US- Continental Airlines has contributed an additional US$50m in cash to its defined benefit (DB) pension plans.
This latest addition has brought its total year-to-date pension contributions to $261m.
Larry Kellner, chairman and CEO of Continental Airlines, said: "We continue to focus on doing the right things for our co-workers and fulfilling our pension commitments."
Continental expected to contribute more than $325m to its pension plans in 2007, significantly exceeding its minimum funding requirement of $187m for the year.
The recent cash boost follows the company's announcement in July when it injected an additional $75m into its DB plans.
