Continental Airlines join Star Alliance

Posted by in airlines

Continental Airlines, who in June 2008 announced their plan to leave SkyTeam and join Star Alliance, got permission from U.S. Department of Transportation to do so.

“We want to make our transition from SkyTeam to the Star Alliance as customer-friendly as possible for both our customers and those of the SkyTeam alliance,” Continental CEO Larry Kellner said earlier this year. “We’ll be working hard with our partners at SkyTeam and our future partners at Star to make that happen.”

The move is happening later this year.
