Continental step closer to Houston-Nigeria flights


Continental Airlines said Tuesday that Nigerian aviation officials approved its application to sell tickets for flights between Houston and Lagos, a route linking oil centers on two continents.

Flights are scheduled to begin in November 2011 and would be the first daily scheduled service between Texas and Africa. United, which will eventually be combined with Continental, plans to fly to Lagos from Washington beginning in December.

The airlines are owned by United Continental Holdings Inc. Its shares fell 52 cents, or 1.8 percent, to close at $27.68.
