The consistent growth of Envoy’s fleet has allowed Envoy to reach an important milestone in the operation.  Starting June 8, Envoy will begin operating more than 1,000 flights per day under the American Eagle brand. Envoy Air Inc., is the largest wholly owned regional airline subsidiary of American Airlines Group (AAG).

 This is an important step for Envoy, as one of the company’s key strategic goals is to grow the fleet and consistently increase the number of flights available for American’s customers.  

It’s a positive sign for all employees, but especially for pilots seeking a long-term career as a commercial airline pilot. As a wholly owned subsidiary, Envoy pilots are guaranteed to “flow through” to fly for American in seniority order, without having to complete an additional interview. 

American recently announced plans to add 15 more 76-seat, two-class Embraer 175 aircraft to the Envoy fleet during 2019. These aircraft are in addition to the 10 Embraer 175 aircraft currently scheduled to begin arriving this fall.

As part of their announcement, American will also retain 15 options for additional Embraer 175 aircraft, that they may choose to exercise and place with Envoy at a future date. The firm orders will bring Envoy’s E175 fleet to 69 by the end of 2019.

Envoy’s President and CEO, Pedro Fábregas, attributes growth to the team’s performance and commitment to providing outstanding service to American’s customers.  He also emphasized that every aircraft that is added to the fleet represents more jobs and greater opportunities for everyone at Envoy.  “I want to thank each of our employees for continuously contribute to our success. To be able to operate 1,000 flights a day is a collective achievement that all our employees should feel proud to celebrate,” said Fábregas.

Right after American announced its plans to place 15 more Embraer 175 (E175) aircraft with Envoy next year, American confirmed that Envoy can expect another 15 Embraer 145 (E145) aircraft to join the fleet in the coming months, with the first aircraft arriving after this summer and the remainder transitioning in monthly through early 2019.

“Together, our team has built the logistical capability and technical expertise to scale up the size of our E-Jet fleet,” said Dee Temples, Senior Vice President of Air Operations. “These latest decisions to place additional aircraft to our Envoy’s fleet reflect the confidence of American Airlines in our people.”

Currently, Envoy is actively hiring for the pilots, flight attendants, mechanics and airport employees needed to support its growing operation at http://www.envoyair.com/careers/ACN

Envoy Air Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of American Airlines Group (NASDAQ: AAL) operating nearly 180 aircraft on about 900 daily flights to more than 150 destinations. 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. The company was founded in 1998 as American Eagle Airlines, Inc. following the merger of several smaller regional carriers to create one of the largest regional airlines in the world. 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. American Airlines Group is the holding company for American Airlines, US Airways, and Envoy. Together, the airlines operate an average of nearly 6,700 flights per day to 339 destinations in 54 countries.
