US Helicopter and Continental Airlines launch Codeshare

Travel News Asia Wednesday, 13 June 2007

To further simplify the booking and ticketing experience, US Helicopter Corporation and Continental Airlines have signed a codeshare agreement to expedite the process for customers connecting between two New York City heliports and Continentals flights at its New York hub at Newark Liberty International Airport.

Effective immediately, Continental has placed its code (CO*) on US Helicopter flights that operate between the Downtown Manhattan or the Atlantic Metroport at East 34th Street and connect to Continentals international BusinessFirst flights at New York Liberty.

Codesharing improves airline service by simplifying the booking process with electronic ticketing and communication of itinerary information between the two companies, said Mark Erwin, Continentals senior vice president Asia Pacific and corporate development. Customers traveling on connecting itineraries are able to have single check-in for all flights, including the issuance of boarding passes and baggage checked through to their final destination.

Codeshare itineraries are eligible for check in on Continental's website, airport kiosks or with a US Helicopter or Continental Airlines ticket agent. Members of Continentals frequent flyer program also earn 500 OnePass miles when traveling on codeshare flights operated by US Helicopter. 

US Helicopter and Continental continue to stand out by working together on program benefits that maximize our Eight Minute Airport Shuttle service for time-sensitive global business travelers, said Jerry Murphy, chief executive officer and president of US Helicopter. Now, we not only offer a hassle-free airport commute, but also simple methods of booking travel as well.

US Helicopter and Continental Airlines have partnered to provide eight-minute shuttle service between Manhattan and New York Liberty since December 2006. US Helicopter customers traveling on Continental flights complete security screening at the heliport allowing customers to proceed directly to their departure gate at New York Liberty.

A one-way ticket aboard US Helicopter starts at $159, plus applicable security fees.  US Helicopters flights between New York Liberty and two New York City heliports operate from 7:15 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Monday to Friday except public holidays.
