Exhibit 99.1


EXPRESSJET REPORTS FIRST QUARTER 2010 RESULTS

                HOUSTON, April 28, 2010 – ExpressJet Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: XJT), parent company of regional and charter airline operator, ExpressJet Airlines, Inc., today reported a first quarter loss of $16.1 million or $0.93 per share.  Excluding special items, ExpressJet’s loss totaled $12.7 million or $0.73 per share.

                Driving ExpressJet’s financial performance during the quarter was seasonally lower flight activity, cancellations and delays caused by severe winter weather in the Northeast and Midwest, cost increases that outpaced revenue growth and record low attrition.

                “Our employees did a great job of operating the airline in light of the severe weather conditions of the first quarter,” said Pat Kelly, Interim President and Chief Executive Officer.  “Unfortunately, our financial results were disappointing.  It is clear now that to return to sustained profitability, we need to reduce our costs further,” Kelly added.

                On April 19, ExpressJet announced the Board of Directors selected industry veteran, Thomas M. Hanley as President and Chief Executive Officer effective immediately.  Tom assumed the position from Interim President and Chief Executive Officer, Pat Kelly.  Pat will return to his position on ExpressJet’s Board of Directors effective May 1, 2010.

                “I would like to thank the ExpressJet Board for selecting me to lead the company and Pat Kelly for his leadership,” said Tom Hanley.  “My goal will be to maintain ExpressJet’s status as a leader for operational excellence while returning the company to sustained profitability.  The keys to success at ExpressJet will be the support and professionalism of our people, as we continue to focus on safety, reliability, customer service, and renew our emphasis on cost control,” added Hanley.
