Continental Micronesia Non-Stop Service to Okinawa

Date Posted: 1998-02-28

Feb 18 - Continental Micronesia announced today it will begin serving the market of Okinawa, Japan commencing April 6. The airline will fly three times a week every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday - to the resort town of Okinawa, non-stop from Guam. A Boeing 727 jet aircraft will service the route.

Continental Micronesia terminated services to Okinawa in November of 96 due to aircraft scheduling considerations. With the introduction of the new schedule timings for Guam-Honolulu on January 10, the Okinawa service now becomes viable as it will connect to the Hawaii flight. This will aid local efforts to stimulate visitor traffic to Guam from Japan as well as offer convenient service to US destinations for military personnel traveling to Okinawa. The flight from Okinawa arrives into the airline's Guam hub with ample connection time to Continental Micronesia destinations in the US and Asia.

"We are exited to see the re-entry of Continental Micronesia into the Okinawa market," says Walter Dias, staff vice-president of sales and promotions, "We feel this will add a positive boost for passenger traffic through the island as well as continue to grow Guam as a viable hub for world-wide connections."

Continental Micronesia, a subsidiary of Continental Airlines, is the airline of Micronesia with service to twenty-two destinations in the Asia Pacific region. The airline employs 2000 people and has twenty-four jet aircraft in its fleet. Continental Micronesia, with headquarters in Guam, was founded in 1968.
