New Hawaii Service

Mon Jul 19, 2004 11:56 pm

For Immediate Release
New daily flight from Portland, Ore., to Honolulu begins Dec. 15;
service between San Francisco and Honolulu resumes Dec. 15
MINNEAPOLIS – (July 1, 2004) – Northwest Airlines today announced that it will expand service to Hawaii with a new daily non-stop flight between Portland, Ore., and Honolulu, effective Dec. 15. In addition, service between San Francisco and Honolulu resumes the same day with one daily flight.
“Northwest Airlines is excited to expand its presence in Hawaii in time for the holiday season,” said Tom Bach, vice president of market planning and Airlink. “The new flight from Portland builds on our continued commitment to the Pacific Northwest. We are also pleased to resume service between San Francisco and Honolulu, a route last served in April 2001, due to stronger demand and availability of our new 757-300, an aircraft perfectly suited for the route. We will now serve Hawaii from four major West Coast cities as we continue to prudently build our network.” “These flights will complement our existing non-stop service between both Portland and San Francisco and Tokyo, and destinations throughout our Asia/Pacific network, by enabling customers to stop in Hawaii on their return for some rest and relaxation using
our current non-stop flights between Tokyo and Osaka and Honolulu,” added Fay Beauchine, vice president of sales and customer relations. Both flights will be operated with Boeing 757-300 aircraft seating 224 passengers, including 24 in first class. With these new flights, Northwest will offer service to Honolulu from six U.S. cities: Detroit (seasonal), Los Angeles, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Seattle, Portland and San Francisco. In addition, Northwest offers two daily flights between Honolulu and Northwest’s hub at Tokyo-Narita and one daily flight from Honolulu to Osaka, Japan on a seasonal basis. Customers also can earn Northwest WorldPerks miles on inter-island and South Pacific
flights on Northwest’s alliance partner, Hawaiian Airlines. The new flights will be open for sale on July 3 at www.nwa.com, through Northwest Airlines Reservations at 1-800-225-2525 or travel agencies. As a special introductory offer, NWA WorldVacations is offering $100 off any vacation package of $899 or more originating from Portland, San Francisco, or Los Angeles, booked July 5-Aug. 9, for travel anytime after Dec. 15, 2004.
