Competition Breeds Efficiency; Efficiency Rewarded by
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
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."
