Continental Airlines (NYSE: CAL) today announced codeshare cooperation with TAM Airlines (Bovespa: TAMM4 and NYSE: TAM) on routes within Brazil and between Brazil and the U.S. beginning July 1, 2010.
This cooperation builds on the reciprocal frequent flyer program agreement signed on April 6 between Continental Airlines and TAM and supports Continental’s growth in the Brazilian market. Both airlines are members of Star Alliance, the first truly global airline alliance to offer worldwide reach, recognition and seamless service to the international traveler.
"Codesharing between Continental and TAM Airlines improves the link we established between the two airlines before TAM joined Star Alliance," said John Slater, Continental’s staff vice president Latin America and the Caribbean. "We look forward to growing our relationship with TAM in the near future."
"We are expanding our international network through this new stage of our partnership with Continental. Through the agreement, we are able to offer more convenience and better services to our customers," stated TAM Airlines commercial and planning vice president, Paulo Castello Branco.
