Northwest has offered support to the Virginia Tech community by offering to provide complimentary airfare through May 1 on Northwest or Northwest Airlink flights to the immediate family members of those Virginia Tech students and faculty who were injured (or who died) as a result of the tragic incident on Monday. The offer enables family members to come to the Virginia Tech campus area to be with their loved ones. Family members eligible for complimentary travel include parents, siblings and children.
Northwest is also waiving advance purchase restrictions for students who wish to return home.
Northwest has worked with Virginia Tech to establish a dedicated toll-free reservations number to assist these family members.
Bravo to all airlines who do stuff like this.
