Northwest Announce New Service Between Minneapolisand Syracuse

Northwest Airlines today announced new daily nonstop service between its
hub at Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport and Syracuse, N.Y. Two
daily flights will be offered beginning July 12.
“We welcome Syracuse as the 164th nonstop destination served from our hub
at Minneapolis/St. Paul,” said Tom Bach, vice president of market planning
and Airlink. “These new flights, together with existing service between
Syracuse and the Northwest WorldGateway at Detroit hub, will provide
central New York with an even broader array of destinations throughout the
United States, Canada and Asia.”

Northwest currently serves Syracuse with four daily flights to Detroit.

“Syracuse remains a strong business market for air service,” said Mayor
Matthew J. Driscoll. “This new Northwest nonstop service to
Minneapolis/St. Paul will enhance both leisure and business connections to
points farther west. This demonstrates that demand for air service in
Syracuse, and our efforts to improve air service, are getting results.”

The new service will be operated with Northwest Airlink partner Pinnacle
Airlines Corp.‘s 44- or 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.
