We have arranged thru Continental "MeetingWorks" a group fare discount that is applicable from any dates between January 27 - February 8th, 2006. You don't have to coordinate the date with us, just go to http://www.continental.com or call 1-800-468-7022 and book independently! From what we can tell, the discount is substantial.
From the US:
Continental flies to Panama directly from Newark and from Houston, and codeshares with COPA from Los Angeles, and Miami (but the discount still applies!). From other cities the discount is still available. See below for sample fares.
From Hong Kong:
You can also book all the way from HKG, as there is are direct flights to/from Newark, HKG->EWR 6 days a week (the flight HKG->Newark/EWR is every day BUT Thursday, the flight Newark/EWR/HKG is every day BUT Tuesday), but on the return, the flight times at Newark/EWR don't connect, so you'd have to overnight in Newark/New York (go shopping!). Make sure you click on "Multiple Destinations" if you are booking from HKG so that you can arrange the overnight, as the "Round Trip" will tell you it's not possible. Hard to get an exact quote, but it can be as low as $1300 all the way!
How to do it:
Or call them at 1-800-468-7022 and give them the code.
Here is a sample of the fares we were able to quote tonight, which are
pretty good ones (considering the non-discounted price)! This might not
last, and there might not be too many seats available, so try to book
soon as possible.
