Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc.
Files Form 8-K Report for Second Quarter 2005 Results

Purchase, N.Y., September 26, 2005 -- Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. (AAWW) (OTC: AAWW.PK), a leading provider of global air cargo services, has filed a Current Report on Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission that reports, among other things, the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2005.

The financial statements included in the Form 8-K have not been reviewed by AAWW’s independent registered public accountants. While AAWW expects to report these financial statements for this period on a SEC Form 10-Q once the independent accountants have completed their review, AAWW management believes that the financials included in the Form 8-K accurately reflect AAWW’s financial condition as of the periods indicated.
