United Airlines Considers Moving out of Chicago Area

United Airlines is considering moving its corporate headquarters from the Chicago area.

United Airlines is exploring moving its corporate headquarters from its historic home in the Chicago area, according to an exclusive report on ChicagoBusiness.com, the Web site of Crain's Chicago Business.

Now based in Elk Grove Township, a Chicago suburb located near O'Hare International Airport, United Airlines is looking to relocate to downtown Chicago or possibly another major city, Crain's reports.

The nation's second-largest airline, which emerged from bankruptcy protection in February, is searching for more than 150,000 square feet of office space to house about 350 senior officials and staff, say people familiar with its plans.

Those people say the move would separate parent UAL Corp.'s executive offices from the giant operations center that coordinates its flights and airport facilities around the world.

United has hired Dallas-based tenant representative Staubach Co. to review its real estate options, the Crain's story says.
