Northwest Airlines Announces New Jet Service Between Detroit and Newburgh, N.Y.
Monday March 15, 11:30 am ET
Nonstop Jet Flights Begin June 10


DETROIT, March 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Northwest Airlines (Nasdaq: NWAC - News) today announced new daily nonstop service between its WorldGateway at Detroit hub and Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, N.Y. Three daily flights will be offered beginning June 10.

"Northwest Airlines welcomes Stewart International Airport, and the communities throughout the Hudson Valley, to its worldwide network," said Tom Bach, vice president of market planning and Airlink. "This new route will provide residents and visitors to this scenic region with convenient, hassle- free service to our award-winning hub and connections to cities throughout the United States, Japan and other major destinations in Asia."

Stewart International Airport is the 145th destination served from Northwest's efficient and passenger-friendly WorldGateway at Detroit.

"We have been pursuing Northwest Airlines for some time now, and are delighted to welcome them into our airport," said Kiran Jain, general manager, marketing and air service development at Stewart International Airport. "Northwest Airlines has a strong reputation for its customer service, on-time record and safety. Connecting or flying directly to a first-class hub like Detroit opens doors to endless destinations worldwide for residents of the Hudson Valley."

"I am extremely pleased that Northwest Airlines has recognized the benefits of serving one of America's fastest-growing airports," said U.S. Rep. Sue Kelly (R-N.Y.), whose congressional district includes Stewart International Airport. "This is a great move for our area and perfect timing for the busy summer travel season. I applaud Northwest's decision and congratulate all of those in the Hudson Valley who have consistently worked to make Stewart Airport a catalyst for economic growth in our region."

The new flights complement Northwest's existing service to Westchester County Airport. Northwest offers four daily flights between Westchester County and Detroit and two daily flights between Westchester County and its hub at Minneapolis-St. Paul. In New York State, Northwest and its Northwest Airlink partners also serve New York City's LaGuardia and J.F. Kennedy International airports, Albany, Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo, Elmira and Binghamton.

Service to Stewart International Airport 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.

The daily flights are now open for sale at www.nwa.com , Northwest Airlines Reservations at 1-800-225-2525 or through travel agencies.

EXCELLENT! This might be another option for me visiting my family in Westchester County, if it's priced competitively.

The travel agency I work at has a corporate account that sends employees to the Newburgh area 3 or 4 times a year. Lately, they have had to take USAirways to PHL and make a connection to SWF. When I called them today to tell them about the new NW nonstop service, they were overjoyed.

I think NWA will do extremely well with this route.

Thank you Northwest.

Always nice to see a new station open up....

I always wondered why we never served SWF before, considering we serve smaller markets in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic than this. I could definetely see ARJ's on this route, if not DC-9's in the future. I would think the demand for 70 seaters and/or an F product might be necessary there.

Yeah, I was surprised to see PCL get the 2800's for flights. Doesn't make much sense..

XJ has 2700's, 2900's, 3000's, 3100's, 3200's, 3300's, 3400's, and 3500's

Why they give you guys the 28's, just makes it more confusing. It was always easy to tell that PCL was the 37's and up. Wouldn't just have been easier to give you all the 5xxx series flights??

Well guys, since you started it...

9E flights are 28__ flight numbers now? Right now we use 37__, 56,57,58 and 59__ numbers

XJ flights are XJ has 2700's, 2900's, 3000's, 3100's, 3200's, 3300's, 3400's, and 3500's

How can an NWA customer (me Big grin ) tell he is flying NW mainland by the flight #?

KL operated NW flight#?

CO operated NW flight#?

What you wrote above suggests there is some order to it...

Thanks

Thank goodness! We could use a little more variety at SWF. Especially those of us who are OnePass members and are looking for something other than DL via CVG. It will be nice to have this second option.

I know that on CO, all NW operated code-shares are in the 6000-7000 range.

XJ flights in the 3000s are operated with Saab 340s; in the 5000 range are operated with ARJs, in my experience. I could be wrong.



Up, up and away!

These are approximates....there has been some shifting around to accomidate the Delta Codeshare, hence why Pinnacle was given the 2800's from Mesaba since there wasn't much else left
