Delta completes deal to acquire Northwest Airlines

NEW YORK (AP) - Delta Air Lines has completed its $2.8 billion
deal to acquire Northwest Airlines, creating the world's biggest
carrier.

The announcement late Wednesday marked a swift conclusion to the
deal. Earlier in the day, the Justice Department granted antitrust
approval, and a lawyer for 28 air travelers who had sued to block
the deal said the parties had settled the case.

The new Delta will be headquartered in Atlanta, and Delta chief
Richard Anderson will head the combined carrier, which will
integrate over the next 18 months.
