Republic Airways Holdings Inc. on Friday announced that it has reached a tentative agreement on a four-year contract with the union that represents more than 2,200 pilots for subsidiaries Chautauqua Airlines, Republic Airlines and Shuttle America.

The proposed contract with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters includes pay increases, changes in work rules, and more flexibility in scheduling. The agreement still must be presented to union members for review and a formal ratification vote, which is expected in March.

“We are extremely pleased that we have, at long last, reached a new working agreement that recognizes the significant contributions our pilots make to our continued success,” said Republic Airways Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Wayne Heller.

Captain David Bourne, director of IBT’s airline division, said, “This agreement reflects a hard-earned and well deserved achievement for the enhancement of pay and work conditions for the Republic pilot group.”

Republic Airways Holdings, based in Indianapolis, is an airline holding company that owns Chautauqua Airlines, Republic Airlines and Shuttle America. The airlines operate a combined fleet of approximately 250 aircraft and offer passenger service on more than1,350 flights daily to more than 110 cities in the U.S., Canada and the Bahamas.
