Detroit-Dusseldorf nonstop service launched by Northwest

June 7, 2007


Northwest Airlines (NYSE:NWA) has announced that, in cooperation with its joint venture partner KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, it has launched a nonstop service between Northwest's WorldGateway at Detroit hub and Dusseldorf, Germany.

The airline said that Flight 94 departed from Detroit at 21:15 on 5 June and arrived in Dusseldorf at 11:33 local time today (6 June).

The new nonstop Detroit-Dusseldorf service will initially operate five days per week and from 15 June it will be operated on a daily basis.

The route is reportedly being flown with modified Boeing 757-200 aircraft that have been fitted with winglets, or extensions of the aircraft wing that are designed to maximise fuel efficiency and increase range.

Northwest also said that from 15 June it will operate a nonstop Detroit-Brussels service, increasing the number of European destinations served by the carrier from its WorldGateway at Detroit to six.

On 1 July Northwest/KLM will also add a nonstop service between Hartford, Connecticut and Amsterdam, and additional flights on the Detroit-Amsterdam and Boston-Amsterdam routes.
