United Continental's new board will help the airline fix ongoing issues, CEO Oscar Munoz said Thursday, a day after adding two new directors as part of an agreement with activist investors.
"I think they can do a lot, frankly. We've really reconstituted the board with some great experience across technology, innovation, certainly the airline experience, that's important," Munoz told CNBC's "Squawk on the Street."
The airline added two new board members Wednesday as part of the agreement with hedge funds PAR Capital Management and Altimeter Capital Management.
"The reconstituted board will do great. I'm going to miss some of the members of our board that are leaving. Certainly, we had a great run, but at the end of the day, … I think it's going to work out," said Munoz, who returned to his position last month following a heart transplant.
