Star Alliance partners Continental Airlines and Brussels Airlines are to start codesharing on Continental’s trans-Atlantic flights between New York and Brussels, as well as on selected flights operated by each carrier on both sides of the Atlantic.

Effective 9 August 2010, Continental will place its “CO” code on selected Brussels Airlines-operated flights between Brussels and nine cities in Europe (Bologna, Italy; Bristol, London/Heathrow and Newcastle, United Kingdom; Hanover, Germany; and Lyons, Marseilles, Paris/Charles de Gaulle and Toulouse, France) and between Brussels and 12 cities in Africa (Accra, Ghana; Banjul, Gambia; Bujumbura, Burundi; Cotonou, Benin; Dakar, Senegal; Douala and Yaounde, Cameroon; Entebbe, Uganda; Kigali, Rwanda; Monrovia, Liberia; Nairobi, Kenya; and Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso).

At the same time, Brussels Airlines will place its “SN” code on Continental’s daily flights between Brussels and its New York hub, Newark Liberty International Airport, as well as on selected flights to five U.S. destinations operated by Continental beyond New York/Newark (Cleveland, Dallas/Fort Worth, Fort Lauderdale, Houston and Orlando).

“This agreement will offer Continental customers quicker and easier access to a dozen cities in Africa, as well as additional cities in Europe,” said Jim Compton, Continental’s Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. “We know that our customers will appreciate the increased travel options this partnership provides, as well as the high standards of service offered by Brussels Airlines.”

Because both Continental and Brussels Airlines are members of Star Alliance, members of Continental’s frequent flyer program, OnePass, and Brussels Airlines’ frequent flyer program, Miles & More, 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 travelling on a same-day Star Alliance member flight are also able to access Brussels Airlines Lounges at the flight’s departure city, while Brussels Airlines Business Class passengers and Miles & More 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.
