Republic Airways to Acquire 10 Embraer 190AR Aircraft from US Airways

Republic Airways Holdings (NASDAQ: RJET) today announced that it will

acquire 10 Embraer 190AR jets from US Airways. Republic will apply the

full balance of its $35 million loan from US Airways toward the purchase

of the aircraft and assume the remaining debt on the aircraft.

Four of the 99-seat jets are expected to enter service in November and

December 2009 and will replace Boeing 717 aircraft that are being

removed from service at Republic’s Midwest Airlines. The remaining six

aircraft are expected to enter service in branded operations during the

first half of 2010. With the addition of these 10 aircraft, Republic’s

subsidiaries will operate the largest fleet of EJet aircraft in the

world with a total of 145 EJets, including 15 E190 aircraft.

“We’re pleased to work with our long-standing partner, US Airways, to

expand our fleet of EJet aircraft,” said Sean Menke, EVP and Chief

Marketing Officer of Republic Airways. “The E190 has allowed us to offer

unmatched passenger comfort while restoring service to important

destinations within our branded network, and these additional aircraft

will allow us to continue that process.”

Republic Airways Holdings, based in Indianapolis, Indiana is an airline

holding company that owns Chautauqua Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Lynx

Aviation, Midwest Airlines, Republic Airlines and Shuttle America,

collectively “the airlines.” The airlines offer scheduled passenger

service on approximately 1,800 flights daily to 126 cities in 47 states,

Canada, Mexico and Costa Rica under branded operations at Frontier and

Midwest, and through fixed-fee airline services agreements with five

major U.S. airlines. The fixed-fee flights are operated under an airline

partner brand, such as AmericanConnection, Continental Express, Delta

Connection, United Express, and US Airways Express. The airlines

currently employ over 11,000 aviation professionals and operate 294

aircraft.
