No press release yet, probably just uploaded last night, but beginning with the summer schedule, NW will offer summer seasonal, Saturday only service from MSP-PLN operated by Mesaba Airlines Saab 340 service. The return from PLN will leave Sunday morning.
Beginning June 11th: (Sat only)
NW 3170 MSP-PLN Depart: 6:52pm Arrive: 9:40pm Saab 340
Beginning June 12th (Sun. only)
NW 3171 PLN-MSP Depart: 9:35am Arrive: 10:23am Saab 340
This is on top of expanded service this summer on the regular DTW-PLN flights. More Avro flights, up to 2 daily flights on top of the CRJ's and Saabs during peak season. This market has become extremely sucessful for NW in recent years, going from only Saab service, to numerous CRJ's and now Avro's. Very seasonal, none the less, as during the dead of winter service drops to 4 Saabs to DTW. This also means there will be 3 RON aircraft in PLN on Sat nights.
