ExpressJet Airlines introduces Embraer E175 to fleet

ExpressJet Airlines has begun service with its newest aircraft type – the Embraer E175.

The first flight, UA4042, departed Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

“For ExpressJet and its 3,000 aviation professionals, the Embraer E175 is more than a new, high-tech aircraft,” said chairman and CEO Subodh Karnik. “It is a symbol of ExpressJet’s future as a growing and trusted United Express partner.”

ExpressJet is adding 25 new E175s to its fleet in 2019.

So far, the airline has taken delivery of four E175s and will continue adding new aircraft throughout the year.
