CONTINENTAL AIRLINES is to introduce non-stop flights between New York and Cairo from next May. The airline will, once again, operate from Newark rather than JFK leaving the alternative airport to Delta and Star Alliance partner Egyptair. It will be the 30th city in the carrier’s transatlantic route network. By the time the route is introduced Continental would have merged with United Airlines. Continental will operate the flight with a Boeing 777-200ER aircraft, seating 50 customers in BusinessFirst with flat-bed seats and 226 customers in Economy Class. Flying time eastbound will be approximately 10hrs 25mins, and westbound 12hrs 10mins. The plan is to operate the route on a daily basis during peak summer travel season, with five- and four-times-weekly service during certain periods in the first year of operation. www.continental.com
