Delta cancels Freedom CRJ-900 Delta Connection agreement

Mesa Air Group released that on August 1, 2008, Mesa received notification from Delta that it is terminating Freedom’s CRJ-900 Delta Connection agreement, once again alleging Freedom failed to maintain specified operational performance, as outlined in the contract. Mesa strongly disputes these allegations and intends to vigorously defend its contractual rights.

Freedom currently operates seven CRJ-900 regional jets for Delta Connection, with a further seven aircraft scheduled to enter service by May 2009. The Company subleases the Aircraft from Delta for $1 per month per aircraft and these aircraft will be returned to Delta in connection with this termination with no further financial obligation to Mesa.
