HOUSTON, March 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Continental Airlines (NYSE:CAL) announced that it will try to accommodate travel needs of passengers flying to and from Caracas, through its extensive network into the region, in case the Venezuela government suspends the operating rights of U.S. airlines on March 30, 2006.
