Continental to enter Star Alliance on Oct. 27 …

Posted on 18 August 2009

Continental Airlines said Monday that it will officially join the Star Alliance that includes United Airlines and Lufthansa on Oct. 27. The Transportation Department approved antitrust immunity for Continental last month to work closely with its new partners in setting prices and schedules on international service.


Continental’s transition from SkyTeam to Star Alliance was originally announced in June 2008.


The mileage balances of frequent fliers will not be affected by the transition.


OnePass members can continue to earn and redeem miles and make reward reservations on SkyTeam partners such as Delta and AirFrance through Oct. 24.
