NWA Expands Wireless Access.

Northwest has expanded access to its wireless Web site with the addition of Nextel Online.
Nextel`s 1.7 million wireless customers will now be able to check the flight status and gate of their Northwest Airlines flight, request flight status paging, view their WorldPerks frequent flier account balance and change reservations from their cell phone, PDA or other WAP-enabled device.

With just one touch from the Northwest menu, Nextel Online subscribers can connect with Northwest Reservations.

The Northwest Airlines WAP site is located in the “Travel” category of the Nextel Online service.

Northwest also unveiled a series of packages designed to bolster online bookings through their Web site, including bonus miles and other special offers for frequent flyers.
