HOUSTON -- Continental Airlines bumped up its air service to
destinations in Latin America.
The carrier said it would reinstitute daily service between
Newark and Caracas, Venezuela, beginning Dec. 12.
Continental previously offered daily service on the route but
reduced the flight schedule to once a week due to decreased demand
after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Currently, Continental flies
from Houston to Caracas.
On the flights, Continental will operate Boeing 737-700
Meanwhile, Continental also launched new, direct service between
Newark and Guatemala City and between Newark and Belize City,
Belize, with continuing service to San Pedro Sula, Honduras.
Service on those routes is set to begin Dec. 14. Government
approval is pending for the start to the Belize service.
Continental will operate a 737-800 Boeing aircraft on the
Saturday-only Belize City flight.
