World Airways, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Global Aviation Holdings, Inc., is a U.S. certificated air carrier established in 1948. For 60 years, World Airways has been a global provider of long-range passenger and cargo air transportation services to the U.S. Air Force, major international airlines and freight forwarders, international leisure tour operators and cruise ship companies.

The company operates wide-body, long-range aircraft (MD-11s, DC-10s and Boeing 747s) under two types of fixed-rate contracts - ACMI (aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance) and Full Service. Under both types of contracts, the customer bears the responsibility for filling the aircraft's passenger and cargo capacity. Many of World's airline customers have determined that outsourcing a portion of their wide-body passenger or cargo requirements can be cost-effective, offering significant operational and financial flexibility.

The company's mission is to provide specialized air transportation solutions through innovative people committed to delivering the highest levels of safety, reliability, customer satisfaction and shareholder value.

World has been based in Peachtree City, Georgia, since 2001. The company has 1,500 employees and annual revenue of more than $500 million. Pilots and flight attendants are represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, and dispatchers are represented by the Transport Workers Union of America AFL/CIO.

World Airways is a member of the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, Metropolitan Atlanta Chamber of Commerce and the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce.
