Continental Airlines (Houston) and LOT Polish Airlines (Warsaw), both Star Alliance members, yesterday (April 4) announced they have started code sharing on flights between select destinations in the United States and Europe.
Effective April 2, 2011, Continental is placing its “CO” code on LOT’s trans-Atlantic flights between Continental’s New York hub, Newark Liberty International Airport, and LOT’s Warsaw hub, as well as on LOT-operated flights linking Warsaw with London/Heathrow, Frankfurt and Amsterdam that connect with Continental flights between those airports and New York/Newark.
Subject to government approval, Continental will also place its code on LOT-operated flights between Warsaw and Paris/Charles de Gaulle that connect with Continental’s New York/Newark-Paris flights.
Additionally, LOT is placing its “LO” code on Continental-operated flights between New York/Newark and Boston, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando, San Francisco and Washington/Dulles that connect with LOT’s trans-Atlantic flights between Warsaw and New York/Newark.
