of Onboard Product Design.
“These kits, customised for our transcontinental and Hawaii-bound travellers, are just the latest way we’re working to make the travel experience even better at United.”
Created with Asutra, the new United premium transcontinental amenity kits offer cruelty-free skincare made without any parabens, phthalates or petroleum and are designed to help the cross-country flyer unwind and feel refreshed upon landing.
Each kit includes an Asutra cleansing face towelette and nourishing lip balm and hand lotion made with magnesium to help create a sense of calm plus mango seed butter, coconut oil and almond oil to soothe, moisturise and protect the skin while onboard.
All held in a reusable, Asutra-branded pouch, the kit also includes a bamboo toothbrush, toothpaste, Asutra eye mask and ear plugs to help passengers rest onboard. The pouch and eye mask are made with recycled materials and a card inside the pouch offers inspiration for self-care practices while traveling.
The new United Hawaii amenity kits bring the islands to flyers before landing, with skincare from Ua Body, a brand owned, operated and made in Hawaii.
Each kit includes a moisturising lip balm and hand cream and a refreshing face mist, featuring local scents like sandalwood, jasmine and coconut and local ingredients like Kukui oil and Organic Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood oil.
Each kit also includes an eye mask made with recycled materials plus a bamboo toothbrush, toothpaste and ear plugs.
The reusable Hawaii amenity kit pouch features artwork from local artist Christie Shinn. The pouch, made with recycled materials, comes in four different designs featuring the local landscape to excite and inspire travelers to the islands.
These new amenity kits are just the latest way United is enhancing the experience for customers traveling in its premium cabins.
Last month, the airline debuted new United First seats with wireless charging, vegan leather upholstery, Bluetooth connectivity, privacy screens, Italian quartzite cocktail tables and an ergonomist-designed cushion.
In addition, United recently debuted new wines in United Polaris, reintroduced the United Polaris Sundae Cart and opened new clubs in Newark, Chicago and Denver – with more to come.
