NATIONAL INTERRENT TO OFFER BONUS MILES ON KLM FLIGHTS

 MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- National Car Rental/Interrent's frequent flyer relationship with Northwest Airlines has been expanded to include WorldPerks bonus miles for National rentals in conjunction with flights on KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.
 Effective Jan. 1, 1994, Northwest WorldPerks members earn 500 National bonus miles for each qualifying KLM flight in conjunction with an Interrent rental, domestic or international. Interrent, the world's largest car rental system, includes Europcar Interrent, Tilden Interrent in Canada, and Nippon Interrent in Japan, and of course, National Interrent.
 "As a global company, we need to take every opportunity to strengthen our global airline connection," said Geoff Corbett, National's executive vice president of sales and marketing. "Our 10-year plus relationship with Northwest Airlines opened this door, and once again our customers get more mileage from the partnership, as they have for years. National was the first car rental company in the WorldPerks program, and we are pleased to work with the Northwest and KLM alliance."
 KLM ranks sixth in terms of international traffic among more than 150 IATA airlines. The airline's home base, Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport, is consistently voted "Europe's best airport," and is considered a true gateway to Europe based on its prime location. KLM serves over 150 cities in 81 countries on six continents through Amsterdam, from eleven U.S. gateways -- Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Orlando, San
Francisco, and Washington, D.C. KLM also provides code-share service with Northwest to 47 U.S. cities.
 "We are pleased to offer our WorldPerks members yet another way to earn miles," said Don Schmitt, director of WorldPerks marketing at Northwest. "For over two and a half years, members have been able to earn WorldPerks miles on flights to over 150 worldwide destinations served by our global partner KLM. Now they can also earn National bonus miles when they rent a car in conjunction with a KLM flight to many of those same cities."
 National Interrent features General Motors Vehicles, and services over 5,000 locations in 130 countries worldwide with system members Tilden Interrent, Europcar Interrent, and Nippon Interrent.
