CONTINENTAL AIRLINES

IATA: CO - 005 ICAO: COA FOUNDED: 8 JUL 1937 CEASED OPERATIONS: 3 MAR 2012

HISTORY: CONTINENTAL AIRLINES was a major United States airline, founded in 1934 and eventually headquartered in Houston, Texas. It had ownership interests and brand partnerships with several carriers. Varney Speed Lines was formed in 1934, operating airmail and passenger services in the American Southwest over a route originating from El Paso and extending through Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Las Vegas, New Mexico to Pueblo, Colorado. The carrier was renamed Continental Air Lines (later changed to "Airlines") on July 8, 1937. In May 2010, the airline announced that it would merge with UAL Corporation (the parent company of United Airlines) via a stock swap. Continental's shares were acquired by UAL Corporation. The acquisition was completed in October 2010, at which time the holding company was renamed United Continental Holdings. During the integration period, each airline ran a separate operation under the direction of a combined leadership team, based in Chicago. The integration was completed on March 3, 2012.
