More regional flights to New York

25 May 2005 by business traveller

Continental continues to make the Big Apple more accessible from the UK regions by launching daily flights from Bristol and a new service from Belfast.

Until now both cities have had no direct flights to New York.

The US carrier is operating Boeing 757 twin jets in a two-class (business and economy) configuration. All flights operate to and from New York's Newark airport.

Services depart Bristol at 1100 arriving Newark at 1400. The inbound overnight service leaves Newark at 2055 to reach Bristol at 0855.

Belfast flights depart at 0900 arriving Newark at 1125, with the inbound service at 1955 landing in Belfast at 0730.

For travel from now until the end of June economy class passengers pay rates starting at £302 return from Bristol and £299 from Belfast. These deals expire at midnight tonight (May 26) but other offers are expected to take their place.

Business class passengers pay discounted rates starting at £1,169 return from Bristol and £1,129 return from Belfast. They are valid for travel between now and August 31 and you can book until July 30.

Other UK regional airports served by Continental are Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Edinburgh. From London, the carrier operates from Gatwick.
