ExpressJet began operations as Atlantic Southeast Airlines. After acquiring Southeastern Airways in 1983, Atlantic Southeast became the first Delta Connection carrier. In 1996, Continental Airlines renamed Continental Express “ExpressJet” for market distinction. Fifteen years later, the new ExpressJet is formed when Atlantic Southeast and ExpressJet receive single operating certificate status from the Federal Aviation Administration.
Today, ExpressJet operates 1,500 flights per day to over 180 airports as American Eagle, Delta Connection and United Express. Their route map extends from the United States to destinations in Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.
