CO Opens New Cargo Facility at JFK

Continental Airlines Opens New Cargo Facility at New York's JFK International Airport

HOUSTON, May 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Continental Airlines (NYSE: CAL - News) today opened a new, state-of-the-art cargo handling facility at JFK International Airport in New York City. The new $25 million facility, which will improve cargo handling and expedite shipments of all kinds, combines freight operations that were previously housed in two separate buildings.
Twelve daily, round-trip "truck flights" between the new cargo facility and the airline's Newark hub tie the JFK operation into Continental's extensive Asian, European, Latin American and transcontinental network.

Continental's JFK cargo operation features more than 54,000 square feet of cargo handling area as well as 8,500 square feet of office space for 100 employees. Approximately 23,000 square feet of paved areas for truck staging and customer parking will minimize traffic congestion as customers drop-off or pick-up shipments.
