World Airways Picks Up Mail Contract

Competition Breeds Efficiency; Efficiency Rewarded by Competition

Since the USPS went to an incentive/competitive air mail contracting program this Summer, a lot of accounts have changed.

One of the new ones is World Airways, which just announced that it has been selected to operate at least eight all-cargo flights between Newark (NJ) and Bahrain during the month of September. The award is the result of a competitive bid solicitation issued by the U.S. Postal Service, and flights, using DC-10-30F aircraft, will carry U.S. mail to and from American service personnel serving in Iraq.

Hollis Harris, chairman and chief executive officer of World Airways, said, "We believe that World's past record of reliability and performance for the U.S. Postal Service was a major reason for our selection to handle this contract. We look forward to working with the U.S. Postal Service on this important program, and we hope to continue to be a partner for future opportunities."

He added, "We have a long history in serving the air transportation needs of U.S. military working in all corners of the world. I'm proud that we are extending our support to the troops who provide such an important service for our country."
