Family travelers on United Airlines can now enjoy even more complimentary snack options with three new snacks in the airline’s economy cabin. The release of the snacks comes just in time for spring travel.


The first new complimentary snack joining United Airlines is dark chocolate & sea salt chocolate crisps by Undercover Snacks. This woman-owned snack brand is gluten-free, non-GMO, allergy-friendly and Kosher. Each package features fiber-rich quinoa, with each crisp covered with premium dark chocolate and a hint of sea salt.


Apple and mango fruit bars by That’s It also joins United Airlines’ snack trio. Made with 100 percent real fruit, these bars contain no preservatives, added sugars, concentrates or purees. Each mini bar, created exclusively for United Airlines, only has two ingredients: apple and mango.


Those craving a savory snack will enjoy the new snack mix by Summer Harvest. With a medley of rye bagel chips, garlic bread bites and pretzel twists, this classic is sure to be a favorite.


These three new snack options reflect a broader goal to elevate United Airlines’ customer travel experience at every step of the journey. With more than 12 million snacks given out every month, these new delicious options allow customers to further enjoy their United experience.
