National Airlines moves to Get America Flying Again

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 19, 2001--``Let's do our part to get America flying again,'' was the challenge put forth by Michael J. Conway, president and CEO of National Airlines, to his management team.

Shortly after that mandate, National Airlines announced that it will fly passengers for $1(a) for originating travel on any of the next four Tuesdays beginning September 25, 2001, provided return travel is purchased at special ``Get America Flying'' discount rates. Return travel is available on any day in the same fare class through November 8, 2001. National's ``Get America Flying'' return fares are as low as $24(a) between San Francisco or Los Angeles and Las Vegas, $49(a) between Chicago or Dallas/Ft. Worth and Las Vegas, and only $74(a) between any East Coast city served by National and Las Vegas. First Class ``Get America Flying'' fares are also available as low as $500(a) roundtrip from coast to coast.

``The one dollar origination fare from every ticket purchased through our `Get America Flying' offer will be contributed to a special fund set up by the employees of National for the families of the flight crews that perished in the tragedies,'' Conway stated.

``While indications at this time are that the US Government intends to provide much-needed financial aid to the airline industry, we will not stand by and allow a key component of our economy to go idle when we have the ability to do something now,'' Conway added. ``The tragic events of last week have put an enormous strain on the travel and tourism industry, and every effort must be made to get people to return to their normal travel routines. Should government assistance be forthcoming, we welcome it as it is very much needed by our industry.''

National Airlines serves Chicago Midway, Chicago O'Hare, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Los Angeles, Miami, Newark, New York JFK, Philadelphia and San Francisco with nonstop flights to and from its Las Vegas hub. Reservations can be made through a travel agent, by calling National Airlines at 1-888-757-5387, or at nationalairlines.com.

National Airlines asks customers to remain patient as the nation's air transportation system starts up again. Passengers are strongly encouraged to arrive for all flights at least two hours prior to departure due to the new, heightened security measures.

The following are sample fares:

(a) -- Requires the purchase of the "Get America Flying"
origination and return ticket (roundtrip ticket). Travel may originate
in either city, a one-night minimum stay and two-day advance purchase
is required. Return travel must be completed by November 8, 2001.
Tickets are non-refundable and future credit is not available for
unused portions. This offer does not apply to previously purchased
tickets or reservations. Dollar-based transportation vouchers,
dollars-off coupons, National Comps Points, and any other discount are
not valid for use with this offer. Immediate purchase is required with
the "Get America Flying" offer. Fares do not include Passenger
Facility Charges (PFCs) of up to $4.50 for each segment, and a federal
excise tax of up to $3.00 for each segment of the itinerary (a segment
is defined as one takeoff and landing) where applicable.

Conway concluded, "As I stated earlier, we are trying to do our
part in getting our nation flying again. We are encouraging people to
take to the air whether it's on National Airlines or any other
airline."
