Continental applies for Haneda authority

Continental Airlines (Houston) and its wholly-owned subsidiary Continental Micronesia (Guam) yesterday (February 16) submitted a joint application to the Department of Transportation (DOT) to provide nonstop service from the carriers’ hubs in Newark and Guam to Tokyo’s Haneda airport.

The proposed nonstop service to Haneda would begin in late 2010, pending approval, and would use Boeing 777-200 ER aircraft from Continental’s New York hub at Newark Liberty International Airport, and Boeing 767-400 aircraft from Continental Micronesia’s hub at A. B. Won Pat International Airport in Guam.
