Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Monday, 9 July 2007

Continental Airlines and Kingfisher Airlines, one of the fastest growing airlines in India, have entered into a comprehensive partnership for frequent flyer and airport lounge access reciprocity and future codesharing.

Continental has operated daily, non-stop flights between its New York hub, Newark Liberty International Airport, and Delhi since 2005. The airline will launch daily, non-stop flights between New York Liberty and Mumbai on October 1, 2007 (eastbound).

Beginning October 1, 2007, members of the two airlines frequent flyer programs, Continentals OnePass and Kingfishers King Club, will be able to earn and redeem miles on all flights operated by the other carrier. Reciprocal airport lounge access for eligible customers, including Continental BusinessFirst and Presidents Club members, will also begin at this time.

By the end of the year, the carriers plan to begin codesharing. Continental will place its code (CO) on Kingfisher flights connecting to Continentals daily flights between New York and Delhi and new service between New York and Mumbai.

Customers traveling on connecting flights between Continental and Kingfisher will be able to have single check-in for all flights, including the issuance of electronic tickets, boarding passes and checked baggage to their final destination.
