The chipper airline is adding more competition to its search engine as it begins to sell tickets for a broader range of flights.
The company, owned by United Airlines Group Inc., is adding a feature to its ticketing website to allow customers to search for airfare using the keyword chipper.
The chipping feature will launch on the chipperair.com website Friday and allow users to search by category, time of flight, and type of ticket.
The site will also include information on how to book a flight using a ticket or by checking out a flyer on the airline’s website.
The airlines website is currently available in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, and Korean.
For a limited time, customers can get an airline-specific discount by using a coupon code and clicking on the blue “Apply” button.
The chipper Air Ticketing feature is one of the features added by United to its Airfare Finder program.
The airline has offered similar features to the chippers search feature since 2010.
The features also allow users who don’t want to pay to buy a ticket to search using the airline instead.
United announced in October that chippers searches would be available on its website from Friday, which is also the date the chips search feature is expected to launch.
United previously offered the chippered search feature on its search app.
ChipperAir.com, owned and operated by United, is available in all major markets.
United is offering chipper tickets to international customers and is planning to expand chipper searches in the United States, the company said.
The United-owned airline said it had reached 10 million international customers on its site, and it expects to add another 100 million to the United MileagePlus.com site within the next six months.
