Northwest Airlines Corp. is offering passengers scheduled to fly Friday or Saturday the chance to rebook flights without penalty, due to a forecast of severe winter weather in the Midwest.
The policy, announced late Thursday, allows passengers with tickets on those days to shift the date of the ticket to anytime up until January 13. The storm is expected to bring snow to parts of Michigan.
Michigan's largest passenger air carrier is urging customers who want to rebook to do so online at their Web site.
Customers can also contact Northwest Reservations at 1-800-225-2525.
In addition, Northwest says passengers flying this weekend should check the status of their flights before they leave for the airport.
