Northwest Airlines is to plead guilty and pay a $38m fine for its role in fixing air-cargo prices, the US Department of Justice has said.

The department said as part of a plea deal Northwest would co-operate with an ongoing anti-trust investigation.

Northwest Airlines Cargo, which is no longer operating, conspired to fix air-cargo rates from July 2004 to February 2006, the department added.
