Multnomah Prof Plays Role In First Non-Stop Flight From Portland to Europe

3/21/2005

Due to the efforts of Dr. Daniel Scalberg and other organization representatives, Lufthansa German Airlines has established the first ever non-stop flight for regular service passage from Portland to Europe. Dr. Scalberg, chair of the History department at Multnomah Bible College, was invited to the World Affairs Council of Oregon banquet on February 8 as a guest of Lufthansa.

Dr. Scalberg and his wife took part in banquet festivities in honor of Jose Maria Aznar, Prime Minister of Spain, including an introduction to the Prime Minster and Lufthansa officials, Prime Minister Aznar's address, high dinner, and complimentary book signing.

Dr. Scalberg received the invitation from Lufthansa German Airlines in thanks for his promotion of Lufthansa as carrier of choice for the Multnomah Bible College History department study abroad programs. Dr. Scalberg departed on March 19, 2005, utilizing the new non-stop passage to escort a group of ten college students in partial fulfillment of study abroad course requirements.

The World Affairs Council is a non-profit educational organization whose purpose is to broaden public understanding of world affairs, to enhance international education in schools and colleges, to promote professional exchanges with other countries, and to serve as a community resource on international affairs.
