Northwest Airlines Suspends/Cancels Three International Flights

Citing record-breaking oil costs at $140 per barrel, as well as a decrease in customer demand, Northwest Airlines and its transatlantic joint venture partner KLM Royal Dutch Airlines are suspending one international flight route and canceling two others, Businesswire.com reports. Beginning October 1, flights between Minneapolis/St. Paul-Paris are suspended until March 28, 2009 and flights between Detroit-Dusseldorf and Hartford-Amsterdam will be canceled.

Clients with advance bookings for these flights will be offered alternate NWA or SkyTeam alliance flight re-accommodations. Selective frequency reductions and aircraft type changes may be implemented on additional transatlantic flights, depending on oil prices and ongoing customer demand.
