NWA is the First US Airline to be Displayed on AvantGo

Northwest Airlines (Nasdaq: NWAC - news) and AvantGo Inc., a mobile Internet company, today announced the availability of real-time access to Northwest Airlines' flight and gate status, WorldPerks mileage balance information, the ability to view travel reservations, download timetables, and check current weather conditions, from AvantGo's ``Travel'' channel.

``Northwest is continuing to lead the way in putting technology in the hands of consumers to make their travel easier than ever,'' said Al Lenza, Northwest Vice President of Distribution and E-Commerce. ``We know from our experience with AvantGo and other information distribution channels that customers increasingly demand these services.''

The new partnership will allow mobile device users, including Palm OS and Windows CE-based devices, to access Northwest Airlines information wirelessly in real-time and offline via desktop synchronization. Users can visit http://www.avantgo.com to sign up for the free mobile Internet service.
