Continental Airlines is to move its Tokyo operations to the South Wing of Terminal 1 at Narita International Airport, effective 1 November 2009, with flights departing and arriving at the terminalís south gates and the check-in counter relocating to the South Wing main lobby.

The relocation will enable customers to connect seamlessly at Narita between Continentalís five daily transpacific and Micronesia flights and United Airlinesí 11 daily transpacific and intra-Asia flights departing from Tokyo.

 In addition, when Continental joins Star Alliance at the end of October, the relocation will facilitate connections with ANA and other Star Alliance member airlines, including Air China, Asiana Airlines, Singapore Airlines and THAI, all of which operate from the South Wing of Terminal 1. Star Alliance airlines offer a total of 77 daily departures from Narita.

Continental customers in Tokyo will receive the same airport services currently offered for all of Continentalís long-haul international flights including designated OnePass Elite and BusinessFirst check-in and priority baggage handling and BusinessFirst concierge service.

Continental Presidents Club members and BusinessFirst customers will have access to Unitedís Red Carpet Club located in Airside Satellite 3, as well as to two lounges operated by ANA.

ďThis move will occur right after we join Star Alliance and will give our customers better connections to more destinations throughout Asia with United and other Star Alliance member airlines,Ē said Mark Erwin, Continentalís senior vice president of corporate development and alliances.

Mark Schwab, Unitedís senior vice president of alliances, international and regulatory affairs, added, ďContinentalís move to the South Wing of Terminal 1 at Narita will give Unitedís customers in Asia additional options for travel throughout Asia and Micronesia, and more convenient service to New York, Houston, the southern U.S. and Latin America.Ē
