Northwest Airlink was the name of Northwest Airlines’ regional service, operating from hubs to small and medium-sized cities. Growing up in Michigan, NWA CRJ-200s were a common sight at my local airport. These flights connected to Detroit (KDTW) and Minneapolis-St. Paul (KMSP), both major Northwest hubs.
Detroit Hub (KDTW)
Minneapolis-St. Paul Hub (KMSP)
With all the excitement surrounding Infinite Flight 18.4, I located some Northwest Airlink schedules from the past. I used the information to create route maps for both Midwest hubs. Hopefully, this will be helpful to those fans of the CRJ-200 wishing to recreate regional flights in the livery of this classic airline.
