United Airlines

San Francisco, CA: (Mar-21-07) Bay Area regulators filed charges against United Airlines and fined the airline $400,000 for disregarding pollution control requirements and failing to ensure properly functioning air filtering equipment at its airport maintenance facility. The Bay Area Air Quality Management District said that it has taken a proactive approach to control pollution and has levied high fines on finding that there have been several air quality violations at United's San Francisco International Airport maintenance facility extending from September 2003 to the middle of 2005. One of the most serious being United's failure to ensure the proper operation of an air exhaust system designed to clean the air during the chrome-plating of airplane parts. The exhaust system operated improperly for eight months, but United failed to fix the system for several more months after air district inspectors discovered the problem and pointed it out.
