Bristol International celebrates four years of transatlantic travel as
Continental Airlines’ New York service flies into fifth year of operation!
Bristol International celebrates the fourth anniversary of Continental Airlines’ Bristol-New York service on Wednesday 20th May by treating outbound passengers to refreshments at the airport’s Seafood Bar – where, appropriately enough, Manhattan cocktails will be on the menu!
The daily transatlantic flight has carried over 320,000 passengers since commencing in May 2005 and remains the only direct scheduled link between the US and the South West and Wales. As well as providing a direct route between Bristol International and the Big Apple, Continental’s service also connects to more than 200 cities throughout the Americas via the airline’s New York hub at Newark Liberty International Airport.
Inbound passengers on 20th May will receive a goody bag containing discount vouchers for local attractions (Thermae Bath Spa, Bristol Sightseeing Tours and @Bristol), samples of local produce and information about the South West (Mendip Times Magazine, The Trencherman’s Guide and Hustrete House)
