Atlas Air: “The fourth quarter reflected encouraging trends for airfreight generally, and was consistent with the views of tightening supply that we expressed throughout 2009. Although airfreight demand levels improved meaningfully in the fourth quarter of 2009, the charter yields experienced in the quarter have seasonally subsided going into first quarter of 2010. We will continue to closely monitor the pace of economic growth going into 2010 as a driver of further improvement,” William Flynn, President & CEO. Source: Atlas Air, 04-Feb-2010.
