ExpressJet is ending its branded service. The culprit–high fuel prices. The ExpressJet situation is a bit complicated, so please bear with me.
ExpressJet is a regional airline that has flown under its own name and for big airlines. Today ExpressJet announced it will stop flying under its own name, but will continue flying under the Continental Express brand. The move does not directly affect Springfield-Branson service, but will apparently affect the Tulsa airport. ExpressJet provides Tulsa with service to points west and Canada.
