Continental begins Q400 flights

5th Feb 2008

Continental Airlines has begun service with a new type of regional aircraft from its New York hub at Newark Liberty International Airport.The efficient, quiet and comfortable 74-seat Bombardier Q400 will allow Continental to increase seat capacity at its Newark hub without adding more flights. The Q400 is an ideal aircraft to operate at Liberty as it will allow more extensive use of alternate approach and departure routes and will enable flight operations at lower altitudes.

“Our selection of the Q400 aircraft is an important move for us because it addresses our need for efficiency without sacrificing our customers’ comfort, and because it is well-suited to the unique operating environment at Newark Liberty,” said Mark Erwin, Continental’s senior vice president of corporate development.
