US Airways is shutting down what remains of Regional subsidiary MidAtlantic Airways on May 28, resulting in 368 layoffs in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, according to press reports. MidAtlantic was established in 2002 to operate 70-seat Embraer 170s and provide jobs for furloughed mainline pilots. US Airways already had sold off most MidAtlantic assets to Republic Airways, which will continue operating the aircraft and routes on behalf of the Major following the transfer.
