Northwest Airlines

Founded in 1926, Northwest Airlines (formerly Northwest Airways) was one of the largest American passenger airlines. From its base in the midwest, it transported more passengers across the Pacific Ocean to Asia than any other American airline. It also carried travellers to Europe, mainly through its hub at Amsterdam.

However, Northwest Airlines was acquired by Delta Air Lines in 2008. While the merger was ongoing, Northwest aircraft continued to fly under their original name. In 2010, however, all Northwest routes were absorbed into Delta. With the combined routes of two major carriers, the merged airlines were the world's largest until 2013.

Today, Northwest Airlines is remembered as a pioneer in trans-Pacific aviation and as a major component of the world-spanning Delta Air Lines carrier network.
