He has been responsible for the Hong Kong market since 1993 and led Continental’s Pacific efforts in launching the airline’s first trans-Pacific flight from Greater China in 2001 from Hong Kong nonstop to New York.

Dias opened Continental’s first office in China in Beijing in 2005 and developed Continental’s China sales team, distribution network and promotional programs to support Continental’s first route from Mainland China, the Beijing - New York daily nonstop service, in 2005. This was the first new direct Sino-US route in the last decade. Continental’s latest Transpacific route, daily nonstop service between Shanghai and New York, was launched in March 2009.

Dias began his airline career in 1987 with Continental Airline’s finance division at the corporate headquarters in Houston, Texas. He moved to Guam in 1993 as Director of Marketing for Continental Micronesia, Continental’s wholly owned subsidiary in the Pacific. In 1995, he became Staff Vice President of Sales and Marketing responsible for Continental Micronesia’s sales and marketing efforts in Japan, Guam, South Korea, the Philippines, Australia, Southeast Asia and Micronesia. Prior to joining Continental, Dias worked in oil industry and for the accounting firm of Price Waterhouse.
