Republic Airways Holdings (Indianapolis) has now confirmed our earlier report. The holding company will acquire 10 Embraer ERJ 190-100 IGW aircraft (ERJ 190-100ARs) from US Airways. The first four (N961UW and N963UW have already left US) will enter service flying for its subsidiary Midwest Airlines (probably operated by Republic Airlines) in November and December. The other six will enter service in the first quarter of 2010 for its “branded operations” (believed to also include some flying for Frontier Airlines). Republic will apply $35 million it loaded to US Airways towards the purchase.
