United-Continental wasting no time with merger website

05/06/2010| 9:29:02 AM| 中文

The boards of United Airlines and Continental Airlines approved the mammoth merger at 2nd may, but the ink hardly was dry when they published a spiffy merger website at 3rd May.

The boards of United Airlines and Continental Airlines approved the mammoth merger yesterday, but the ink hardly was dry when they published a spiffy merger website this morning.

It’s a great communications move as the website answers many top-of-mind questions, including:

The combined airlines would be called United Airlines, but use Continental logos;

Continental CEO Jeff Smisek would be CEO, United CEO Glenn Tilton would be nonexecutive chairman, and Smisek would become chairman at Tilton’s exit in two years;

There will be roughly equal numbers of management from each airline;
United shareholders will have a majority stake and the merged airline would be headquartered in Chicago;

The merged airline would deliver $1 billion to $1.2 billion in annual synergies by 2013.
