CONTINENTAL AIRLINES EXPANDS CALite SERVICE IN EAST

 HOUSTON, Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Continental Airlines today announced that it will significantly expand its new "CALite" in the East by bringing two New England cities into the network and by adding either new routes or more frequency from every other point on the fledgling 16-city system.
 Continental's CALite service, which began Oct. 1 as an outgrowth of a study of air travelers' preferences, features low, unrestricted Peanuts Fares and high-frequency jet flights on short-distance routes, plus an Add-a-Penny, Add-a-Pal offer that allows travelers to bring along a companion for just one cent.
 Boston will join the system Dec. 16 with five daily nonstops to Norfolk ($89 each way) with direct service beyond Norfolk to Charleston ($149), Greensboro ($149), Jacksonville ($159) and Atlanta ($189).
 Effective immediately, Continental's eight daily Providence-Newark flights will have a new unrestricted fare of $59 with direct or connecting service to Baltimore ($99), Buffalo ($99), Norfolk ($99), Greensboro ($119), Charleston ($179), Atlanta ($189) and Jacksonville ($189).
 The Boston and Providence fares are as much as 66 percent less than prevailing unrestricted fares, plus they permit Add-a-Penny, Add-a-Pal companion travel which effectively cuts the cuts the cost in half for two people traveling together. Among other new nonstop CALite routes effective Dec. 16 are Cleveland-Buffalo ($59), Baltimore-Norfolk ($59), Norfolk-Greensboro ($69) and Tampa-Cleveland ($179).
 The intrastate Florida system is being improved with an additional daily departure on the Fort Lauderdale-Tampa route (total seven) and the Jacksonville-Fort Lauderdale route (total six).
 The Dec. 16 expansion adds 83 daily departures to the CALite system for a total of 256 per day. The new routes bring Peanuts Fares to 26 new city-pair markets (including direct and connecting service) for a total 79 city-pairs.
