PURCHASE,N.Y., Friday, November 30, 2018 — Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: AAWW) congratulates and thanks the United States government for reaching an open skies aviation agreement with the United Kingdom, to become effective when the air services agreement between the United States and Member States of the European Union ceases to apply to the United Kingdom following Brexit.
The U.S.-UK agreement will ensure post-Brexit continuation of the market-driven aviation environment needed to facilitate continuing growth of U.S. jobs and the U.S. economy.
“We are extremely gratified that the United States continues to pursue its well-tested open skies aviation policy,” said President and Chief Executive Officer William J. Flynn. “When it takes effect, the U.S.-UK air services agreement will improve the global scheduling options for our airline subsidiaries by allowing them to exercise seventh-freedom cargo rights to and from the United Kingdom.”
