United Airlines has added Uber transportation services to its mobile app.

Customers with iOS and Android mobile devices can now access Uber ground transportation information in the United apps menu or in the My Reservations card with a current reservation.

The app will display Uber information, including types of available vehicles, estimated wait times and prices. After customers select a ride, the United app will automatically transfer them to the Uber app or the Uber website to sign up for an account to complete the transaction.

To celebrate the new service, customers who sign up for Uber via the United app and complete their first transaction will receive 1,000 MileagePlus award miles for a limited time.

Our partnership with Uber offers customers new opportunities to simplify their travel experience, said Praveen Sharma, Uniteds vice president of loyalty. Customers can use the app to ensure a more convenient journey, from checking in for an international flight from their home or office to finding instant ground transportation options at their final destination.

In addition to accessing ground transportation options and other features, customers can use the United mobile app on iOS and Android devices to do the following:

Book United flights, including award travel

Scan a valid passport to check-in for international flights

Store mobile boarding passes for easy access at security and during boarding

Select seats and choose Economy Plus seating

Check the status of an upgrade and view inflight amenities

Access United Club information and purchase one-time passes
