GoJet Airlines announced it is expanding its fleet of Bombardier CRJ-550 aircraft with the addition of 20 new aircraft. The announcement follows GoJet’s 10-year agreement to operate 54 CRJ-550 aircraft for United Airlines and will bring GoJet’s total CRJ-550 fleet count to 74 by 2021.
GoJet and United Airlines launched the first CRJ-550 service from United’s Chicago O’Hare hub in October 2019 and recently began operating CRJ-550 service from its hub at New York/Newark. This summer, the airline will begin operating CRJ-550 aircraft from its Washington Dulles hub.
“The GoJet team continues to work incredibly hard to ensure a successful rollout of the CRJ-550, and the feedback from customers has been fantastic,” said Rick Leach, President and Chief Executive Officer of GoJet Airlines. “United’s decision to add more of these aircraft so quickly after the initial product launch is indicative of their long-term commitment to both the CRJ-550 platform and to GoJet. We look forward to growing this exciting program with United.”
“Our customers are telling us they love flying the CRJ-550 and we’re excited to continue growing our fleet and our long-standing relationship with GoJet,” said Sarah Murphy, United’s senior vice president of United Express. “We congratulate GoJet on the success of the CRJ-550 program and we look forward to offering travelers more opportunities to experience this aircraft.”
GoJet expects to start taking deliveries of these additional aircraft in the summer of 2020.
