ExpressJet Airlines (EV, Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson) has announced it will base some of its incoming fleet of E175s at Houston Intc'l. The Atlanta-based production carrier, which was recently acquired from SkyWest Airlines (United States of America) by a United Airlines joint-venture firm named ManaAir, will add the first of twenty-five E175s due in 2019 in April.

"Houston is a great place to live and is highly accessible for crew members who commute," said Vice President of Flight Operations Greg Wooley. "We're proud that it will be the first home for our E175s and look forward to announcing a second base location soon."

ExpressJet also operates two CRJ-100s, fifteen CRJ-200s, twenty-four CRJ-700s (stored), and 109 E145s from United Express from bases that, aside from Houston, include Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson, Chicago O'Hare, Cleveland Hopkins, Dallas/Fort Worth, Detroit Metropolitan, New York La Guardia, and New York Newark.
