Beginning November 1, 2009, Continental will offer three daily flights from Houston Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) to Washington Dulles International Airport and two daily flights from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) to Dulles.

“The new flights will begin just days after Continental plans to join Star Alliance on October 27,” said Jim Compton, Continental’s executive vice president of marketing. “The flights to Washington Dulles International Airport will provide customers with increased connecting opportunities between Continental and its future Star Alliance partner, United, which has an international hub at Dulles.”
