“Our earnings for the first quarter are in line with the pace we had outlined in our fourth-quarter conference call in March,” Joe Hete, President and CEO of ATSG, said. “In addition to the higher pension and restructuring costs we projected, we faced delays in obtaining customer commitments to new aircraft operating agreements. The good news is that many of our customers, and DHL in particular, are growing, and have plans to deploy more of our freighter aircraft into both domestic as well as new, non-U.S. markets throughout the course of the year.”
