United and Continental Operating Under One Name

March 5th, 2012

Passengers traveling through Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport will notice that Continental Airlines signs have been changed to reflect the merger with United Airlines. Continental signs on the curbside, at the ticket counters and in the gate area have been changed to United Airlines. However, passengers shouldn’t worry if their itinerary still says Continental, just proceed to the United Airlines counter or gate.

United and Continental received a single operating certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration in November 2011 allowing the airlines to operate as a single entity. As of Saturday, March 3 that process will be evidenced by the removal of Continental’s name on Airport signage.

Continental accounted for approximately 8 percent of all departing flights from Savannah/Hilton Head International in 2011.
