Northwest on Thursday announced the starting dates of service operated by the A330-200, its newest aircraft type, between Tokyo and three destinations along the U.S. West Coast and four destinations in the Asia/Pacific region.
"The introduction of A330 service in these markets allows Northwest to offer travelers a new level of in-flight comfort that exceeds what's offered by our U.S. competitors and many of our international rivals," said Phil Haan, EVP-international, sales and information services.
The start of service from Tokyo is timed in conjunction with the delivery of seven new A330-200 aircraft the airline will begin receiving this summer.
