Continental Airlines launches Daily Service to Cologne/Bonn, Germany

Travel News Asia Wednesday, 10 May 2006

Continental Airlines today inaugurates daily nonstop flights between its hub at Newark Liberty International Airport and Cologne/Bonn, Germany.

Starting service to Cologne/Bonn is another important step in the expansion of our transatlantic network, said Jim Summerford, Continentals vice president Europe, Middle East and India. This route gives our customers a choice of four Continental destinations in Germany, including our existing service to Berlin, Frankfurt and Hamburg.

Later this month, Continental will add daily nonstop service to Barcelona and Copenhagen, bringing to 28 the number of transatlantic destinations served via Newark Liberty.

Service to Cologne/Bonn will be operated with a 172-seat Boeing 757-200 aircraft, carrying 16 passengers in the BusinessFirst cabin and 156 in economy.

Flight 110 will depart Newark Liberty daily at 6:45 p.m., arriving in Cologne/Bonn at 8:10 a.m. the following day. The return trip, flight 111, departs Cologne/Bonn daily at 10:35 a.m., arriving in New York/Newark at 1:20 p.m. Flying times will be approximately 7 hours, 25 minutes eastbound and 8 hours, 45 minutes westbound. During the winter months, when demand traditionally declines, Continental will scale back to five flights per week, but revert to daily service again in Spring 2007.

As part of the route launch, Continental is offering a special promotion to its frequent flyers. OnePass members who book and travel to Cologne between May 10, 2006 and July 31, 2006 can earn 2,000 bonus miles.
