Continental Launches Honolulu To Fiji Flight
Continental Airlines today began non-stop service between Honolulu and Fiji.Â The Fiji flight is to Nadi, the airline’s Guam hub and is aimed at connecting Continental’s flights from the U.S. mainland, Japan and Micronesia.
“Nadi is a popular vacation spot that attracts visitors from around the world and fits well with our portfolio of destinations throughout the Pacific,” said Jim Compton, Continental’s Executive Vice President of Marketing.
In addition to the Fiji flight, Continental will add three island flights on March 7, 2010.Â The additions include daily service between Los Angeles and Maui and Orange County and Honolulu, as well as four-times-weekly service between Orange County and Maui.
During the busy holiday travel season, Continental will operate a third daily flight between Houston and Honolulu.
Continental already operates twice-daily flights between Houston and Honolulu, daily flights between New York, Los Angeles and Honolulu and between Honolulu at Guam, and three-times-weekly service between Honolulu and the Marshall Islands and Federated States of Micronesia.
The new Fiji service is operated by Continental Micronesia using two-cabin Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 155 seats.
