Envoy Air made this announcement:
We’re pleased to share that American Airlines Group will add 15 Embraer 170 (E170) aircraft and assign them to Envoy starting in November. These aircraft are in addition to the three new Embraer E175 deliveries previously announced.
The Company’s broader goal is to gradually replace all Embraer 145 (E145) aircraft and focus exclusively on our large regional jet (E170/E175) operation over time. We are planning to transfer 15 E145s to Piedmont. The E170 and E175 constitute a single fleet type from an operational perspective and this move will allow us to simplify everything from training, to supply chain, operations and more. This announcement will increase Envoy’s large regional jet fleet to 101 E175s and 27 E170s.
Envoy plays an important role in American’s regional operation, operating almost a third of all American Eagle-branded regional flights. We’re committed to evolving our company to help American succeed in its broader network goals.
