Orlando and Houston the top onward destinations for transatlantic travellers
Travellers flying from Bristol International on Continental Airlines’ transatlantic service to New York are taking advantage of convenient onward connections to visit cities across North America, with Houston the top business destination in 2008, and Orlando most popular with leisure passengers.
The flight celebrated its third anniversary last May and has carried over 250,000 people across the Atlantic since its launch in 2005. However, around 50 per cent of passengers boarding at Bristol have a final destination beyond the Big Apple, using Continental’s extensive network of services across the USA, Canada and Latin America.
Shaun Browne, Aviation Director at Bristol International Airport, said:
“Continental’s service doesn’t just make New York accessible, it puts destinations across North and South America within reach of South West passengers, without the hassle of flying from airports outside the region.”
