Continental Airlines is moving its ticket counter and check-in area at Denver International Airport (DEN) from Terminal East to Terminal West on January 11 to be adjacent to United Airlines, as the two newly merged carriers continue to integrate their operations.
In addition, Continental’s curbside check-in will also relocate to Terminal West.
Continental Airlines flights will continue to arrive and depart from Concourse B, and inbound luggage will be delivered to terminal claim device No. 16. Continental relocated its gate operation to Concourse B in March 2010.
The airline will continue to use Gates B-16, B-18, B-20 and B-22 at Denver International Airport.
Continental’s relocation in Denver follows similar moves at many domestic and international airports, including Chicago, Houston, Frankfurt, Orlando, Tokyo Narita, Honolulu, Barcelona and Beijing.
Continental Airlines is a wholly owned subsidiary of United Continental Holdings, Inc. Including flights operated by Continental Express and Continental Connection franchisees, Continental Airlines has more than 2,400 daily departures throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia, serving 142 domestic and 131 international destinations.
Like United (and US Airways), Continental Airlines is a member of Star Alliance, which overall offers 21,000 daily flights to 1,160 airports in 181 countries.
Continental operates hubs at Cleveland, Guam, Houston and Newark Liberty, and together with its regional partners, carries approximately 63 million passengers per year. United Continental Holdings, Inc. became the holding company for both United and Continental upon the October 1, 2010 close of their merger transaction.
The two airlines continue to operate separately as they begin to integrate key customer services, marketing activities and airport processes, but eventually will be combined into one airline under the United Airlines name.
