Continental and Brussels Airline begin code-sharing agreement


Transatlantic flights may have just become a little easier and more comfortable, thanks to a new code-sharing agreement that is taking effect this month.

Continental and Brussels Airline are starting a new code sharing service on August 9, which means that Continental's CO code will be added on selected services between Brussels and various cities in Europe.

The agreement also means that Brussels Airlines it will place its code on Continental’s daily flights to New York and other US destinations.

“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, executive vice president of Continental. “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.”

Both airlines are part of Star Alliance, which is known for luxurious premier class travel options. Continental’s BusinessFirst Class recently introduced its first fully-flat bed, which allows passengers the opportunity to spread out on a 6’6’’ long seat.ADNFCR-3467-ID-19921771-ADNFCR
