What Are Some Ways to Check the Flight Status of a United Express Plane?

The status of United Express flights can be checked online at United.com. Status updates may also be found on the websites of the regional airlines flying United Express flights.

To check the status of a flight at United.com, click on Flight Status on the home page. Enter the United flight number, the date and either the departure or arrival airport.

There are several ways to receive email or text notifications about flight statuses. Passengers who provide an email address when making their flight reservation will automatically receive status updates if flights are delayed or canceled.

Passengers and non-passengers can sign up to receive hourly email or text message updates about specific flights using United's flight reminder system. To sign up, visit United.com, click on Flight Status and then go to Flight Reminders.

Members of United's Mileage Plus frequent flier program are eligible to enroll in a subscription service for notifications about flight statuses, including delays and cancellations.

Regional partner airlines fly some United Express routes. While partner airline flights can be tracked through United.com, they are also typically found on the particular airline's website. For example, the status of Cape Air flights can be checked at CapeAir.com.

As an alternative to receiving flight status updates directly from the airlines, the website FlightAware.com provides free tracking information for all commercial flights.
