25th Anniversary of Passenger Service to Europe Marked

Northwest marks the 25th anniversary of its first passenger flight to Europe on Wednesday. On March 31, 1979, the airline's first flight to Europe (utilizing a Boeing 747-200 aircraft) departed Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport, made stops at Detroit and New York, and then continued on to Copenhagen, Denmark and Stockholm, Sweden.

Northwest cargo service to Europe began Feb. 9, 1979 from New York and Boston to Glasgow, Scotland.

Northwest's current European service, in association with KLM, now includes daily flights from Detroit to Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, Paris and Rome (summer seasonal service to Rome). Daily service from Minneapolis/St. Paul is available to Amsterdam and London. Northwest/KLM also offer frequent service to Amsterdam from their gateways at Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Memphis, Tenn., Mexico City, Miami, Montreal, Newark, N.J., New York (JFK), San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, Vancouver, British Columbia, and Washington.

Customers also are enjoying more reach to all of Europe, India, the Middle East, Africa, as well as Asia as a result of Northwest's alliance with KLM.

A330 Now Used on Detroit-Paris Route

Northwest begins utilizing the A330-300 aircraft on the Detroit-Paris route beginning March 31, coinciding with the 25th anniversary of European service. The return flight will be operated April 1, also with the A330.

In addition to the Detroit-Amsterdam route, Northwest began using the A330 on the Detroit-Frankfurt route in October 2003.
