Continental Airlines have announced an new
flight from Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey to Hato
Airport in Curaçao.
“We are extremely happy that Continental will begin non-stop service to
Curaçao this December,” stated Executive Director of Tourism Jim Hepple.
“New York is our number one US market and our travel partners and customers
have been asking for non-stop service for some time now. We are very
confident that we will see new business as a direct result of the
introduction of this flight. We are also very happy to be partnering with
Continental which has a significant presence in the New York market.”
The flight will begin on Saturday, December 17, 2005, and operate year round
on a weekly basis, departing Newark at 9:00 am every Saturday and arriving
in Curaçao at 2:40 pm. The return flight from Curaçao to Newark will depart
at 3:30 p.m. and arrive at 7.30 PM. (in the summer months the flight will
arrive in, and depart from, Curacao one hour earlier but will still arrive
in Newark at 7.30 pm). Continental will use a B737-700, which seats 112
economy and 12 first-class seats, a total of 124 passengers.
