Continental Airlines and Brussels Airlines on Wednesday announced plans to start codesharing on Continental’s trans-Atlantic flights between New York and Brussels, as well as on selected flights operated by Brussels.

Effective August 9, 2010, Continental will place its “CO*” code on selected Brussels Airlines-operated flights between Brussels and nine cities in Europe, including Bologna, Italy; Bristol, London/Heathrow and Newcastle, United Kingdom; Hanover, Germany; and Lyons, Marseilles, Paris/Charles de Gaulle and Toulouse, France.

Continental also will place its code between Brussels and 12 cities in Africa, including Accra, Ghana; Banjul, Gambia; Bujumbura, Burundi; Cotonou, Benin; Dakar, Senegal; Douala and Yaounde, Cameroon; Entebbe, Uganda; Kigali, Rwanda; Monrovia, Liberia; Nairobi, Kenya; and Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

At the same time, Brussels Airlines will place its “SN*” code on Continental’s daily flights between Brussels and its New York hub, Newark Liberty International Airport, as well as on selected flights to five U.S. destinations operated by Continental beyond New York/Newark, including Cleveland, Dallas/Fort Worth, Fort Lauderdale, Houston and Orlando.

Members of Continental’s frequent flyer program, OnePass, and Brussels Airlines’ frequent flyer program, Miles & More, are able to earn and redeem mileage anywhere on either airline’s global route network.
