Northwest Announces Additional Service

Northwest Airlines today announced new seasonal Saturday-only nonstop
service between its hubs at Minneapolis/St. Paul and Memphis and
Charleston, S.C.

The new flights will operate once a week from March 6 through June 5, 2004.

“With these new seasonal flights, Northwest will provide travelers with
convenient connections from all three of our domestic hubs to destinations throughout the Midwest, the South and western United States and Canada,”
said Tom Bach, vice president of market planning and Airlink.

The new flights complement Northwest`s existing daily service between
Charleston and Detroit.

“We are very excited about the new flights being offered by Northwest to
Minneapolis/St. Paul and Memphis,” said Thomas G. Botchie, chairman of the
Charleston County Aviation Authority. “With these additional flights,
Charleston International will now have a total of 15 non-stops on our
schedule. This new service will offer our passengers many more options
throughout Northwest`s worldwide system.”


The new service will be operated with Northwest Airlink affiliate Pinnacle
Airlines Corp.`s 44-50-passenger Canadair Regional Jet (CRJ). 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.
