Continental Announces Daily Houston Service

Continental Airlines will
begin daily nonstop service from George Bush Intercontinental Airport in
Houston to Queretaro, Mexico, on March 17, 2005, pending government
approval. Queretaro will be Continental’s 30th destination in Mexico. The airline
already serves more destinations in Mexico from the U.S. than any other
airline, with approximately 560 departures each week.

Queretaro, located in central Mexico, has been the site of many key events
in the country’s history. Today the city is a strong manufacturing center
with many businesses dedicated to serving the automobile industry and
other industries.

“Continental is the leader in providing business travel to Mexico,” said
Pete Garcia, Staff Vice President, Latin America. “More than 100
U.S.-based companies, particularly in Detroit, the Midwest and East Coast,
have manufacturing operations or do business in Queretaro. Our new daily,
nonstop flight will provide them, as well as Mexican residents of the
U.S., with convenient travel options.”

Continental Express will utilize the Embraer regional jet on its daily
nonstop service between Houston and Queretaro. The 50-seat jet features
jet- bridge loading, a fully equipped galley, a spacious lavatory, and a
comfortable interior with only window and aisle seating.
