Continental To Open EWR-CPH - From May 2006

Thu Sep 29, 2005 6:29 pm

Copenhagen Airport has now confirmed that Continental Airlines will open a daily route from EWR to CPH from the 24th of May 2006.

Departs EWR 19.10LT and arrives CPH 9.05LT

Departs CPH 11.35LT and arrives EWR 13.20LT

Indeed good news for Copenhagen Airport!

Departs CPH 11.35LT and arrives EWR 13.20LT

Something seems to be wrong with these timings: the Eastbound sector, with a block time of 7h55, is longer than the Westbound sector, of which the above mentioned block time is 7h45. I'm pretty sure the Eastbound block time should be shorter than 7h55.

No official word from CO yet though. I don't see it loaded in their system yet.

Correct - something seems wrong! It's the schedule given by Copenhagen Airport and there is problably a mistake in these timings.

MUC, VIE, PRG all potential options. The markets really are almost limitless with the 757, although Eastern Europe is pushing it with range.

DME will happen in 2006, although the date keeps sliding. I've heard 4/2006, but that looks a bit overzealous at this juncture.

Those are just preliminary timings. Airlines always do this. They will be refined once the dispatchers figure out just how much time to block for each segment by doing the math and adding for delays, etc.

The primary reason for adding winglets was having the range to hit Eastern Europe reliably

It's about time, I've been praying for a Copenhagen flight for years now. It was an obvious hole in the network, and up until recently I had travel there 2-3 times a year.

HEL, PRG, VIE, and DME immediately come to mind for expanded CO Europe service.

I'm hoping for EWR-WAW with their 762... CO would kill LO on that route with superior BusinessFirst service... And yes, the market for two carriers serving NY - Warsaw exists, as evidenced by Delta back in the late 1990s.

actually, MUC, VIE, and PRG are beyond the reliable limit for the 752 heading back to NYC due to weather issues.

I'd love to see MUC, but I can't see it opening with a 752, and I don't think there's a way to get a 762 on the route.

UAcosCS I hope so too! Wishing UAL would finally do what SAS have wanted to do for years now... That is to fly LAX/SFO-CPH!

I welcome COA! It will be a breath of fresh air!!
Talk here about SAS slowly pulling flights out of CPH. They laid off 191 ground crews.
Think the financial debate they had with CPH earlier this year really annoyed them, how ever they are making a mistake I think!
Backing out, would in the end let them loose their special deal with CPH, making them have to pay same price as the rest... That would be the final blow...

NEW YORK, Sept. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Continental Airlines (NYSE: CAL), today announced it will launch daily nonstop flights between New York and Copenhagen, Denmark starting on May 23, 2006 pending government approval.

Continental Flight CO122 will depart New York/Newark daily at 7:10 p.m. and arrive at Copenhagen at 9:05 a.m. the next day. Flight CO123 will depart Copenhagen daily at 10:25 a.m., arriving at New York/Newark at 1:20 p.m. the same day. Flying times will be approximately seven hours and 55 minutes traveling east and 8 hours and 55 minutes west. The frequency of the service will be reduced to five flights weekly during winter to take into account the traditional seasonal reduction in demand.

"Continental already serves more European cities than any other U.S. airline and Copenhagen, as one of the region's major hub airports, will be an important addition to our route network," said Jim Summerford, Continental's Vice President - Europe, Middle East & India. "We are very excited about the prospect of introducing our award-winning service to Danish travelers."

Continental's New York/Newark-Copenhagen flights will be operated with a 172-seat Boeing 757-200 aircraft, carrying 16 passengers in the BusinessFirst cabin and 156 in economy.

The new flights will feature Continental's renowned BusinessFirst service, which has won the Best Executive/Business Class award in the OAG Airline of the Year Awards in each of the past three years (2005, 2004 and 2003), based on voting by frequent flyers worldwide. BusinessFirst was also voted Best Transatlantic Business Class among U.S. airlines in Conde Nast Traveler magazine's Business Travel Awards 2004 -- for the seventh year running.

