Entebbe to become new codeshare destination for Continental


UGANDA (eTN) – Brussels Airlines and Continental – which recently merged with United to create another global aviation giant – have signed a full codeshare agreement to cover flights between Newark, New York and Brussels and also for flights beyond on both sides of the Atlantic. Both carriers have been working closely together in the past, but the formal agreement to codeshare will be a bonus for travelers of both airlines, as they can enjoy more perks and most important, more destinations.

Entebbe, and also the other East African Brussels Airlines’ destinations like Nairobi, Kigali, and Bujumbura, will now appear in the Continental schedule, and the flights will, as before, be operated by Brussels Airlines, now flying 6 times a week into the region and soon, it is understood, going daily between Europe’s capital city and East Africa.

In addition, Brussels Airlines will be able to offer initially 5 added destinations via EWR to such cities as Orlando; Ft. Lauderdale; Houston; Dallas, Ft. Worth; and Cleveland, while Continental will add 9 European cities and eight West Africa destinations served by SN to their schedule.
