NORTHWEST AIRLINK TO BEGIN SERVICE BETWEEN HUNTINGTON AND DETROIT

 NORTHWEST AIRLINK TO BEGIN SERVICE BETWEEN HUNTINGTON AND DETROIT
 MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Northwest Airlink today announced it will begin daily service between Tri-State Airport and Detroit effective July 15, 1992. Tri-State Airport is located in Huntington, W.Va., and is convenient for the Ashland, Ky. area as well as part of Southern Ohio.
 Northwest Airlink is the regional airline partner of Northwest Airlines and is operated by Mesaba Aviation.
 The three daily round-trip flights will connect Huntington with a significant traffic center operated at Detroit by Northwest and Northwest Airlink.
 Detroit is Northwest and Northwest Airlink's largest traffic center with 350 daily non-stop departures to many domestic destinations, Canada, Europe and Asia.
 "Northwest Airlink will substantially improve the options passengers have to travel between Huntington and the rest of the world," said Jeffrey B. Jones, director of market planning for Mesaba. "We expect travelers will find our connections particularly attractive to the Upper Midwest, West, Canada and overseas."
 The new flights will depart Huntington at 7 a.m., 10:55 a.m., and 4:35 p.m., and arrive at Detroit at 8:30 a.m., 12:20 p.m. and 6 p.m., respectively. Return service will leave Detroit at 9:10 a.m., 1:50 p.m., and 8:55 p.m., and arrive in Huntington in 10:30 a.m., 3:15 p.m. and 10:20 p.m., respectively.
 Two of the three round-trip flights will be provided with the airline's new 37-seat de Havilland Dash 8-100 aircraft. The Dash 8 is widely used in the regional airline industry and is a favorite among passengers due to its wide body and jet-like interior. The pressurized aircraft features stand-up headroom of more than six feet four inches, a lavatory, inflight service, low interior noise levels and generous storage space for carry-on luggage.
 The third round trip will be provided with the airline's Fairchild Metro III. This aircraft offers a pressurized, comfortable service to passengers. It cruises at speeds of 300 miles per hour and carries 19 passengers.
 Mesaba operates as Northwest Airlink under a marketing agreement with Northwest Airlines. As part of that agreement, the two airlines coordinate flight schedules, fares and marketing programs. Passengers flying on Northwest Airlink receive one-stop baggage check-in, advance seating assignments, boarding passes and earn mileage credit in WORLDPERKS, Northwest's free travel program. Huntington will be the 41st city on Mesaba's route system.
 Northwest Airlines is the world's fifth-largest airline and with its Northwest Airlink partners serves more than 200 cities in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia and Australia.
