Northwest Airlines Expands PASSUR Contract

6th Jan 2004

Megadata Corporation (BULLETIN BOARD: MDTA) announced today that Northwest
Airlines has contracted for PASSUR(TM) FlightPerform(TM) software at
additional locations in its network.

“We have found PASSUR FlightPerform to be an important part of our plan
for rapid, more profitable growth. Based on our current experience using
FlightPerform at two of our major hubs, we`re planning expansion to
additional locations,” stated Lorne Cass, Director of Dispatch. “Knowing
the exact position and time of landing of our flights more than 100 miles
out from the airport allows our stations and air traffic coordinators to
better serve our passengers with timely and accurate decisions—
resulting in fewer diversions, arrivals that almost never wait for gate
space, and better hold or release decisions for connections. We consider
the PASSUR tools to be a standard part of our operations.”

“Northwest Airlines was an early adopter of our technology and continually
challenges us for enhancements that better serve their customers—
they`re a terrific partner,” stated Jim Barry, Megadata President and CEO.
FlightPerform software provides irregular operations management and
cost-control through high resolution graphical flight positioning, the
most accurate independent ETAs, and decision support tools. FlightPerform
is supported by the network of PASSUR installations; the only nationally
deployed, independent flight tracking and information system.
