Northwest Airlink is the product name. The airlines that operate as Northwest Airlink include Mesaba and Express 1 (which NW owns). Pacific Island Aviation, based in Guam, is also a Northwest Airlink. The words Northwest Airlink usually are painted on the fuselage of these carriers.

Northwest recently ordered 75 44 seat versions of the CRJ-200 for its regionals Mesaba and Express Airlines. This is in addition to the 50 that Express Airlines 1 has of the 50 seat version of the CRJ200 or will have from a previous order. Northwest also has another 175 on option.
Deliveries of the 44 seat version are to take place in 2002

Right now Express I operates all the 50 seaters. As for the 44 seaters I believe we will get the first batch at least, as it would be tough to impossible for Mesaba to set up evereything that would be required. We had 2 years and it was tough to get everything ready for the CRJs now, the first 44 seaters are due in just over a year from now. With all the orders I suspect they will be divided up alongest Mesaba and EXpress I. We are really the major Airlinks while the others are independents that NWA codesharse with in certain areas. Bigsky is another US commuter we code share with.
