"With this order, Republic Airlines will be the largest operator of CF34-8E-powered Embraer E170/175 aircraft with close to 300 aircraft, and we are proud to partner with Republic and Embraer on this significant milestone for all of us," says Chaker Chahrour, vice president and general manager of Global Sales & Marketing at GE Aviation.
