Continental Airlines will begin nonstop flights between Newark Liberty International Airport and Port-Au-Prince, Haiti on June 9.

The Houston-based carrier will have three flights a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Daily service will commence July 1, according to United Continental Holdings, which was formed last October through the merger of Continental and UAL.

"We are pleased to offer convenient service to Port-Au-Prince, Continental’s 27th Caribbean destination," said John Slater, United Airlines vice president of sales-Americas. "Thanks to the combined fleet of both United and Continental, we are now able to offer more travel options to new destinations."

The four-hour flight will leave Newark at 9:25 a.m. and land in Port-Au-Prince at 12:15 p.m. The return flight will depart at 1:20 p.m. and arrive in Newark at 6:15 p.m. The airline will use a Boeing 737-800, which can seat 160 passengers.
