EDMONTON, Alberta, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Continental Airlines (NYSE: CAL) today announced that it will introduce new daily nonstop service from Edmonton to its Houston hub, effective May 2, 2003. The new service represents the only available nonstop service between the two major energy centers and provides extensive connections to destinations throughout the United States and Latin America.

Edmonton is the fourth Canadian city to gain nonstop service to Continental's largest hub, Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport. Service between Houston and Edmonton will be aboard the 104-seat Boeing 737-500.

"With more than 500 daily departures to 146 nonstop destinations from our Houston hub, it will be easy for Edmonton travelers to make quick connections to dozens of destinations," said Continental's Senior Vice President of Scheduling Glen Hauenstein.

The daily, nonstop flight will depart Edmonton International Airport at 7:15 a.m. and arrive at Houston Intercontinental at 12:35 p.m. The return flight departs Houston at 5:20 p.m., arriving in Edmonton at 8:55 p.m.

"This is great news for our community," said Scott Clements, President and CEO of Edmonton Airports. "Continental Airlines' nonstop service not only provides excellent connectivity to our regions' oil and gas industry, but as the largest carrier serving Mexico and Latin America, it offers business and leisure travelers new connecting opportunities to a range of southern destinations."

Continental Airlines flies to more destinations in Mexico than any other airline, with more than 233 weekly flights to 20 destinations from Houston. Continental's Latin America service from Houston includes twice-daily roundtrips to many Central American capital cities and seven South American destinations, including Bogota, Colombia; Quito, Ecuador; Guayaquil, Ecuador; Lima, Peru; Caracas, Venezuela; Sao Paulo, Brazil; and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Continental Airlines is the fifth largest airline in the U.S., offering more than 2,100 departures daily to 120 domestic and 91 international destinations. Operating hubs in New York, Houston, Cleveland and Guam, Continental serves more international cities than any other U.S. carrier, including extensive service throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia.
