Bizjournals.com: Northwest expanding European service
Northwest Airlines is expanding its European flight network with new service to Brussels, Belgium, and Dusseldorf, Germany.
The airline said Wednesday it will begin flights between Detroit and Brussels on May 7. Service from Detroit to Dusseldorf begins June 5.
Northwest also said that beginning July 1, it will begin offering nonstop service to Amsterdam from Hartford, Conn. It will be Hartford's only nonstop trans-Atlantic service.
Not in its international expansion plans: the Twin Cities. Northwest flies nonstop to London and Amsterdam from the Twin Cities, but none of the new flights will originate here. Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport officials want to see more international service here to serve business travelers.
