Continental Airlines and Brussels Airlines have signed a codeshare agreement on Continental’s transatlantic flights between New York and Brussels. From 9 August, Continental will place its CO code on selected Brussels-operated flights to Bologna, Bristol, Heathrow, Newcastle, Hanover, Lyons, Marseilles, Paris and Toulouse. Selected flights between Brussels and 12 cities in Africa will also use the CO code. In addition, Brussels Airlines’ SN code will be used on Continental’s daily flights between Brussels and Newark Liberty International Airport, as well as some operations to Cleveland, Dallas, 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 Continental’s Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Jim Compton. “Thanks to this new partnership with Continental Airlines we can now offer our passengers a great travel solution to New York via the very convenient Newark airport and to several other important U.S. destinations currently lacking in our network offer,” said Brussels Airlines’ Executive Vice President Network and Strategy, Erik Follet.
