GoJet Airlines expands fleet of CRJ-550 aircraft

GoJet Airlines has announced it is adding 20 new aircraft to expand its fleet of Bombardier CRJ-550 aircraft, the company said.

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.

The CRJ-550 is a two-cabin 50-seat regional aircraft designed for business and leisure travelers who want true-first-class seating, Wi-Fi, more leg room and enough space for every customer to bring a roller bag on board. Since entering service in October 2019, the CRJ-550 has revolutionized the regional flying experience with enhancements unavailable on other regional jets.

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.

GoJet expects to start taking deliveries of these additional aircraft in the summer of 2020.

GoJet Airlines is a regional airline currently operating as United Express and Delta Connection. GoJet serves over 5 million passengers annually, with more than 250 daily flights providing service to over 80 destinations.
