Republic Airways to fly for Milwaukee carrier

Republic Airways Holdings will operate a dozen 76-seat Embraer aircraft for Milwaukee-based Midwest Airlines, Midwest announced yesterday.

Indianapolis-based Republic will operate the planes until Midwest can move the fleet under its own Federal Aviation Administration operating certificate. Midwest will have the option of leasing the Embraer 170 aircraft from Republic.

Republic also said it is providing $15 million in financing to Midwest, which is in the midst of restructuring.
