NORTHWEST AIRLINK TO BEGIN SERVICE BETWEEN ROANOKE AND DETROIT

 NORTHWEST AIRLINK TO BEGIN SERVICE BETWEEN ROANOKE AND DETROIT
 MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL, May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Northwest Airlink today announced it will begin daily service between Roanoke Regional Airport and Detroit effective Aug. 1, 1992. Northwest Airlink is the regional airline partner of Northwest Airlines and is operated by Mesaba Aviation.
 The three daily round-trip flights will connect Roanoke, Va. with a significant traffic center operated at Detroit by Northwest and Northwest Airlink.
 Detroit is Northwest and Northwest Airlink's largest traffic center with 380 daily non-stop departures to many domestic destinations, Canada, Europe and Asia.
 "Northwest Airlink will substantially improve the options passengers have to travel between the Roanoke area 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 Roanoke at 6:50 a.m., 12:35 p.m., and 6:55 p.m., and arrive at Detroit at 8:35 a.m., 2:20 p.m., and 8:40 p.m., respectively. Return service will leave Detroit at 10:25 a.m., 4:35 p.m., and 9:40 p.m., and arrive in Roanoke at 12:10 p.m., 6:20 p.m., and 11:25 p.m., respectively.
 All of the 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, 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.
 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. Roanoke will be the 42nd 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.
