ExpressJet Unveils Route Schedule

The Continental Airlines spin-off on Monday announced flight service to 24 U.S. cities, all west of the Mississippi, with service set to begin April 2007. Service originates from Los Angeles Ontario airport, Sacramento, San Diego, Austin, San Antonio and New Orleans. Destinations that are now available for booking include Albuquerque, Spokane, Boise, Tucson, Omaha, Kansas City, MO, Colorado Springs, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Birmingham, Raleigh/Durham, Louisville, Monterey, CA, Fresno, Bakersfield, Jacksonville, FL, El Paso and Corpus Christi. The ExpressJet fleet has no middle seat and will offer valet carry-on bag service, complimentary snacks and full-service meal options during longer flights. "ExpressJet is bringing a young fleet of planes and more comfort, convenience and quality customer service to cities that either did not have non-stop service, or had too few travel options," said Jim Ream, president and CEO of the company. "Now, our customers will be able to relax on a non-stop flight, in a comfortable leather seat with more than 100 channels of free XM Satellite Radio." Visit [www.xjet.com].
