Continental, Aegean Announce Codeshare

Star Alliance partners Continental Airlines and Aegean Airlines have announced plans to start 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 will place 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. In the future, Continental will also codeshare on Aegean flights between Athens and London/Heathrow in the United Kingdom and Munich and Frankfurt in Germany. Pending government approval, Continental will also codeshare on Aegean flights between Athens and Paris/Charles de Gaulle and Rome/Fiumicino.

Also effective August 23, Aegean Airlines will place 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.
