United Transcontinental Amenity Kit Unveiled, Featuring Venus Williams-Endorsed Brand
United Airlines takes a refreshing leap in enhancing passenger experience, introducing new amenity kits featuring Asutra skincare products for business class passengers on premium transcontinental routes connecting west coast hubs and New York City. Tailored kits, spotlighting products by Hawaii’s Ua Body, are also on offer for first-class passengers journeying between the mainland U.S. and Hawaii. So, what does this mean for the discerning traveler?
United Business passengers, traversing the airline’s premium domestic transcontinental routes will be the first to experience amenity kits boasting exclusive products from the wellness brand Asutra, endorsed by none other than Venus Williams.
Additionally, United First passengers flying between the continental U.S. and Hawaii will be pampered with skincare offerings from Hawaiian brand Ua Body, slated to make their debut onboard later this month. With approximately 65,000 transcontinental and Hawaii amenity kits distributed monthly, United is poised to redefine the in-flight experience.
“We take immense pride in these amenity kits, showcasing new partnerships, exclusive products, and top-tier ingredients,” declares Peter Wolkowski, United’s Director of Onboard Product Design. “These kits, personalized for our transcontinental and Hawaii-bound travelers, signify our continuous efforts to enhance the United travel experience.”
What’s inside United’s new premium transcontinental amenity kits?
The new United premium transcontinental amenity kits, created in collaboration with Asutra, offer cruelty-free skincare devoid of parabens, phthalates or petroleum. The kits are designed to ensure the long-haul passenger disembarks feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. Each kit houses an Asutra cleansing face towelette, nourishing lip balm, and hand lotion enriched with magnesium, mango seed butter, coconut oil, and almond oil. These ingredients work in harmony to soothe, moisturize and protect the skin onboard. The kit also includes a bamboo toothbrush, toothpaste, Asutra eye mask, and ear plugs, all nestled in a reusable Asutra-branded pouch made from recycled materials. A card within the pouch inspires travelers with ideas for self-care practices during their journey.
“We are thrilled to partner with fellow Chicago-based company, United Airlines,” remarks Stephanie Morimoto, Asutra Owner and CEO. “Our mission at Asutra is to democratize self-care by offering accessible wellness products. We understand the challenge of maintaining self-care while traveling. This amenity kit provides an easy, enjoyable solution, ensuring travelers arrive refreshed and rejuvenated.”
What’s Inside United’s New Destination-Themed Hawaii Amenity Kits?
The new United Hawaii amenity kits transport flyers to the islands even before landing, with skincare products courtesy of Ua Body, a brand proudly made in Hawaii. Each kit features a moisturizing lip balm, hand cream, and refreshing face mist infused with local scents like sandalwood, jasmine, and coconut. Local ingredients such as Kukui oil and Organic Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood oil add an authentic Hawaiian touch. Each kit also includes an eye mask crafted from recycled materials, a bamboo toothbrush, toothpaste, and ear plugs.
“We are honored to partner with United, and continue showcasing our Hawaiian heritage globally through our handcrafted products,” says Leala Humbert, Founder/CEO of Ua Body.
The eco-friendly Hawaii amenity kit pouch features artwork from local artist Christie Shinn. With four different designs portraying the local landscape, the pouches aim to inspire and excite travelers journeying to the islands.
These new amenity kits are just a slice of United’s efforts to enhance the premium cabin experience. Last month, United unveiled new United First seats with features like wireless charging, vegan leather upholstery, Bluetooth connectivity, privacy screens, Italian quartzite cocktail tables, and ergonomist-designed cushions. The airline also introduced new wines in United Polaris, brought back the United Polaris Sundae Cart, and inaugurated new clubs in Newark, Chicago, and Denver – with more enhancements on the horizon.
