Continental Airlines Issues Advice for Travelers
HOUSTON, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ – Continental Airlines (NYSE: CAL) will be regularly updating its travel advice for customers at continental.com. The Web site has operational updates as well as a tool for checking the status of individual flights.
Continental is adhering to recent heightened security directives. Authorities have implemented increased security measures at all airports. Those security measures are resulting in delays at various airports. Continental is conducting normal operations, although some flights have been delayed.
Customers should be aware of new security screening requirements and the possibility of longer-than-usual screening delays at security checkpoints.
Continental encourages travelers to do the following to expedite security screening and to adhere to screening requirements:
* Passengers should arrive at the terminal at least three hours before
departure in anticipation of security screening delays.
* Minimize carry-on luggage.
* Do not pack any liquids or gels of any kind in carry-on baggage.
Additional restrictions apply for flights departing the U.K., and specific information can be found at continental.com.
Continental is revising ticket-change rules for customers traveling to/from the U.K. Travelers who are ticketed to travel on these routes on/before Sept. 1 may alter their travel dates, based on seat availability, without penalty.
In accordance with security regulations mandated by the Transportation Security Administration, Continental cannot disclose details related to security because of their sensitive nature. Continental will therefore keep its comments limited to operational and customer service matters.
