Delta and ExpressJet to Terminate Flying Agreement

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Wednesday, 9 July 2008

Delta and ExpressJet have mutually agreed to cease all ExpressJet Delta Connection operations as of 1 September 2008.

ExpressJet currently operates 23 ERJ-145 aircraft for Delta Connection on flights that primarily operate out of Los Angeles and Salt Lake City. Delta intends to award a portion of this flying, including all routes currently operated by ExpressJet at its Salt Lake City hub, to another Delta Connection carrier. Delta has said it will rebook customers whose scheduled service is impacted by these changes.

We are pleased to be able to reach a mutual agreement on the termination of our partnership with ExpressJet, said Don Bornhorst, senior vice president Delta Connection. While we expect minimal impact to customers, Delta will work to ensure that alternate transportation options are arranged as quickly as possible.

With the losses we were experiencing from our Delta pro-rate flying combined with our ability to return aircraft to the lessor, this termination of service is in the best interest of our company, said Jim Ream, ExpressJet President and Chief Executive Officer.

After 1 September, ExpressJet will retain the 23 ERJ-145 aircraft it currently flies Delta Connection.
