United Will Sponsor Olympics Through 2012

With United cutting meal service and crews from international flights, it only makes since that they should be the official airline of the Olympics....again. For reasons passing understanding the U.S. Olympic Committee extended United partnership with the Olympics as the official airline sponsor.

United Airlines today announced its intention to renew its sponsorship agreement with the U.S. Olympic Committee through 2012, extending its 30-year partnership. As a result of this renewal, United will remain the official airline sponsor of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams, flying the athletes to Vancouver in 2010 and London in 2012.

"At United, we are proud to fly America's Olympic and Paralympic Teams and the many athletes who are pursuing their lifelong dreams," says Dennis Cary, senior vice president - Marketing. "Our sponsorship of the U.S. Olympic Committee gives us an association with a partner that embodies many of the same qualities to which we aspire -- all on a global stage."

United added, we are very happy that we get to fly the U.S. Olympic Teams because god knows, no one else in their right mind would fly our airlines internationally when there are thousands of better alternatives including swimming for it.
