NEW YORK, May 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Continental Airlines (NYSE: CAL - News) tomorrow will inaugurate daily nonstop flights between its New York hub at Newark Liberty International Airport and Copenhagen, Denmark. With Copenhagen, Continental now offers transatlantic service to 28 cities in 15 countries.



"Our new Copenhagen service rounds out our Scandinavian network by complementing the existing flights we offer to Oslo and Stockholm," said Jim Summerford, Continental Airlines vice president Europe, Middle East & India. "With our summer 2006 transatlantic expansion complete, we're ready to deliver the industry-leading product that our customers want for their vacation and business travel to Europe."

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

Flight CO122 departs New York/Newark daily at 5:35 p.m., arriving at Copenhagen at 7:30 a.m. the following day. The return flight, CO123, departs Copenhagen daily at 9:00 a.m., arriving at New York/Newark at 11:45 a.m. Flying time will be approximately 7 hours 55 minutes eastbound and 8 hours, 45 minutes westbound. During the winter months, when demand traditionally declines, Continental will operate five flights per week on the route, reverting to a daily service in Spring 2007.

The new Copenhagen flights feature Continental's renowned BusinessFirst service. This premium-class cabin is designed with extra-wide electronic sleeper seats with 55-inch/140-cm pitch, adjustable winged headrests and personal video screens. Other BusinessFirst amenities include gourmet menus, award-winning wines and champagnes, and a specially selected and trained corps of more than 200 concierges who provide personalized pre-flight and post- flight services for BusinessFirst customers.

As part of the route launch, Continental is offering a special promotion to its frequent flyers. OnePass members who book and travel to Copenhagen between May 23, 2006 and July 31, 2006 will earn 2,000 bonus miles. This offer requires registration. OnePass members can register for the promotion online at continental.com using promotion code 58019.

Continental Airlines is the world's sixth-largest airline. Continental, together with Continental Express and Continental Connection, has more than 3,200 daily departures throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia, serving 152 domestic and 138 international destinations. More than 400 additional points are served via SkyTeam alliance airlines. With more than 41,000 employees, Continental has hubs serving New York, Houston, Cleveland and Guam, and together with Continental Express, carries approximately 61 million passengers per year. Continental consistently earns awards and critical acclaim for both its operation and its corporate culture.

For the third consecutive year, FORTUNE magazine named Continental the No. 1 Most Admired Global Airline on its 2006 list of Most Admired Global Companies. Continental was also named the No. 1 airline on the publication's 2006 America's Most Admired airline industry list. Additionally, Continental again won major awards at the OAG Airline of the Year Awards, including "Best Airline Based in North America" for the third year in a row and "Best Executive/Business Class" for the fourth consecutive year.

Regardles of who started it first, CPH is a welcome addition to anyones schedule, including ours (Continental). I'll be working the flights for June.

As of May of this year, all but 6 of our 41 757-200s are outfitted with the BusinessFirst seats. So I would gather more destinations next year (2007) with the 757.

I, for one, look forward to all our destinations old and new.

EWRCabincrew does CO offer duty free sales on the 757 aircrafts?

(I was baking apple cupcakes...sorry for the delayed response  Smile )

Yes we do.

On our 757 (like our 767-200) flights we have one duty free cart for the round trip. This is opposed to two duty free carts for the round trip on our 767-400s and 777s.

With the exception of Spain (which no longer allows us to sell tobacco products - for an unknown reason) we carry just about everything.

I, for one, as the ISM (International Service Manager) will put away anything aside (providing we carry it) for someone who asks about duty free before I actually open the cart and sell to BusinessFirst. This includes those with seat assignments in the back.

This way you can get your selection.

A bit off topic, I know. Sorry

I am so pleased that CO is now flying EWR-CPH. I fly to New York 2-3 times a year and with CO around, SAS is forced to better their product and prices. It'll also be interesting to see how SAS reacts now that they have direct competition in all three major Scandinavian airports.

We have been waiting too. Ever since SAS pulled out of EWR-OSL, we have taken the route well. I have heard rumors of SAS utilising Icelandairs 757s for the route...sort of a wet-lease thing, but nothing has come of it. As with EWR-ARN, no noticable changes to SASs schedule or capacity.

I believe its a win-win situation for both carriers. Scandinavians now have a wider choice to North America from, at least, OSL, ARN and CPH, whether it be on us, DL or anyone else.

One thing we have in our favor is an aircraft that is economical to use in which we fly the route. (regardless of who has what opinion about flying single aisle aircraft across the Atlantic)

Correct.

Our duty free comes from a warehouse at JFK. No restocking of duty free stores anywhere overseas.

