United debuts Embraer 175 regional jets

United Airlines has introduced Embraer 175 aircraft to its regional jet service from Chicago to Boston and Washington.

United Express carrier SkyWest began using the 76-seat jet to Boston on Monday. The jet debuted on flights to Reagan National on Saturday.

“We are thrilled to welcome the E175 to United Express,” said Sandra Pineau-Boddison, United’s senior vice president of United Express. “This fantastic new aircraft will enable us to better serve our customers, particularly in high-frequency business markets.”

The jet will be added to flight from Chicago to Atlanta, Minneapolis/St. Paul and New York LaGuardia in June. United expects to have 70 E175 aircraft in its United Express fleet by the end of 2015.
