ExpressJet (formerly Continental Express) was founded in 1986 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Continental Airlines. It acquired the ExpressJet Holdings name in 1996 after its first ERJ 145 arrived. In 2002, ExpressJet became an independent carrier after management acquired the company from Continental. It continued its Continental Express operations but launched an independent, point-to-point operation in 2007. Prior to that, in 2006, it launched a charter business using aircraft removed from the Continental Express flying.
On 12-Nov-2010, ExpressJet Holdings, Inc became a wholly-owned subsidiary of SkyWest, Inc. It has service agreements to fly under the brands Continental Express and United Express on behalf of Continental Airlines and United Airlines, respectively.
On 31-Dec-2011 ExpressJet and Atlantic Southeast Airlines achieved a single operating certificate. All flights of the merged airline operate under the 'ExpressJet Airlines' brand.
