United Airlines and The Private Suite announced a new partnership, offering the airline's customers access to a newly built, private terminal at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Customers who purchase access will enjoy private and personalized check-in and baggage handling as well as private screening by TSA and U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers.
United customers using the new terminal will be driven across the airfield in BMW 7-Series sedans directly to their aircraft. The United-branded lounge at the new terminal includes individual suites and restrooms and has a full bar and food service.
Access to The Private Suite will be included in certain business-class fares. The experience will initially be available through select corporate travel booking desks and travel advisors, and later will become available for purchase online or through the United app as part of a premium-cabin ticket fare.
United customers flying to or from New York/Newark, Aspen, Hawaii, London Heathrow, Los Cabos, Melbourne, Sydney, Shanghai, Singapore and Tokyo Narita who purchase this service will have access to the exclusive co-branded lounge at The Private Suite's terminal on the LAX airfield. Customers arriving from overseas will be met at the aircraft and escorted to private customs and immigration processing. A Private Suite logistics team of eight people is assigned to each booking, ensuring an airport experience without traffic, lines or wait time.
The Private Suite is owned and operated by Gavin de Becker & Associates, a consulting and service firm that handles logistics and protection for many prominent individuals, companies, and organizations.
