US Airways and Republic Expand Fleet

US Airways and regional airline partner Republic Airways Holdings will add 30 Embraer 175 aircraft to the US Airways Express network. These new 86-seat aircraft will replace 20 existing 50-seat Embraer 145s operated for US Airways Express by Republic's Chautauqua Airlines subsidiary. The remaining 10 deliveries will either replace other retiring aircraft or be used for limited growth in 2008. The new aircraft will have a single coach-class configuration and will enter service starting in 2007 at a delivery rate of one or two planes a month through summer 2008.
