Continental Micronesia from the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands has added a new flight service for the peak summer travel period.

The Saipan Tribune reports between June the 6th and July the 11th, the airline will be adding a morning flight service on Saturdays from Guam to Manila in the Philippines.

Continental also operates a daily evening service to Manila with a 155-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

The airline's Sales and Marketing Director, David Kendell, says the additional flight is a result of customer demand and will enhance the packages offered through the company's Continental Holidays product.

He says the extra flight service will also cater to customers who have flown through to Southeast Asia destinations for their summer travel and for those who look to Manila as a weekend getaway.
