Former CO International Routes From EWR

These are some routes that CO once operated:

EWR-Dusseldorf, Germany (DC10-30, B757-200ER)
EWR-Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (B767-200ER)
EWR-Munich, Germany (DC10-30)*
EWR-Cologne, Germany (B757-200ER)
EWR-Santiago, Chile (DC10-30)

The EWR-MUC route only operated for about six months, in 1993. At the time, CO operated a handful of transatlantic flights from EWR (LGW, ORY, FRA, MAN, BHX, and FCO/MXP with AZ).

Can anyone think of other long haul routes CO operated from EWR?

To add....EWR-ORY (747, DC10), EWR-LGW (747, DC10), EWR-VCE (charters one summer with DC10), JFK-MEX (737, DC10), JFK-HNL (DC10 - clearly not an international leg but long haul, nonetheless),

Quoting ContinentalEWR (Thread starter):
EWR-Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (B767-200ER)

Was also flown with the DC10 and 764.

Quoting ContinentalEWR (Thread starter):
EWR-Santiago, Chile (DC10-30)

And the 752 with the add on from LIM before we closed the SCL station.

CO has not cut a lot of long haul routes from EWR, they tend to be more conservative with their International expansions. The only other routes not already listed I can think of are..

Guayaquil (nonstop 737-800, also one stop via PTY prior)
Quito (757-200 via BOG)
Kingston (737-800)

EWR-MAN launched in 1995 with a 757.

EWR - STN (Stansted, UK). I thought that route was done well.

Would be nice to see a EWR-GIG-CNF in the future. Lets see with CO looking for a IAH-GIG if they can develop better Rio's market.



New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

Is this correct? I think it may have been the D10 or 764 with the 757 being used only in the past couple of years.

It launched in 1995 with a 757, CO was flying 757s across the Atlantic years before TWA, DL, AA, NWA etc..

That's correct, CO's EWR-GIG flight continued on to CNF.

Another route I just remembered is EWR-Barbados.

Didn't CO briefly serve EWR-GRU-CNF or some combination thereof in the late '90s? I seem to remember it operating with a DC-10-30.

Also, at the same time CO operated EWR-LIM-SCL, the IAH-LIM continued to LPB or VVI in Bolivia, but the route lasted for only a couple of months because CO couldn't carry local traffic from LIM.

This route ( as well as MBJ ) was also flown non-stop from EWR using their B727's in the early 90's as well, when they had that ' light brown' coating and red logo. One of their B727's once had an emergency landing at MBJ back then. Don't remember what was the exact problem but I think it was hydraulics. A bit of history there

Correct. It was a 5 day trip for us.

VVI in Bolivia

VVI, indeed. The flights ran EWR-LIM-SCL and IAH-LIM-VVI.

I would love for SCL to return! We can only hope when they get a few more frames (whenever that will be)

After EWR-ATH was started, wasn't it pared down to a seasonal route fairly recently?

JFK-HNL

While not EWR, but still NYC nonetheless, this flight also continued to SYD, according to my CO timetable from 2/1/87.

Correct. It is now a seasonal flight. When we did it year-round, it was a few times a week in the winter. We also pulled Ponce, Puerto Rico.

Guayaquil was pulled as the add-on from PTY. As was UIO from BOG.

Rio started as a DC10 then switched to a 764.


I remember it well as I was in the right seat of the -400 on one of the first flights.

CO still flies EWR-SAL and EWR-SAP on Saturdays, CO never flew EWR-MGA.

CO expanded the EWR hub into the Caribbean in 1989, at the time they operated..

EWR-
Aruba daily 737-300
St.Thomas, St.Croix daily 727-200 ( I flew this route in '93, '94 and when it was re launched with the 737-700)
St. Maarten, Antigua 1 daily 727-200
Montego Bay 1 daily 727-200
Kingston 1 daily 727-200
Puerto Plata 1 daily 727-200
Santo Domingo 1 daily 727-200

During peak weeks CO flew in A300s to AUA, STT, SXM, MBJ.

I remember the inaugural non-stop flight to KIN. It was on our local news and the pilot was interviewed a bit. I knew this route wouldn't last though but I was confident about EWR-MBJ

Interesting. Didn't have a clue they used the A300's to MBJ at times. At the time I usually see only AA & JM's A300's at both KIN & MBJ. I am not sure if PA or EA used their A300's here when they were around as I usually see their B727's.

It does but the Venezuelan Government is preventing them from operating it right now, for whatever reason.

Did CO temporarily suspended that route and now Venezuela won't allow it to re-start?
Thought CO had done with the EWR-CCS, the same AA has done with their DFW-CCS, keep it once weekly so it'll be a matter of frequency increase not the re-start of a route.

Does anyone recall when I think it was World Airways was contracted with CO to operate EWR-DUB and EWR-TLV daily with MD-11s, I think this was somewhere between '93 and '96. I remember reading about it in my Onepass statement.
