Continental adding routes to Manila, Cairns

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Continental Micronesia's business plan for the year includes continuing the consistent, reliable product it delivers daily.  President and Chief Operating Officer Charles Duncan says in the coming months, the airline will add another Guam-Manila flight. 

Continental is also looking for more charter opportunities with an eventual expansion in China.  Duncan is also optimistic about the benefits of an Open Skies agreement between the U.S. and Japan, which lifts restrictions for U.S. carriers. "So we need the antitrust immunity applications to be filed and approved, and then Open Skies happens, and then Haneda happens, but not before October.  It's all interlinked and kind of complicated so it's a busy year for us in terms of the U.S and Japan," he told KUAM News.

He believes eventually there will be flights to Guam from Haneda.  Meanwhile, in March, Continental Airlines will increase flights to Cairns, Australia.
