Continental and Delta Launch Interline eTicketing

HOUSTON, April 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/—Continental Airlines (NYSE: CAL) today announced that it has implemented interline electronic ticketing with Delta Air Lines, allowing customers to use a single electronic ticket when their itineraries include travel on both carriers.
Delta joins the growing list of successful interline electronic ticketing agreements Continental has with American, Northwest, United, US Airways, Alaska Airlines, America West and Aloha.
Customers benefit from interline electronic ticketing as it eliminates the need to obtain a paper ticket when transferring from one airline to another. Interline electronic ticketing bridges the two different airline computer reservation systems, allowing access to electronically stored itineraries.
“Our customers overwhelmingly prefer the convenience of eTickets,” said Janet Wejman, Continental`s senior vice president and chief information officer. “This agreement makes it easier to use eTickets for itineraries that include travel on both carriers.”
