Northwest Airlines information is now available to subscribers of OmniSky's wireless e-mail and Internet service under a new partnership. It marks the first offering of real-time NWA.com content for personal digital assistant users delivered by a wireless service provider, the company said.


OmniSky users can check flight and gate status, review WorldPerks mileage balance, view travel reservations and download timetables. They also can obtain current weather conditions and download airport maps, as well as take advantage of Cybersavers fares.


"Wireless access to travel-related services represents a significant area of growth and an important driver of service usage for OmniSky," said Chris Weasler, OmniSky's senior director of interactive services. "We are pleased to welcome Northwest Airlines as a content partner to help our busy subscribers stay on schedule and remain productive while traveling."


NWA's Web site, www.nwa.com, offers information on all wireless products. Wireless access to NWA also is obtainable in the travel sections of Sprint PCS Wireless Web, AT&T Digital PocketNet and AvantGo.


Northwest Airlines is the fourth-largest airline worldwide.
