Continental to launch daily service to Lagos

Continental Airlines announced (14-Jun-2010) plans to launch daily Houston-Lagos service on 10-Nov-2011, with the proposed route to be the first daily scheduled service offered between Texas and Africa by any carrier - see Route Changes Table for more information. Lagos will be Continental's first destination in Africa and the 30th city in its trans-Atlantic route network. The proposed Lagos route is the second new international destination announced in the past month that will be served from Houston, Continental's largest hub. Continental serves 63 international destinations from Houston and recently announced plans to launch Houston-Auckland service from 16-Nov-2011.  With the addition of services to Africa, Houston will become one of only four cities in the world (and the only city in the Western Hemisphere) to operate nonstop service to every inhabited continent on the globe. The carrier plans to operate the services with B787-8 equipment, configured with 36 BusinessFirst seats and 192 Economy seats. [more]
