The History of Northwest Orient AirlinesThe History of Northwest Orient Airlines

“Northwest Orient Airlines” - David Lednicer October 14 at 7 p.m. and October 17 at noon Northwest Orient Airlines began as a mail carrier from Chicago to Minneapolis. The name comes from the US Northwest Territories, “northwest” only in the sense that they were north and west of the east coast. NWA’s first long-haul route linked Minneapolis to Seattle. The word “Orient” was added when NWA established northern Pacific routes shortly after the end of WWII. Come hear David Lednicer relay how a fledgling Midwest mail carrier evolved into a major international carrier.
