ANA, United and Continental obtain anti-trust immunity for the Pacific

ANA (All Nippon Airways) (Tokyo), United Airlines (Chicago) and Continental Airlines (Houston) announced the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has issued its final order granting anti-trust immunity enabling the three carriers to execute a trans-Pacific joint venture under which they intend to jointly develop flight schedules and sales activities.

Customers traveling between the Americas and Asia will enjoy more convenient flight schedules, with a broader range of fare and product options, once the joint venture is implemented.
