ATSG DEPLOYS TWO 767 FREIGHTERS IN SUPPORT OF DHL'S U.S. NETWORK

WILMINGTON, OH – June 4, 2012 – Air Transport Services Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATSG) announced today that its ABX Air subsidiary has deployed two Boeing 767 freighter aircraft with DHL under short-term ACMI arrangements in support of DHL’s U.S. air network.

ATSG said a 767-200 and a 767-300 freighter aircraft are supplementing 18 Boeing 767 freighter aircraft (14 of which are owned by ATSG) that ABX Air is currently operating for DHL in the domestic market. The two aircraft were placed in service for DHL on June 1 under agreements following the recent removal of several aircraft from DHL’s network by another carrier. ATSG is in discussions with DHL concerning the potential for a longer-term agreement involving the two additional aircraft.

Joe Hete, President and CEO of ATSG, said, “Our strong, long-term relationship with DHL is based in part on our ability to meet both its short- and long-term requirements for access to efficient medium widebody freighters. As DHL’s principal source of freighter airlift in North America, we will make every effort to support DHL’s future freighter aircraft requirements as they may develop in the future.”
