Mesa challenges Delta's efforts to terminate contract

Mesa Air Group announced that on March 28, 2008, Delta Air Lines notified the Company of its intent to terminate the Delta Connection Agreement among Delta, the Company, and Mesa’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Freedom Airlines, dated as of May 3, 2005 (as thereafter amended, the “Connection Agreement”). Delta seeks to terminate the Connection Agreement as a result of Freedom’s alleged failure to maintain a specified completion rate with respect to its ERJ-145 Delta Connection flights during three months of the six-month period September 2007 through February 2008. The notice issued by Delta is accompanied by a proposed temporary agreement pursuant to which Freedom would continue to provide Delta Connection services while the parties discuss the terms of a transition agreement. This termination does not affect Freedom’s CRJ-900 Delta Connection flying. Mesa denies there is any basis for terminating the Connection Agreement and intends to defend its rights thereunder.
