Continental Restores Cancun Service

Continental Airlines has restored nearly all of its flights between the United States and Cancun International Airport since Hurricane Wilma hit the region last fall. Currently, the airline is operating 61 flights per week to Cancun, almost 90 percent of its seats available in the market pre-Wilma. Continental said its restored flight schedule is a hopeful sign for Cancun's visitor-dependent economy; the airline also stressed that travelers visiting one of the Caribbean's most popular vacation hotspots will find the destination and its newly renovated resorts, restaurants, beaches and attractions in better condition and even more accessible. Continental currently operates a total of 61 weekly departures from Cancun, including 44 to Houston, 16 to New York/Newark Liberty and one to Cleveland. The carrier provides approximately 15 percent of the total seats between Cancun and U.S. points.
