American to add seasonal Chicago O’Hare – Quebec City service

Envoy Air's 4th E175, delivered December 16, 2015

American Airlines is planning to add summer American Eagle seasonal service between the Chicago (O’Hare) hub and Quebec City.

The seasonal route will operate daily between June 6 and September 3, 2019 according to Airline Route.

The new route will be operated with Embraer 175 aircraft operated by Envoy Air.

Envoy is undergoing a fleet transformation, welcoming brand-new, two-class Embraer 175 (E175) aircraft to the fleet. The spacious 76-seat E175 offers a seamless travel experience to customers connecting to and from mainline flights. We currently expect to operate at least 84 E175 aircraft by the start of 2020.

As we welcome the large E175 regional jets to the fleet, Envoy continues to operate a substantial fleet of jets, including the Bombardier CRJ700 (63/65 seats), the Embraer 145 (50 seats) and the Embraer 140 (44 seats).
