Continental adds two routes in Germany next summer

NEWARK -- Continental Airlines will add two new nonstop routes from its hub here, to Berlin and Hamburg, Germany, as of next year.

The carrier will begin daily service from Newark Liberty International Airport to Tegel Airport in the German capital of Berlin on July 1, followed by daily nonstop service to North Sea port of Hamburg as of July 9.

Continental -- which already flies daily to Frankfurt out of Newark -- will be the only carrier offering scheduled nonstop service from the U.S. to Hamburg.

Meanwhile, Continentals SkyTeam partner Delta Air Lines also has announced the launch of daily nonstop service to Berlin from New York (Kennedy), to start on May 2.

There have been no nonstop flights between Berlin and any U.S. city since German flag carrier Lufthansa canceled nonstop service to Washington in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks in 2001. At one time, carriers American, Delta, TWA and United each offered nonstop service from several U.S. airports into Berlin.
