ew corporate liason for Continental

Continental Airlines has promoted Michelle Hurst to UK head of corporate sales. Based at the airline’s UK & Ireland head office in Horley, Surrey, Hurst will oversee key agency relationships, as well as exploring corporate opportunities nationwide. She was previously corporate sales manager and replaces Stephen Craven, who has left the airline industry. “I am delighted that Michelle is taking over this key role,” said Continental Airlines senior director UK & Ireland Bob Schumacher. “These are very exciting times for Continental in the UK as we continue to develop our unique range of services from regional airports and plan for our debut at Heathrow in 2008.” Continental flies non-stop to the US from more cities in the UK than any other airline. It operates up to six services a day from Gatwick to the US; up to 21 weekly non-stop services to its New York hub at Newark Liberty International Airport, twice-daily non-stop services to Houston and a seasonal daily non-stop service to Cleveland – plus non-stop services to New York Liberty from Manchester (twice-daily), Edinburgh (up to twice-daily), Glasgow (up to 11 times weekly), Birmingham (up to 10 times weekly), Bristol (daily) and Belfast (daily). The carrier has also announced plans to introduce a non-stop service from Heathrow to Houston, Texas on March 30, 2008, subject to government approval and the airline obtaining necessary slots and facilities at Heathrow Airport.
