Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Tips.com Latest Travel News Wednesday, 25 August 2010

Star Alliance partners Continental Airlines and Aegean Airlines have started codesharing on Continental’s flights between its New York hub at Newark Liberty International Airport and Athens, as well as on selected flights operated by Aegean Airlines in Europe.

Continental now places its “CO” code on selected Aegean Airlines-operated flights between Athens and six leading holiday destinations in Greece (Thessaloniki, Heraklion, Rhodes, Mykonos, Santorini, Chania) and between Athens and Larnaca, Cyprus.

At a future date still to be determined, Continental will also codeshare on Aegean flights between Athens and London/Heathrow, United Kingdom, and Munich and Frankfurt, Germany. Pending government approval, Continental will also codeshare on Aegean flights between Athens and Paris/Charles de Gaulle, France, and Rome/Fiumicino, Italy.

Aegean Airlines is now placing its “A3” code on Continental’s flights between New York/Newark and Athens. Pending government approval, Aegean will also codeshare on Continental flights from New York/Newark to Paris/Charles de Gaulle and to Rome/Fiumicino.

“Aegean Airlines continues to expand its codeshare strategy across the world. Thanks to this new partnership with Continental Airlines we can now offer Greek passengers a great travel solution to New York,” said Aegean Airlines’ chief executive officer, Dimitris Gerogiannis. “This is another example of the many new advantages our recent Star Alliance membership offers our passengers.”

Because both Continental and Aegean Airlines are members of Star Alliance, members of Continental’s frequent flyer program, OnePass, and Aegean Airlines’ frequent flyer program, Miles & Bonus, are able to earn and redeem mileage anywhere on either airline’s global route network.

Continental BusinessFirst passengers, OnePass Star Alliance Gold members and Presidents Club members traveling on a same-day Star Alliance member flight are able to access Aegean Airlines Lounges at the flight’s departure city, while Aegean Airlines Business Class passengers and Miles & Bonus Star Alliance Gold members are able to access Continental’s Presidents Club lounges worldwide prior to departure on a same-day Star Alliance member flight.

Continental has been serving Athens since 2007. The airline’s flights to New York/Newark are operated with Boeing 767-400ER aircraft with a total of 235 seats – 35 in the award-winning BusinessFirst cabin and 200 in economy.
