Republic Airways inks aircraft deal with Caesars
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Republic Airways Holdings Inc. said Friday that it had agreed on a three-year deal with casino giant Caesars Entertainment Corp. to operate five Embraer E190 aircraft that will provide more than 1,500 flights each year for Caesars' customers.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
Indianapolis-based Republic, which uses regional jets to feed traffic to major airlines, said it will start providing the flights in January.
