Continental Bullish on Manila

May 13, 2009

Adds 2 new Guam-Manila extra flights

Hagatna, Guam-Continental Micronesia has added a new flight service between Manila in the Philippines and Guam for the peak summer travel.

Beginning June 6 until July 11, the airline has added Saturday morning flight service to Manila from Guam. Flight 893 departs Guam at 7:10am and arrives into Manila at 8:50am. Flight 894 departs Manila at 10am and arrives into Guam at 3:40pm.

“The additional flight frequency is in response to customer demand and will enhance the packages offered through our Continental Holidays product,” said David Kendell, Sales and Marketing director.

Continental also operates daily evening service to Manila with a 155-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

“The benefit of the extra flight service on Saturday morning is also to accommodate our customers who flow through to Southeast Asia destinations for their summer travel and for those who look to Manila as a weekend getaway,” Kendell said.

Celebrating more than 40 years of service in Guam and Micronesia, Continental Micronesia is headquartered in Guam and operates a Pacific hub from the A.B. Won Pat International Airport.

Continental Micronesia and its code share partner Cape Air operate 86 weekly commuter service flights between Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. The airline also intends to re-introduce flights between Saipan, the US Commonwealth of Northern Marianas, and Manila that was suspended in July 16 last year.

Continental Airlines is the world's fifth largest airline.
