FRAMINGHAM (03/17/2000) - Northwest Airlines Inc. data has taken to the air with a slimmed-down version of the Northwest Web page, offering travelers the ability to check flight arrival and departure information over Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) phones.
The service will also allow travelers to receive real-time departure and arrival information as well as check their frequent-flyer mileage.
Al Lenza, Northwest's vice president for distribution planning, said the airline decided to offer the service because "information is only valuable if it's timely and deliverable. . . . One-touch access to Northwest reservations means less hassle, less wasted time and more time taking care of business.''
