Great news for the Envoy team, as American Airlines announced that it is exercising options for 15 additional Embraer 175 (E175) aircraft and that they will be operated by Envoy. These new aircraft are expected to begin arriving at a rate of three per month, starting in early 2020. 

This is in addition to the 25 E175s currently on order that begin arriving later this month and continue through 2019. By mid-2020, Envoy’s E175 fleet will have nearly doubled to 84 jets from where it is today. In total, Envoy’s fleet numbers more than 170 aircraft, including over 100 44 and 50-seat Embraer regional jets. This new aircraft will position Envoy to continue growing and expanding its service to American.

“I am grateful to each of you for all you do to contribute to our success and earn American’s continued support,” said President and CEO Pedro Fábregas in a letter to Envoy employees. “Growth like this is only possible when we pull together to maintain a safe, reliable, high-quality and cost efficient operation for our customers.” 

“Each new aircraft we welcome to the Envoy fleet represents more jobs and greater opportunity for all of us. We now have nearly 17,000 employees, flying to more than 150 destinations and providing ground handling in 112 airports – and today’s news ensures that we’ll continue to grow in the years ahead,” he concluded.

The company’s more than 14,000 employees provide regional flight service to American Airlines under the American Eagle brand and livery and ground handling services for approximately 15 airlines, including American.

Envoy is headquartered in Irving, Texas with large operations in American’s hubs, including Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago, Miami, New York, and Los Angeles. On April 15, 2014 the company changed its name to Envoy Air Inc. to distinguish the company from the American Eagle brand, under which several carriers operate regional flight service for American.

Together, the airlines operate an average of nearly 6,700 flights per day to 339 destinations in 54 countries.
