Continental Airlines serves more international destinations than any other American carrier and continues to win awards for its outstanding service. The airline was recently named the World’s Most Admired Airline for the sixth straight year by FORTUNE Magazine. In 2008, Condé Nast Traveler ranked Continental as the Best Trans-Atlantic and Trans-Pacific Business Class among U.S. Airlines for the tenth consecutive year.

The airline’s roots began in 1934 when Varney Speed Lines carried mail between El Paso, Texas and Pueblo, Colorado. In 1937 the company changed its name to Continental Airlines. Today, the airline’s New York/Newark hub connects the city with the most non-stop international destinations, while the Houston hub serves more cities in Mexico and Central America than any other airline.

OnePass, the airline’s loyalty programme, rewards members with everything from upgrades to reward travel. Members earn miles for travel with Continental, all Star Alliance member airlines plus Continental’s other worldwide partners.

Continental operates a modern and efficient fleet of all Boeing aircraft. The company is also committed to the environment through the Eco-Skies program. The company-wide initiative seeks ways to help minimize the airline’s carbon footprint and encourages its customers and suppliers to do the same. Continental was the first major U.S. carrier to perform a flight test using sustainable biofuel.
