COSTA MESA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Alliant Credit Union, the seventh largest U.S. credit union in asset size and the sole-sponsored credit union for United Airlines, completed the merger of its operations with Continental Federal Credit Union on January 31, 2011. Continental Federal Credit Union is sponsored by Continental Airlines and US Airways, and Continental Federal Credit Union’s separately branded US Airways Credit Union will also be included as part of the merger.
