Continental Micronesia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Continental Airlines will operate new daily nonstop service between Honolulu and Nagoya, Japan, beginning December 20, 2004, pending government approval. The new flight will depart Honolulu at 2:15 p.m. and arrive in Nagoya at 6:45 p.m. the next day. The return flight will leave Nagoya at 8:00 p.m. and arrive in Honolulu the same day at 8:00 a.m.

This new daily service to Nagoya opens up new two-way tourism opportunities for Hawaii and Japan, said Mark Erwin, president of Continental Airlines-Asia Pacific Division. Nagoya-Honolulu is currently an under-served market, and we look forward to capitalizing on the continued strong demand for Hawaii as well as the growing interest in Nagoya, Japan; knowing Hawaii travelers are looking for exciting and culturally significant places to go.

Located in the Chubu Region between Tokyo and Kyoto, Nagoya is considered the third most important business center in Japan. Home to world-class shopping, restaurants and accommodations, Nagoya also features a number of cultural and historical sites, including the Nagoyajo Castle, Atsuta Jingu Shrine, Noritake China Factory and Tokugawa Art Museum and the 2005 Aichi Festival.

Continental will utilize a Boeing 767-400 for the new route, configured with 35 BusinessFirst and 200 coach seats. Every seat has an individual Interactive Entertainment System offering free video games, music and feature films. The aircraft is equipped with oversized overhead storage bins, adjustable winged headrests and sleeper seats in BusinessFirst, laptop computer power ports at every seat in BusinessFirst and select rows in coach, and eight lavatories.

The new service will further expand the airline`s Asia Pacific network, meeting strong demand from passengers and travel agents in the Nagoya and Chubu regions for this popular route. Continental Airlines presently operates flights between seven Japanese cities (Sapporo, Sendai, Niigata, Tokyo, Nagoya, Okayama and Fukuoka) and Guam, and flights between Tokyo and New York and Houston. With the launch of Honolulu-Nagoya service, the airline will operate 73 weekly flights from Japan, while increasing total capacity by about 13 percent.
