CONTINENTAL PREPARES TO LAUNCH NEW FLIGHTS IN EAST FEATURING 'PEANUTS FARES' AND 'ADD A PENNY, ADD A PAL'
HOUSTON, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Continental Airlines is preparing to launch tomorrow 108 jet flights in the East featuring its new, low, unrestricted "Peanuts Fares" as well as an "Add a Penny, Add a Pal" offer for one-cent companion travel. Tonight Continental is ferrying aircraft into position to prepare for early-morning inaugural flights. "Bookings to date have certainly met our expectations and we are pleased with the outlook for our new service," said a spokesman. "Our success depends on the ability of Peanuts Fares to draw people out of their cars and off their couches, and thus far we see exactly the response we expected." Flights are being added in Atlanta, Baltimore, Cleveland, Fort Lauderdale, Greensboro, Jacksonville, New Orleans, Newark, Norfolk, and Tampa. Among the new all-jet flights are a triangle of routes serving Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville and Tampa with a Peanuts Fare of $49 between any two cities. The airline will begin flying to Charleston Nov. 1 with three daily jet flights to Greensboro and three daily jet flights to Jacksonville. Peanuts Fares -- available on every seat, every flight, every day on applicable routes -- carry no advance purchase requirement and are refundable without charge at any time. With a reservation as little as one day in advance and a stay at the destination as short as one night -- any night -- anyone traveling on a Peanuts Fare ca n "Add a Penny, Add a Pal." For just one cent extra, a companion travels on the same itinerary. The number of one-cent companion seats available per flight will vary. -0- 9/30/93 /CONTACT: Continental Corporate Communications, 713-834-5080/
