Guam - Continental Airlines announced that it will resume its non- stop flights from Guam to Hong Kong effective April 2, 2010.  Direct flights will operate two times a week on the Boeing 737-800 aircraft, which has 155 seats, 14 of which are business class.

President and Chief Operating Officer of Continental Micronesia Charles Duncan told KUAM News, "What's made it possible was the Visa Waiver Program that came into effect the end of November. Residents of Hong Kong have two kinds of passports - the BNO British National overseas and Chinese passport the SAR passport it's called and before under the old visa waiver only the BNO passport were allowed into Guam visa-free and currently about 20 or 25 percent of Hong Kong residents have that passport and with the new Guam-CNMI visa waiver everyone in Hong Kong can now come to Guam visa-free."
