United Airlines Partners with Walmart, Albertsons on Testing Sites

United Airlines is partnering with Walmart and Albertsons Companies on COVID-19 testing locations through the airline’s website and mobile app in the Travel Ready Center. Customers can now book COVID-19 testing appointments at more than 3,800 total testing providers, including 3,000-plus Walmart and Albertsons sites, and have their results delivered within four to 48 hours. 

Through United’s Travel Ready Center, customers can view a list of localized, eligible COVID testing locations. They may then select their preferred location and schedule an appointment directly through United’s website and mobile app.  

“As more Americans resume international travel, this enhancement to our mobile app and website will give our customers confidence and peace-of mind knowing they have access to all of the information and services they need right in the palm of their hand or on their laptop,” said Linda Jojo, United’s EVP for technology and chief digital officer.
