Northwest gets green light for Delta codeshare

Northwest Airlines has announced government approval to expand its codeshare flights with Delta on all Northwest trans-Pacific flights. Northwest will also add Delta to three of Northwest’s Narita-Asia routes. Effective for travel beginning August 30th, 2008, expanded Northwest and Delta codeshare markets include trans-Pacific travel from Detroit, Minneapolis/St. Paul and Honolulu. The expanded codeshare markets will augment existing trans-Pacific codeshare flights from Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

“These additional codeshare flights will expand travel opportunities for Northwest and Delta customers,” said Laura Liu, senior vice president international.
