Delta Air Lines, CSA Czech Airlines Seek DOT Approval For Codeshare Service to Central and Eastern European Destinations

Friday, October 27, 2000 07:01 AM

ATLANTA, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines and CSA Czech Airlines today announced they will file an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation seeking authorization to codeshare on flights between the U.S. and the Czech Republic March 25, 2001. The two carriers have signed a commercial agreement that mainly includes codesharing on routes to Central and Eastern European destinations.

Delta said it plans to begin codeshare flights next summer between New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport and Prague and between Newark and Prague on CSA's Airbus 310 aircraft. Delta said it also would codeshare on CSA flights between Prague and Paris, Amsterdam, Manchester, Brussels, Frankfurt, Dublin and Lyon.

In addition, Delta plans to codeshare on CSA flights via Prague to Budapest, Hungary; Vienna, Austria; Warsaw, Poland; Zagreb, Croatia; Larnaca, Cyprus; Brno and Ostrava, Czech Republic; Riga, Latvia; Bratislava and Kosice, Slovakia; and Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

CSA said it plans to begin codeshare flights next summer from New York to nine U.S. destinations, including Washington (Reagan National), Denver, Los Angeles, Boston, Atlanta, San Francisco, Cincinnati, Seattle and Dallas.

Earlier this month the SkyTeam alliance of Aeromexico, Air France, Delta and Korean Air announced that CSA Czech Airlines would join the SkyTeam alliance in 2001.

SkyTeam member Air France presently has an agreement with CSA Czech Airlines to codeshare on flights between Prague and Paris' Charles de Gaulle International Airport, the only sizeable European hub airport that can expand meaningfully in the coming years.

Members of Delta's SkyMiles program will earn mileage credit when traveling on Delta's codeshare flights with CSA/Czech Airlines. Members of CSA Czech Airlines' OK Plus frequent flyer program will earn mileage credit when traveling on CSA/Czech Airlines' codeshare flight operated by Delta. CSA Czech Airlines is expected to be a SkyMiles partner later this year and to join the SkyTeam alliance by April 2001.

CSA Czech Airlines, founded in 1923, is the largest scheduled airline in the Czech Republic. The carrier has a modern fleet of 28 aircraft with an average aircraft age of five years and provides service to 62 destinations in Europe, North Africa, North America and the Middle East.

Air France, operating a network of 198 destinations in 83 countries (excluding codeshare flights), is well established in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia as well as in the Americas. Air France offers more flights than any other carrier in the French market.

Delta's goal is to become the #1 airline in the eyes of its customers, flying passengers and cargo from anywhere to everywhere. Passengers already choose to fly Delta more often than any other airline in the world on 5,244 flights each day to 339 cities in 48 countries on Delta, Delta Express, Delta Shuttle, the Delta Connection carriers, and Delta's Worldwide Partners. Delta is a founding member of SkyTeam, a global airline alliance which provides customers with extensive worldwide destinations, flights and services.
