CONTINENTAL AIRLINES LAUDS TRANSPORTATION SECRETARY NOMINEE

 HOUSTON, Dec. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Continental Airlines today said it was pleased with President-elect Clinton's naming of Federico Pena as Secretary of Transportation for the incoming administration.
 As the former Mayor of Denver, a major Continental hub city, Pena was extremely active in aviation issues and spearheaded the development of the landmark Denver International Airport. Working with the Pena administration, Continental was the first airline to sign a lease at the new mega-hub airport, and as such the airline will occupy the preferred 20-gate Concourse A.
 "We as well as anyone know from our firsthand experience working with Mayor Pena that he is a decisive leader, with strong transportation credentials," said Continental CEO Robert R. Ferguson, III. "Since aviation plays a leading role in our nation's transportation network, we feel it is especially appropriate for the President-elect to have selected someone with expert knowledge of the aviation infrastructure, both domestically and internationally."
 Sam Ashmore, Continental's senior vice president of civic and airport affairs, and the person who worked most directly on Denver aviation issues for the airline during Pena's mayoral terms, characterized the nominee as a "tough but fair negotiator, who sets a clear vision of his objectives and pursues them doggedly. There is no question that under Pena's management of the Department of Transportation, the flying public will see visible improvements in aviation that ultimately and deservedly will be credited directly to the Secretary."
