Today, our new fleet of Embraer 175 (E175) aircraft officially launched scheduled revenue service, with Flight 3313 from Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) to Little Rock (LIT). “Our very first scheduled E175 flight left DFW a few minutes early and arrived LIT ahead of schedule,” said Jim Winkley, Vice President E175 Aircraft. “Kudos to everyone at both stations for their effort – and with a speedy 34 minute turn at DFW, it was off again to Savannah (SAV). Now that’s teamwork!”
The first four of Envoy’s E175 aircraft are hard at work today, carrying passengers to LIT, SAV, Des Moines (DSM), Memphis (MEM), Northwest Arkansas (XNA) and Corpus Christi (CRP). “We welcomed the first flight back from LIT with a full water cannon salute,” added Jim. “So our crews and passengers could share in the celebration.”
With five E175s now in service, one completing its conformity check and Wi-Fi installation in Abilene (ABI), and approximately two more arriving every month, the future is bright for Envoy!
