Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings Subsidiary Wins Second Aircraft Agreement with Panalpina Air & Ocean Extending Long-term Relationship
Atlas Air to provide ACMI service for a Boeing 747-400 Freighter, expanding Panalpina's Own Controlled Air Network

Multi-year contract provides Panalpina with even more flexibility in scheduling and routing

Wednesday, September 15, 2010 -- Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. (AAWW) (Nasdaq: AAWW), a leading global provider of air cargo assets and outsourced aircraft operating solutions, today confirmed an agreement to place a second Boeing 747-400 freighter with Panalpina Air & Ocean Ltd.

The multi-year agreement, under which Atlas Air will provide ACMI (aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance) services to Panalpina, was announced on the 20th anniversary of Panalpina's “Dixie Jet” freighter service connecting Huntsville, Ala., with Europe, which is also operated by a B747-400 Freighter leased from Atlas Air.

The second aircraft, to be based at Panalpina's European hub in Luxembourg, will operate services from Asia and Africa to Europe; Europe to Africa, the Middle East and Asia; and from Asia to the United States. It is set to begin operating in early October.

Panalpina and Atlas Air have a successful track record of working together for almost two decades. “On a day where we celebrate a long-standing relationship with one of the world's leading suppliers of freight forwarding and logistics services, it's only fitting that we confirm a further commitment to serve Panalpina and its customers with state-of-the-art, high-quality capacity and time-definite service,” said William J. Flynn, President and Chief Executive Officer of AAWW.

“In Atlas Air we have a proven partner with the flexibility, fleet, scope and experience to expand our capabilities and in turn to provide better supply chain management solutions for our customers,” added Karl Weyeneth, Chief Operating Officer of the Panalpina Group. “We look forward to adding the additional aircraft from Atlas Air and expanding our relationship.”

In Luxembourg, Panalpina's Own Controlled Air Network serves key customers in industries that include energy, high tech, health care and automotive.

One of the major financial institutions reported yesterday that 1st 747-8 (and 787) delivery will be pushed back, probably until July. Last I heard, it was the end of this year, pushed back to 1st 1/4 2011. :-(

Well, the contract negotications go to arbitration next month so maybe the middle of next year we'll have something.

International DH is business or better, domestic it's coach.

Atlas will be at the Aviation Career Expo in LAS in October.

Perhaps a good way to get some face time with the HR folks.
