ExpressJet Airlines Celebrates Flights From Louis Armstrong International Airport

EXPRESSJET AIRLINES CELEBRATES FLIGHTS FROM LOUIS ARMSTRONG NEW ORLEANS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

START OF EXPRESSJET NON-STOP SERVICE BRINGS SEVERAL NEW DESTINATIONS TO NEW ORLEANS BUSINESS AND VACATION TRAVELERS

NEW ORLEANS, May 14, 2007—New Orleans travelers now have service to six new non-stop destinations—San Antonio, Jacksonville, Fla., Austin, Birmingham, Kansas City, and Raleigh-Durham as well as one-stop service to Tucson.

“The entrance of ExpressJet has improved MSY’s ability to meet the needs of this growing market. We see demand for non-stop flights continuing to climb,” stated Sean Hunter, Interim Director of Aviation at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.

Making it easier for business and leisure travelers to come to New Orleans helps drive the local economy. In addition, ExpressJet has created new jobs and made significant investments in airport facilities and equipment.

Jim Ream, ExpressJet President and CEO, said that ExpressJet branded service aims to save travelers time by eliminating layovers in crowded hubs. “We intend to deliver our customers more convenience and more service in growing cities like New Orleans with populations that are the right size for our 50-seat aircraft,” Ream said.

Announcing details of the ExpressJet frequent flyer program, Ream said the JetSetsm program, “rewards our customers for how often they fly, not how far they go.” ExpressJet customers earn one roundtrip ticket to any destination ExpressJet serves for every eight roundtrips, or 16 one-way tickets, within a 24-month period.*

As a special introduction to the ExpressJet brand of flying, a limited-time JetSet promotion rewards flyers who fly using four roundtrip or eight one-way tickets between now and September 30, 2007 with one free roundtrip ticket to any destination ExpressJet serves.**

Flying a young fleet of fuel-efficient Embraer ERJ-145 aircraft configured with no middle seats, ExpressJet gives every customer an assigned seat and provides one-stop service that does not require changing planes.

To make boarding easier, ExpressJet also offers valet carry-on baggage service. Ream said ExpressJet upgraded in-flight entertainment with more than 100 channels of free XM® Satellite Radio, complimentary recognized name-brand snacks with full service meal options on longer flights, and redesigned, memory foam leather seating.

ExpressJet schedules and fares are now available for sale through most distribution channels for service from New Orleans to the following markets:

JAX Jacksonville, FL April 30

SAT San Antonio, TX April 30

AUS Austin, TX May 14

BHM Birmingham, AL May 14

MCI Kansas City, MO May 14

RDU Raleigh-Durham, NC May 14

TUS Tucson, AZ May 14

Booking and updated flight information is available through most travelers’ preferred providers including travel agencies, online distributors and at www.xjet.com.
