Continental Airlines flights & tickets

Founded in 1934, Continental Airlines was a major American air carrier that was headquartered out of Houston, Texas. While the initial endeavor was a small company, the airline eventually grew to be one of the largest carriers in the country. In May of 2010, Continental announced the intention to merge the company with United Airlines. On March 3rd, 2012, the merger was completed, and Continental adopted the United Airlines name.

While in service, Continental Airlines operated a fleet consisting of Boeing 737, 757, 767, and 777, with the Dreamliner 787 scheduled to join the fleet in 2011. After ceasing independent service, several of the Boeing 737 and 767 were sold to international carriers, while the majority were retained for use in the United Airlines fleet.
