ExpressJet Airlines looking to resume scheduled operations as independent carrier

    ExpressJet Airlines submitted (16-Apr-2021) a notice to the US Department of Transportation (DoT) of its intent to resume scheduled operations as an independent carrier. It also requested the DoT waive a 45 day advance filing requirement for the resumption of such operations. Details include: 

    • ExpressJet ceased scheduled operations after conducting its last United Express flight for United Airlines on 30-Sep-2020;
    • During 4Q2020, the carrier focused on returning 130 aircraft and related equipment and engines to United as part of a reimbursed wind-down of its
      United Express operations;
    • ExpressJet deferred its resumption of scheduled operations until 2Q2021 and initiated a ramp up in Jan-2021 after finalising a new business plan. The plan will allow the carrier to reinstate approximately 300 employees over an initial 12 month period and provide service to several underserved communities;
    • ExpressJet‘s ownership and corporate structure have remained unchanged since the DoT’s review in 2019;
    • The carrier has also maintained its active US FAA certification. [more – original PR]
