Pilots beginning their career have many factors to consider when choosing where to work – base locations, quality of life, pay, upgrade time, aircraft type – but the long-term financial stability of the airline is one of the most important factors to consider. We are proud to say that ExpressJet, as part of Skywest, Inc., leads the industry in many of these categories, especially our focus on long term financial stability and operational success.
One of the primary drivers for the company’s financial success is the reliability of our product. ExpressJet Airlines has continued to be the industry leader in operational performance: our controllable completion performance has topped all United Express carriers for the last 12 months and counting, and we’re a top-tier performer for Delta Connection and American Eagle.
SkyWest, Inc. President Chip Childs credited ExpressJet’s employees with our success: “I can’t say enough about the operating performance and what the [ExpressJet] teams have done out there to be, candidly, the best in the industry.”
“Every decision we make is for the long-term stability of our company, which in turn benefits the people who make ExpressJet a success,” said COO Alex Marren. “We have a great team of aviation professionals who provide safe, reliable and enjoyable flights every day for our passengers. Working together, we will continue to improve and make ExpressJet an even better company.”
More ExpressJet pilots are hired by the majors than any other airline, offering opportunity to those who wish to move up in their careers. Pilots seeking to make ExpressJet a long-term career are able to have confidence in the financial stability of our airline. All of our pilots fly with the best.
