Republic Airways to Host Recruiting Sessions in Hometown of Indianapolis as it Launches Plans to Hire More Than 350 Flight Attendants in Preparation for 2007 Growth.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Republic Airways Holdings (NASDAQ:RJET) announced today that it will be hosting a series of recruiting sessions in Indianapolis, Indiana as part of its announced plans to grow its flight attendant workforce by more than 350.

All three of Republic's carriers - Chautauqua Airlines, Republic Airlines and Shuttle America - expect to add Flight Attendants thanks to the company's strong partnerships with American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, US Airways, and beginning in 2007, Continental Airlines. All three carriers have a crew base of flight attendants at Indianapolis International Airport, from which it operates 275 weekly departures as Delta Connection, United Express and US Airways Express. The company's existing flight attendant workforce of approximately 1,100 is expected to grow to 1400 by early 2007, and a series of flight attendant training classes are scheduled for the next four months to accommodate the expansion. Republic Airways recently held recruiting sessions in Greensboro, North Carolina and Louisville, Kentucky where over 400 flight attendant candidates participated in the recruiting sessions.

Republic Airways headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana employs more than 3,500 aviation professionals with over 1,400 located in Indianapolis. The company operates a 140,000 square foot aircraft maintenance facility at Indianapolis International Airport which supports all three subsidiaries and a 46,000 square foot headquarters facility in the College Park office park in Indianapolis.

"The regional airline industry continues to generate the bulk of the growth and jobs in aviation, and as we lead the sector in expanding and flying even larger jets, we are excited about the future of the airline and the opportunities for our employees," said Republic Airways CEO Bryan Bedford. "We have an outstanding group of employees here, and as Indianapolis's true hometown airline we want to tap the region's long affiliation with aviation and find new employees interested in joining our company and participate in our continued expansion."

The three Republic-owned airlines operate a series of flight attendant crew bases at Indianapolis, Louisville, Buffalo Greensboro, St. Louis, New York LaGuardia, Columbus, Richmond, Chicago O'Hare, Washington Reagan National Airport, Pittsburgh, and Orlando. New hire flight attendants must be willing to relocate initially to any of these bases, but if eligible, can bid for openings at a preferred base. The company works with flight attendants to help them secure their preferred base as quickly as possible.

Republic Airways Holdings, based in Indianapolis, is the airline holding company for the three carriers, and offers scheduled passenger service on more than 1,000 flights daily to 90 cities in 35 states, Canada, Mexico and the Bahamas through airline services agreements with five major airline partners.
