Another airline goes down into the history books
Expressjet Airlines, a United Express carrier, will be ceasing operations on September 30, 2020.
Expressjet says that this is due to United consolidating to one regional carrier, CommuteAir.
Expressjet has known that United would cut ties with them. With no other airline to work with, they have opted to cease operation and lay off nearly 3,000 workers.
Expressjet once flew to nearly 100 destinations in the US, Canada, and Mexico before the pandemic hit. They would be the third regional carrier to cease operations. The other two being Trans State and Compass, both of which have now ceased operations.
