Global Aviation Holdings Emerges From Chapter 11

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga., Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Aviation Holdings Inc. (the "Company') announced today that its plan of reorganization (the "Plan"), which was approved by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of New York on December 6, 2012, became effective today allowing the Company to complete its financial restructuring and emerge from Chapter 11.

The Plan reflects a global settlement with the Company's first and second lien lenders, the official committee of unsecured creditors, and the Company's labor unions, allowing the Company to exit from bankruptcy with reduced debt, a rationalized and lower cost fleet, and new five-year collective bargaining agreements with four of its five represented work groups.  In connection with the Plan, the Company also secured an exit financing facility of $35 million.  The exit facility, liquidity on hand, and reduced cost structure provide the necessary framework to effectively compete in today's marketplace.

"With today's successful emergence from Chapter 11, we are well positioned for success and can devote our full attention to growth and business development," stated Rob Binns, CEO.  "We are emerging from bankruptcy as a much stronger company with significantly reduced debt and the appropriate aircraft fleet and operational structure to compete in today's challenging economic environment."

Binns added,  "We want to thank our customers, suppliers, lenders, advisors, and dedicated employees for their support throughout the Chapter 11 process.  The commitment of our stakeholders has been a key component to completing the necessary financial and operational restructuring of the Company."

Global Aviation Holdings Inc., based in Peachtree City, Ga., is the parent company of North American Airlines and World Airways.  Global is the largest commercial provider of charter air transportation for the U.S. military, and a major provider of worldwide commercial global passenger and cargo air transportation services.  North American Airlines, founded in 1989, operates passenger charter flights using B767-300ER aircraft.  World Airways, founded in 1948, operates cargo and passenger charter flights using B747-400 and MD-11 aircraft.
