Delta replacing Northwest brand at airport
ST. PAUL — There’s change in the air at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines acquired Northwest Airlines last year to become the world’s biggest airline operator.
Now Delta is rebranding check-in stations and baggage-claim areas throughout the Lindbergh Terminal at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Nearly everything that said "Northwest" will be changed to "Delta."
The efforts are expected to continue all week.
Delta has already rebranded 33 planes and 119 airports. It expects to have all U.S. airports transformed by the end of the year.
One benefit to travelers will be in the snacks. Delta dropped snacks long ago to save money. But people who fly on Northwest will get their choice of free peanuts or cookies.
