ExpressJet Goes Non-Stop to Kansas City & Raleigh-Durham

Monday February 5, 2007

Louisville International Airport Offers Non-Stop
Service to 18 of Its 20 Top Markets


ExpressJet Airlines announced today that it would offer Louisville’s only twice daily non-stop, round-trip jet service to Kansas City, Missouri and
Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina beginning about mid-May. Reservations can be made by calling ExpressJet at 1-888-958-9538. Tickets may be purchased online beginning February 26, 2007, at XJet.com and will be available on FlyLouisville.com at a later date.

“ExpressJet’s new service will provide direct links to two of Louisville’s top 20 travel destinations,” Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson said. “With the new flights announced just three weeks ago, Louisville International will offer non-stop service to 18 of its top 20 travel destinations -- greatly expanding travel options and enhancing convenience for our fliers.”

“ExpressJet is not a new airline to Louisville,” noted Airport Marketing and Air Service Development Director Tom Tyra. “Currently, it provides non-stop service to Cleveland, Houston and Newark as Continental Express, and will continue to do so. And, it provides local ground operations for American Airlines. However, this is the first time ExpressJet has branded its own service, bringing the number of passenger airline brands to provide service to Louisville to ten.”

Airport Board Vice-Chairman Phil Lynch commented, “ExpressJet was one of Fortune magazine’s ‘Most Admired Airlines’ in 2005 and 2006. With the free XM radio, ExpressJet has the potential of becoming Louisville’s Most Admired Airline in 2007.” 

“ExpressJet is one of the largest regional airlines in the industry and one of the most seasoned operators of ERJ-145’s,” offered Airport Executive Director Skip Miller. “We are proud that ExpressJet has chosen Louisville as the only city in Kentucky to receive its service.”
