ExpressJet Airlines, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SkyWest, Inc., this month is operating its last Canadair (Bombardier) CRJ200 revenue flights.
As previously reported on December 23, 2016, ExpressJet expected to transition to flying primarily dual-class aircraft in its CRJ operation by removing its Bombardier CRJ200 aircraft from service over the next year.
The company has been gradually retiring the CRJ200 fleet. Some aircraft have been transferred to partner SkyWest Airlines and all others are now in storage. Some aircraft were relocated to Oklahoma City, OK.
The retirement of the ExpressJet CRJ200 fleet was stepped up this month. N854AS is operating today but it is expected to join the others soon in retirement, probably after the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
