ExpressJet, JetBlue announce career pathway partnership

ExpressJet Airlines said it has partnered with JetBlue Airways through the JetBlue University Gateway Program to offer qualified students and current pilots a clear pathway to a career at JetBlue.

The partnership expands on an earlier agreement with JetBlue to create three distinct pathways from an Aviation Accreditation Board International partner school to ExpressJet to JetBlue: ExpressJet to JetBlue; ExpressJet to Cape Air to JetBlue; Cape Air to ExpressJet to JetBlue.

In addition, this new partnership will offer current ExpressJet pilots who meet all program requirements an additional option for career advancement.
