US carrier Mesa Airlines has expanded its agreement with United Airlines to operate three additional Embraer 175 aircraft, bringing the total number of United Express aircraft operated by the Phoenix-based airline to 68.

In October, Mesa announced it had signed a deal to add 15 new aircraft scheduled for delivery in 2016, which has now increased to 18.

The carrier currently operates a fleet of 30 E175 aircraft and 20 Bombardier CRJ700 aircraft under the United Express brand.

Paul Foley, executive vice-president and chief operating officer of Mesa, said the new aircraft will lead to new job opportunities at the airline including maintenance positions.
