HAGATNA, Guam (Pacific Daily News, Sept. 30) - Continental Micronesia yesterday announced plans for new, non-stop service between Saipan and Hong Kong later this year.

Continental flight 909, which currently operates non-stop between Guam and Hong Kong, will operate from Guam to Hong Kong with a stop in Saipan beginning November 1.

On the return, Continental flight 910 will operate non-stop from Hong Kong to Saipan and continue on to Guam. The Saipan-Hong Kong flights will operate on Mondays and Fridays and will be serviced by a next-generation Boeing 737-800. Flight time between Saipan and Hong Kong is about four hours and forty-five minutes.

The airline stated in a press release that the Saipan-Hong Kong service is among a number of service offerings to the Northern Marianas Continental is planning for this year:

"With the new routes we are planning, Continental will provide world-class, non-stop service to more destinations than any other carrier serving the CNMI," said Continental Micronesia President and CEO Mark A. Erwin.