Catering, yes. Duty Free, no.

Hope this helps.

BTW...ask away any time..I just hope I can answer correctly. If not, at least direct you to the where you can find the answer.

So if you see something you really want,

A. Buy it outbound to be assured.
B. Hope for a 767 or 777 that has a cart for each direction.

How do the duty free sales rank for revenue? Certain flights bring in more than others?
And do the staff working the flights get a commission on sales.

IMHO, HEL maybe able to sustain a year-around EWR flight, even if 4 weekly in the winter; For GOT, a seasonal 4 weekly summertime EWR flight might be enough.

I've thought about this alot to. Agree with you, HEL could have daily, and GOT would fill a 3/4 weekly flight.
(about 500 000 people in city, and 1.5 in western sweden who all use this airport, and if ARN can fill more than 15 weekly flights plus other american flights (PHL), then those 3/4 should work)

HEL has been on CO''s short list for a few years; at one point a EWR-XXX-HEL flight was considered, via another Scandic city, but that idea was dropped.....pax (especially those that are paying premium fares) do not like flights that dont operate nonstop, especially when flying to a hub and many are making further connections. My guess is that CO will launch an EWR-HEL nonstop with daily 752 service in the summer, 5 times per week in the winter (this formula seems to be working for them)......it could happen as early as next summer.

As for CO's further European expansion, the rumors continue to support Vienna (if CO is comfortable pushing the 752 on this route), Moscow (if the schedules could be adjusted to free up a 762), Prague (again,the 752 issue), Newcastle (why not? its been talked about for 3 years already), a return to Munich (seems unlikely to me, but who knows?), service to another regional German airport (its gotta be STR, CO said its not going back to DUS, so what remains?) and service to a regional airport in France (if CO's stragegy of serving smaller cities in Germany and the UK has worked, why not France?).

As for GOT, I have never heard that city mentioned......if the route cannot support a daily 752 in the summer season, its unlikely that CO will consider it.

67 Dutchjet : WorldTraveler.......again and again you make your points. We hear you, and we understand that you think that DL's business plan is a superior one, but
68 COfaninBOS : DL was actually my favorite airline growing up. They used to have a much greater presence in Houston when I was growing up and we flew them quite a bi
69 AirPacific747 : What?! They must have been smoking some serious stuff! There is no way that Malmo is larger than Copenhagen.
70 2travel2know : Maybe what they're trying to say is that there are more people living in Skåne (Scania ?) - the most southern part of Sweden, than in Copenhagen. Ev
71 WorldTraveler : COfan, I'm glad you're loyal to CO but that's not what this discussion is about. I have Texas connections and am disappointed that DL is not more ther
72 Letsgetwet : WorldTraveler, I really enjoy reading your crystal ball predictions. The bottom line is that is what they are. As of right now. CO is still winning t
73 COfaninBOS : And lest we forget that CO has more 777s and 787s coming online to aid with future expansion. What does DL have planned for the future? Many of her 76
74 AirPacific747 : Well Skåne is definately not the same as Malmo. Then we could start talking about every person living on Zealand as well. Actually, Malmø is attrac
75 Post contains images CityAirline : Thanks, but I know all about this already. I'm very familiar with these kind of things to, but my point is that this list really is wierd. You say th
76 Post contains images Boeing747_600 : who is the passenger?
77 WorldTraveler : DL's 767s are actually quite young.... if you chose to look it up, you'd know that. The 764s are 5-6 years old. Many of the 763s are less than 10 yea
78 DeltaSFO : Let's discuss that in October and see what happens.
79 Airzim : And yet the Delta cheerleaders continue to ridicule rationale thought and yet completely ignore that Delta is in bankruptcy, hasn't finished the issue
80 DeltaSFO : I know you’re not referring to me with those comments. First of all, I think everybody understands the long term financial damage caused by a bankr
81 Airzim : Well you and Worldtraveler can go skipping through daisy patches next year when your miraculous Delta recovery happens. You have to make the labour a
82 DeltaSFO : Of course, you conveniently forget the MINIMUM $1.5 billion in contributions CO will have to make over the next 5 years. Think they can keep it up in
83 Klwright69 : Instead of saying as "big as they once were," why don't you say not spread so thin like the once were. Or it makes more sense for CO to serve markets
84 Airzim : DeltaSFO, Funny how you're defending yourself against CO. It's Worldtravler drawing the comparison not me. If you want to continue living in fantasy l
85 Abrelosojos : = AFAIK, bmi does not use any 757s on trans-atlantic services. 330s and leased 767s. Personally, I think bmi service is above most euro-carriers. -A.
