United Airlines, Chicago, Monday said it had acquired the rights to two Internet addresses to make it easier for customers to access its Web site.


Customers looking to visit the original Web address at ual.com can now do so by typing united.com and unitedairlines.com as well.


United also announced that it would begin marketing the site in its television and print advertisements and other marketing and communications materials as united.com.


At united.com, consumers may purchase travel plans with more than 500 airlines, book reservations with 45 rental car companies and 3,000 hotels worldwide, take advantage of discount travel offered through weekly and seasonal E-Fares posted on the site and register for a new flight-paging service for digital notification of gate information, delays and cancellations on United flights.
