"Strengthening customer demand has resulted in revenue increases in our
adhoc, charter and ACMI business sectors. We are pleased with the
improvement over the previous Quarter and the relative stability in
customer demand after many quarters of economic slow down. Increased
direct expenses were primarily due to the additional block hours flown
for charters, higher fuel costs and foreign exchange gains recorded in
the prior year," said Ajay Virmani, President and Chief Executive
Officer. "We remain focused on further cost control and reductions that
will translate into margin improvements as demand continues to grow in
the second half of 2010", added Virmani.
