Congratulations ExpressJet Airlines! This week its first of 25 new Embraer E175 aircraft was delivered in a handover ceremony at the Embraer factory and delivery center in São José dos Campos, Brazil.

"The delivery of our first E175 represents a significant milestone in ExpressJet's growth as an exclusive United Express carrier," said Chairman and CEO Subodh Karnik. "I want to express my gratitude to our partners at Embraer and United Airlines as well as to the ExpressJet employees who have worked tirelessly over the past six months to make this day a reality."

ExpressJet will take delivery of new E175s through the remainder of 2019. Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) will serve as the airline's first E175 base, with a second base location to be announced soon.

To support its E175 fleet growth, ExpressJet is hiring more than 600 new pilots in 2019. Pilots who sign on with ExpressJet can expect a quick selection process, an immediate class date, and to bid for flying within three months. Pilots interested in signing on with ExpressJet should apply at expressjet.com/pilots or airlineapps.com.
