United Airlines, in celebration of Team USA’s participation in the upcoming Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games 2018 in PyeongChang, South Korea, is shining a spotlight on Olympians and its own employees in a new campaign that makes both into super heroes.

The campaign, titled ‘Superheroes,’ highlights the 38-year relationship between the airline and the United States Olympic Committee. It shows off the ‘powers’ necessary to get to the games – whether that’s the exceptional athletic skills of Team USA athletes or the hard work of United employees responsible for flying the team and customers to the moments that matter most.

‘Superheroes’ celebrates the six US Olympic and Paralympic athletes sponsored by United and their extraordinary moves on the slopes and ice, as well as six United employees selected to represent the 90,000 United team members who get customers to their destinations safely and comfortably.
