Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings Launches Dreamlifter Flight Service

Inaugural Flight Begins Delivery Of Major Assemblies For Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner Program

Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings' Atlas Air unit has launched Dreamlifter fleet service for Boeing, pursuant to a previously announced nine-year agreement that significantly expands Atlas Air’s outsourced CMI (crew, maintenance, and insurance) service offering. The service will provide key supply-chain support for the production of Boeing’s new commercial jetliner, the 787 Dreamliner.

The company said Thursday that, starting with its inaugural flight from Wichita, KS, to Everett, WA, on July 20, the remainder of Atlas Air's Dreamlifter fleet of four 747-400 aircraft would be operational during the balance of 2010. The aircraft have been specially modified by Boeing to transport major assemblies for its 787 Dreamliner from suppliers around the world to Boeing production facilities in the United States.

“The first flight of our new Dreamlifter fleet service for Boeing marks an exciting start to a long-term partnership with the world’s leading aerospace company,” said William J. Flynn, President and Chief Executive Officer of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. “Together with Boeing, we have worked very closely in preparing for the initiation of our new service, and we look forward to providing world-class Dreamlifter service to Boeing as it ushers in a new era in air travel with the first all-new jet airplane of the 21st century.
