“United is California’s global airline, taking Californians wherever they need to go in the world. And what’s important to Californians, like Mobile World Congress, is important to United,” said Janet Lamkin, the airline’s California President. “Tech drives the Bay Area’s economy and we’re excited to offer our customers in this industry a more convenient way to get to Barcelona.”
