Offers an additional $5,000 with eligible type rating

 ExpressJet Airlines announced that it is increasing its pilot sign-on bonus to $22,000. Pilots with an eligible type rating will receive an additional $5,000. The increase makes ExpressJet pilots some of the most highly compensated among regional airline pilots.

ExpressJet plans to hire more than 600 pilots in 2019 as it adds 25 new Embraer E175 aircraft to its fleet and exercises options to grow its existing fleet of Embraer ERJ145 aircraft. Pilots who sign on with ExpressJet can expect an immediate class date and to complete training and begin flying within approximately three months.

"Now is the time to join ExpressJet," said Vice President of Flight Operations Greg Wooley. "Our significant growth in 2019 makes ExpressJet the airline of choice for pilots who want top-tier compensation and work rules as well as the most robust path to United Airlines through the United Career Path Program."

The United Career Path Program allows ExpressJet pilots to secure a career with United while flying for ExpressJet. Since November 2016, over 250 ExpressJet pilots have progressed to United through the program.

ExpressJet hosts new-hire pilot training classes twice per month. After applying, pilots can be placed in class within as little as four business days. Pilots interested in joining ExpressJet should visit www.expressjet.com/pilots to apply. 


ExpressJet Airlines operates as United Express, on behalf of United Airlines (NASDAQ: UAL), to serve more than 100 airports across the United States, Canada and Mexico. The airline flies more than 3,300 weekly flights from bases in Chicago, Cleveland, Houston and Newark. ExpressJet pilots enjoy top-tier pay and work rules as well as a direct path to a career at United Airlines.
