Embraer and Republic Airways, operator of the largest Embraer fleet in the world, have signed a contract for the sale of 47 Embraer 175 jets. The agreement also includes options for an additional 47 aircraft, providing a potential for 94 E175s, which could reach a total value of approximately $4 billion, in 2013 economic conditions, at list price.
Pilots for three airlines owned by Indianapolis-based Republic Airways Holdings voted to authorize their union leaders to call a strike against the company should it become necessary.
