Continental Airlines and Aegean Airlines, the largest Greek carrier, on Monday announced plans to start codesharing on Continental’s flights between its New York hub at Newark Liberty International Airport and Athens.

In a statement, the companies said codeshare flights will also start 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 destinations in Greece -Thessaloniki, Heraklion, Rhodes, Mykonos, Santorini, Chania- and between Athens and Larnaca, Cyprus effective August 23, 2010.

Continental will also codeshare on Aegean flights between Athens and London/Heathrow, United Kingdom, and Munich and Frankfurt, Germany at a future date to be determined. Meanwhile, Aegean Airlines will place its “A3” code on Continental’s flights between New York/Newark (EWR) and Athens.

The companies said that pending government approval, Continental will also codeshare on Aegean flights between Athens and Paris/Charles de Gaulle, France, and Rome/Fiumicino, Italy.

Continental has been serving Athens since 2007. The airline’s flights to Newark are operated with Boeing 767-400ER aircraft with a total of 235 seats – 35 in business class cabin and 200 in economy.
