NORTHWEST AIRLINES SETS SUMMER FARE SALE

 MINNEAPOLIS, June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Northwest Airlines today announced a five-day summer fare sale. The airline has reduced air fares within the continental United States by as much as 30 percent. Tickets for travel must be purchased by June 25 for travel through September 15.
 With the sale fares, passengers can fly round-trip for as little as $209 each way between Boston and Seattle, a savings of 25 percent off current levels, and for $102 each way between Chicago and New York, a savings of 30 percent off current levels.
 "This is a great opportunity for anyone who has not made his or her travel plans for the second half of the summer," said Michael E. Levine, executive vice president-marketing. "These fares provide value to travelers who are unlikely to see summer sale fares at these levels again."
 Passengers must buy their tickets at least seven or 14 days prior to departure, depending on days of travel. Similar to Northwest's targeted, limited sales earlier this year, these special fares are non- refundable, and other restrictions apply.
 "Travelers who haven't made plans for the upcoming holiday period now have a great opportunity to realize substantial savings," said Phil Haan, vice president-inventory sales and systems.
 To support this sale, Northwest will introduce a new broadcast and print advertising campaign featuring legendary bluesman Willie Murphy. The Minneapolis musician and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will appear in advertisements in Northwest hubs including Minneapolis/St. Paul, Detroit and Memphis a well as its primary gateway cities including Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco, New York, Chicago and Boston.
 Northwest and its regional airline partners, together with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, form the world's first global airline alliance, serving more than 380 cities in 81 countries on six continents.