This premium-class cabin features extra-wide electronic sleeper seats with 56-inch pitch, adjustable winged headrests and personal video screens. Other BusinessFirst amenities include gourmet menus and award-winning wines and champagnes. A specially selected and trained corps of Concierges provides individualized pre-flight and post-flight services for BusinessFirst customers at 26 key international airports worldwide.

Copenhagen is a popular tourist destination and the main cruise port of Scandinavia. Last year almost 300,000 Americans visited Copenhagen. This year the number of American tourists visiting Denmark is expected to rise by 12 percent.

Greater Copenhagen is home to 41 percent of Danish-registered companies. The city's business strengths lie particularly in energy, design, information technology, biotechnological and medical research, telecommunications, environmental technology and tourism.

Copenhagen will become the 27th city in Continental's trans-Atlantic route network, and its third destination in Scandinavia. The airline has served Oslo since 2004 and started service to Stockholm in June 2005.

In addition, Continental and Maersk Air of Denmark code share on Maersk Air's flights between Copenhagen and Billund. Members of Continental's frequent flyer program, OnePass, can earn and redeem miles on Continental codeshare flights operated by Maersk Air.

Continental Airlines is the world's sixth-largest airline. Continental, together with Continental Express and Continental Connection, has more than 3,100 daily departures throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia, serving 150 domestic and 131 international destinations, more than any other carrier in the world. Nearly 400 additional points are served via SkyTeam alliance airlines, which include Aeromexico, Air France/KLM, Alitalia, CSA Czech Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Korean Air and Northwest Airlines. With 41,000 employees, Continental has hubs serving New York, Houston, Cleveland and Guam, and together with Continental Express, carries approximately 56 million passengers per year. Continental consistently earns awards and critical acclaim for both its operation and its corporate culture.

For the second consecutive year, FORTUNE magazine named Continental the No. 1 Most Admired Global Airline on its 2005 list of Most Admired Global Companies. Continental was also included in the publication's annual "Top 50" list, which ranks all companies, across a wide variety of industries, that appear in the Global Most Admired Companies issue. Continental again won major awards at the 2005 OAG Airline of the Year Awards including "Airline of the Year" and "Best Airline Based in North America" for the second consecutive year, and "Best Executive/Business Class" for the third consecutive year.

Not a bad idea. Here in Sweden, people hardly know anything about EWR. Was standing next to a family checking in for the CPH-EWR flight, and the woman got all hysterical! "No, the airport in New York is called JFK!You're trying to send me somwhere else!" And most people here do think of JFK as New York's airport.

Interesting idea, SAS went to Newark years ago when it was a partner, investor in CO (this was after the first bankrupcty and their investment was wiped out in the second bankruptcy).....with CO now actively competing on the EWR-Scandic routes, maybe SAS would have a better opportunity at JFK?

Quoting A342 (Reply 27):

Most of CO's tranatlantic expansion is based around the 757, which means european cities out of EWR due to range......there are only two new 767 routes being discussed at the moment, those being Houston-Buenos Aires and Newark-Moscow. Adding those two longhaul routes will strech CO's widebody schedule to its practical limit. In any case, if a new transatlantic route out of IAH was to be launched, it would most likely not be to Munich which is solid STAR alliance territory; CO flew to Munich years ago and left due to its inability to attract premium fare customers who are more or less loyal to LH and its partners. Nonstops out of IAH to Frankfurt and Madrid have been promised and discussed for years but nothing has yet materialized - if CO were to launch a new route out of IAH to Europe, my guess would be FRA.

I would love to see CO flying IAH-MAD but I don't think it is possible right now even if EWR-MAD 777 flights are working extremely well. I guess that next flight from IAH to Europe will be FRA, after flying to FRA it could be possible to see them in MAD.
