What is RUAEA?

RUAEA is the Retired United Airlines Employees Association. It is made up of former employees of United Airlines, Continental Airlines and their subsidiaries. It was organized to maintain friendships between retired co-workers and to develop new friendships among retirees. The primary activities of the organization are the publication of a monthly Newsletter and the organization of a yearly national convention. On a local level, the organization is made up of chapters located wherever United Airlines retirees are located.
Our annual membership is only $30, which includes a monthly newsletter, which you can read online or receive via US Mail. JOIN US TODAY!
