Continental Airlines has filed an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to operate daily year-round service between its Houston hub at Bush Intercontinental Airport and Rio De Janeiro and through flight service between New Orleans and Rio de Janeiro beginning June 2009.

“We continue to see strong demand by our corporate customers for daily nonstop service between these two important oil markets,” said John Slater, Continental’s staff vice president Latin America and Caribbean sales. “The new flight will complement our existing service between the U.S. and Brazil and provide additional access for tourists traveling between the two cities.”

Continental proposes to operate the daily service utilizing a Boeing 767-200 on the route, with 25 seats in BusinessFirst and 149 seats in economy. The proposed nonstop flight will be timed to offer convenient flight connections at Continental’s Houston hub to more than 104 cities throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia and Latin America.

The airline currently operates daily nonstop service between Continental’s New York hub at Newark Liberty International Airport and Săo Paulo’s Guarulhos International Airport and between Houston and Săo Paulo, with continuing service to Rio de Janeiro. In addition, the airline will operate three times weekly nonstop service between Houston and Rio de Janeiro from 17 December 2008 through 28 February 2009.
