ATLANTA, UNITED STATES, October 2, 2021 / -- On October 1, 2021, ExpressJet Airlines completed its first commercial flying mission today – exactly one year to the day since its last flight as a United Express carrier for United Airlines.

The mission was a sports team charter between Tallahassee, Fla. and Anderson S.C. ExpressJet anticipates serving a variety of charter customers with its popular ERJ145 jets and continuing its legacy as the pre-eminent regional-jet charter provider in America.

ExpressJet’s mission comes one day after the company announced the launch of aha!, its “air-hotel-adventure” leisure brand. Combining value-priced fares and nonstop flights, aha! will begin flying from its home base at Reno-Tahoe International Airport on October 24, 2021 to eight cities across the western United States.
