Third Party Apps - Important changes coming in early 2021
October 29, 2020
Over the course of time since implementation of our JCBA, United management has dedicated resources in the development of MobileCCS, UBid, and uChat all with the intent of meeting the needs of flight attendants on the go while lessening the need for Flight Attendants to incur the cost of and reliance upon other supplemental tools. United management this past week has announced, given the progress with the company applications, plans to inform the providers of all Inflight-related third-party applications of United’s intent to remove access to United’s information technology systems beginning in early 2021. At that time, the use of these third-party applications will no longer be permitted.
In an effort to protect data security and employee privacy, United’s Digital Technology team has acted to take the necessary steps to protect both of these items. For additional information on the upcoming prohibition of the use of third party apps, refer to the October 22, 2020 Scheduling Alert.
