Continental will operate 4 new routes from EWR next summer.
Starting with Belfast (from may 26th), then Stockholm(june 2nd), Hamburg (june 9th) and
finally Berlin Tegel (july 1st).
Anyone knows wich AC type will be used for these routes.
752 can make it to belfast but not to the three other cities right??
762??

I believe all flights will use 757-200 a/c

The EWR-TXL, isn't that going to push the range limits with exceptable cargo load? or is that 500NM difference great enough with cargo loads?



EWR-TXL =3,458NM
EWR-ARN =3,415NM

BTW: Great news for CO.  Big thumbs up

Sevenair,

I thought that too. Looks like NCL will be overlooked yet again. When are EZY announcing new routes from NCL, its about time they did, it's been a while. I hope they start FAO.

I think it is likely that Continental will start Newark-London Stansted and Newark-Newcastle flights for summer 2006.

WOW,
Welcome to Berlin  Smokin cool

The next one who tries to bring longhaul to Berlin, and in my eyes the first to succeed. Maybe they'll come in a few years with their 787s  Love

There is suddenly a number of airlines operating on the USA-Stockholm routes - CO, MH, SK. Only a few years back both American and Delta terminated their services so it seems that the Swedish/US market has recovered... Maybe American and Delta consider to return as well?

oooh i hope EZY do announce new routes, would be cool! I think CO would kick itself once its comes to NCL (if it did) and realised how much money its been missing ou on-take EZY-it didnt come near NCL til about 2/3years ago, now it seems every other movement at NCL is EZY

Yup, it is great that Hamburg will finally have a nonstop US flight again, after Delta left in 1998. Still wish DL would return as well, though, but for the time I welcome CO 757s at HAM Big grin .

The flight to BERLIN will be in a 757-200 international configuration. They ran a Business First special when they announced the service. I am booked for the American Labor Day holiday in 2A and my partner is in 2B. Each ticket cost $1600.00 . A deal compared to 3 or 4 thousand.

And not to forget EWR-(HAM)BURG.

Delta was the last one to operate transatlantic into HAM. But i think B757-200 is ideally suited for such routes (versus B767 etc). So, CO doesn´t have any real competition.
Though LH will try to drive them out of the HAM/TXL-markets. DUS would have been also on co´s list but LH was more speedy in offering the BBJ business-class only service out of DUS.
So, unfortunately CO won´t get sufficient high yield traffic out of DUS...
Let´s wait and see how LH will react! I´m rather sure that LH will not offer BBJ-service from TXL or HAM.

Didn't DL announce JFK-TXL with a 763ER as well? Not quite back to Hamburg, but not bad either

CO to start 5 euro, 1 African, and maybe an Asian route this summer, we should know here shortly. But the hiring for LOS has started, despite the curious delay in the service being loaded.

It's a start, but I'd still prefer DL here at HAM, as I wouldn't want to make the drive to TXL. Car costs too much to park, and the train is not reliable.

According to Amadeus JFK-TXL will be served with a 767-300 by Delta and the 752 by Continental on EWR-TXL. Kinda funny considering that CO has a large hub at EWR and thus can fill up the flight with ongoing pax while DL depends mainly on O&D pax.

You have got to be kidding me. Die Bahn is the most reliable train system in the world.

>thus can fill up the flight with ongoing pax while DL depends mainly on O&D pax.<

Part of that is that the 763 is the smallest plane in DL's trans-oceanic fleet and also that DL does have a good degree of connecting traffic at JFK along with a strong FF base. Remember also that they can draw SkyTeam pax, while CO will have likely filled their plane by the time alliance travel kicks in.

Seems you haven't read to many news pieces about the Bahn. Ever since the route has been upgraded to ICE only, PR has been somewhat bad, with 3 trains breaking down within the first 4 days, including the inaugural train. Things have gotten a bit better, but I still wouldn't take Die Bahn again, and I speack from the experience of 10 years at high school, which included some 30+ trips with the DB, with maaaany bad experiences (delays, trains breaking down etc.).

EWR-OSL has been running for 1 year soon, using a B757-200. This is the only nonstop connection between USA and Norway after SAS pulling out. (SAS is however seriously thinking of realunching the route). I belived that CO was to launch service to HEL (Helsinki) as well this summer, but I may be wrong.

Glad to see CO expanding in Europe! The B757-200 has a range of 3900nm, more than enough for all the new destinations announced by CO (Eastbound , at least!)

On the westbound flights however, if the plane encounters a lot of headwind due to the jetstream, some diversions might be possible at YHZ, YQX or YYT! It is also possible that the planes will have load restrictions on the westbound flights, especially from ARN!

How is EWR-OSL doing? Does anyone know if there are any load restrictions on the westbound flights?
