Republic Airways Holdings has reached an agreement with United Airlines that secures the long-term relationship between the two airlines. The motion filed on May 30th in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York keeps Republic on a path towards achieving the goals established at the outset of this case. “Today’s announcement further strengthens an important relationship for Republic. The agreement we have reached today once approved, will secure United as a long-term strategic partner, provide significant benefits to our airline, and will preserve a reliable and on-time travel experience for United’s customers,” said Bryan Bedford, Chairman, President and CEO of Republic. The parties anticipate that the motion will be heard on June 15th, 2016. The amended agreement would provide for the uninterrupted flying of all fifty-four (54) E170s and E175s currently operated by Republic for United and also for future Ejet flying by Republic for United through term extensions to all current E170 aircraft and, subject to certain conditions, expected further deliveries of E175 aircraft under revised new delivery schedules. The new agreement will become effective upon issuance of the approval order by the court.
