Atlas Air Fully Committed to A New Contract for Pilots: Statement from Bill Flynn, President and Chief Executive Officer, Atlas Air Worldwide

PURCHASE, N.Y., May 22, 2019 –“We are proud of our strong and growing workforce of more than 2,000 pilots, and we are eager to pay them more and reach a new contract. These protest efforts are common tactics that are often used by unions to spread misinformation and gain leverage in contract negotiations. The fact is Atlas is committed to its pilots. We have an uncompromised commitment to the safety and well-being of our pilots – and our practices meet or exceed all regulatory requirements and industry standards. Together with our pilots, we are committed to the success of our customers, and have worked hard to earn a strong record of delivering trusted service. It’s time to put pilots first, ahead of protests, and get to a new contract.”
