Continental Micronesia Offer Review of FY-1998 Schedule

PALIKIR, Pohnpei (FSM Information Service): December 3, 1997 - Continental Micronesia has developed tentative flight schedule options to serve the aviation needs of the FSM through the 1998 fiscal year and is willing to review these plans with the FSM Government officials, according to a November 25, 1997 letter from Senior Vice President for Customer Service and Sales Curt Bourg to FSM President Jacob Nena.

Bourg is recommending that the meeting is held on December 10 or 11, either on Guam or in Pohnpei. If the FSM President prefers Guam, Bourg said Continental would provide transportation for FSM officials or Continental management team will travel to Pohnpei if it is held on Pohnpei.

President Nena and his advisors met in his Cabinet room and discuss(ed) the need to have both the Executive and Legislative Branch represented at the proposed meeting which would require a more convenient date. The initially suggested dates of December 10 or 11th seem inconvenient as some Executive and Congress officials will still be traveling at that time.

The matter is being reviewed and a response will be forwarded at the earliest convenience, Special Assistant for Legislative Matters Tony Otto concluded.
