Continental Airlines to Join Star Alliance on October 27

Continental Airlines has announced that it should join Star Alliance on October 27, 2009. Continental will end its participation in SkyTeam after its last scheduled flight on Oct. 24, 2009.

Continental’s transition from SkyTeam to Star Alliance is a strategic change, originally announced in June 2008.

Continental’s OnePass members do not need to make any changes to their OnePass accounts and will continue to utilize their mileage as normal. Mileage balances will not be affected by the transition.

Through Oct. 24, 2009, OnePass members can continue to earn and redeem miles and make reward reservations on SkyTeam partners.

When the transition to Star Alliance occurs on Oct. 27, 2009, OnePass members will begin earning base miles and Elite Qualification Miles/Points and be able to redeem miles on Star Alliance airlines.
