VIETNAM AIRLINES DELEGATION VISITS CONTINENTAL FACILITIES

 HOUSTON, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- A delegation of high-ranking executives of Vietnam Airlines today completed a visit to various Continental facilities in the United States.
 Vietnam Airlines General Director Le Duc Tu was accompanied by Deputy Director General Pham Ngoc Minh, and Director of Corporate Affairs Ngyuen N goc Quang on visits to Continental's corporate headquarters, its maintenance base in Los Angeles, training facility in Houston, and Newark hub operation.
 Continental and Vietnam Airlines are exploring several investment, marketing and operational relationships once the U.S. trade embargo with Vietnam is relaxed.
 "With the current momentum in the U.S. government's movement to normalize relations with Vietnam, this is an opportune time to discuss how Vietnam will accelerate the development of professional aviation services," said Robert R. Ferguson III, Continental president and CEO. "Vietnamese air travel is poised for rapid expansion once existing political barriers are dropped."
 Le Duc Tu said, "My associates and I were very pleased with Continental's cooperation and what we have seen. We look forward to further discussions and the development of our relationship with Continental."
 Continental, in conjunction with its Continental Micronesia affiliate, has served the Pacific for 25 years and today operates to 28 Pacific destinations including 10 in Asia. With a hub in Guam, Continental Micronesia provides service to six cities in Japan as well as Manila, Hong Kong, Taipei, Seoul and Bali.
 Vietnam Airlines, which is headquartered at Gia Lam Airport in Hanoi, currently serves 11 cities in Vietnam and operates to 15 international destinations .
 Once restrictions are eased, Vietnam travel could boom in three areas: business travel related to Vietnam's economic development efforts; tourism; and visits between Vietnamese expatriates and their relatives.
