Northwest Airlines announced today new service between Minneapolis/St. Paul and Manchester, N.H., beginning June 6, 2003.
The new twice-daily Minneapolis/St. Paul-Manchester service will be operated with an Airbus A319 aircraft as well as a 50-passenger Canadair Regional Jet (CRJ).
The A319 features the widest cabin in its class with seating for 16 in first class and 108 in economy class. The CRJ features a spacious cabin with comfortable two-by-two leather seating and other cabin amenities similar to larger jets, such as overhead bins, a galley, lavatory, and an efficient climate control system to ensure passenger comfort. Both aircraft will use jetbridges when connecting in Minneapolis.
The flights from Manchester to Minneapolis/St. Paul are scheduled to allow for convenient, one-stop connections to more than 25 destinations that previously required two stops in addition to the hundreds of other non-stop destinations served by Northwest worldwide. The new service will complement Northwest’s existing four daily flights between Detroit and Manchester.
“We at Northwest are pleased to begin offering this nonstop service between Minneapolis/St. Paul and Manchester, and hope that both business and pleasure travelers will find the service convenient and useful,” said Jim Cron, vice president market planning and Airlink.
The new CRJ service will be offered by Northwest’s Airlink affiliate, Pinnacle Airlines, Inc.
The daily jet flights are open for sale through www.nwa.com, Northwest Airlines Reservations at 1-800-225-2525 or through travel agencies.
