History

 

ExpressJet Airlines, Inc., is a wholly-owned subsidiary of SkyWest, Inc. (NASDAQ: SKYW), operating a fleet of Bombardier and Embraer regional jet aircraft to more than 110 destinations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

ExpressJet has more than 70 years of flying history and was formed through multiple airline mergers and transformations that occurred during that time. Today, ExpressJet is headquartered in Atlanta and operates as American Eagle and United Express.

Starting in early 2019, ExpressJet will begin flying exclusively as United Express, with flight operations centered out of Houston, Chicago, Cleveland and Newark. ExpressJet currently flies the Bombardier CRJ200 and Embraer ERJ145 for United Express.

ExpressJet employs more than 3,000 aviation professionals.
