GoJet Airlines has announced the addition of 20 new aircraft to its Bombardier CRJ-550 fleet. This follows the airline’s 10-year agreement with United Airlines to operate an original 54 CRJ-550 aircraft.
Deliveries are expected to begin in the summer of 2020, bringing GoJet’s total CRJ-550 fleet count to 74 by 2021. The aircraft is designed for business and leisure flying and has “revolutionised the regional flying experience with enhancements unavailable on other regional jets,” the airline commented.
This extended fleet will serve flights to Washington Dulles and Newark from Cleveland and continue routes to its Florida destinations; Fort Lauderdale, Fort Meyers, Orlando and Tampa from the Ohio city.
GoJet and United Airlines launched the first CRJ-550 service in October 2019 from Chicago and recently began to operate from United’s hub in New York/Newark. There are plans to extend operations from its Washington Dulles hub also.
“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,” commented Rick Leach, President and Chief Executive Officer of GoJet Airlines.
