Continental announces daily non-stop from New York to Stuttgart
Continental Airlines today announced that it will launch daily non-stop service between its New York hub at Newark Liberty International Airport and Stuttgart, effective June 9.
Stuttgart will be the fifth German city to be served by the new United, formed last year by the merger of Continental and United Airlines. The new United is the leading U.S. carrier to Germany in terms of both seat capacity and number of flights.
Continental already serves Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich from New York/Newark and Frankfurt from its Houston hub, while United serves Frankfurt from its Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. hubs and Munich from Chicago and Washington, D.C.
The New York/Newark-Stuttgart service will be operated by Boeing 757-200 aircraft, featuring 175 seats – 16 in BusinessFirst and 159 in Economy.
Flight CO152 will depart New York/Newark daily at 5:50 p.m. and arrive at Stuttgart Airport at 8 a.m. the following day. The return flight, CO153, will depart Stuttgart daily at 9:30 a.m. and arrive in New York/Newark at 12:40 p.m. the same day.
During the winter months, when demand traditionally declines, the service will operate five days per week (no eastbound departure on Tuesday and Wednesday).
