On Sunday, March 13, Envoy reached a significant milestone – operating 1,000 revenue flights with our new Embraer 175 (E175) aircraft without taking a single cancellation! Flight 3113 from Northwest Arkansas (XNA) to Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) had the honor of being the 1,000th flight – leaving a full six minutes ahead of schedule, operated by Captain John Harrison, First Officer Neil Kliebert and Flight Attendants Asia Vien and Jackie Sotelo-Morales.
“I’m incredibly proud of our entire team,” said Jim Winkley, Vice President E175 Aircraft. “This kind of reliability on a brand new fleet is unheard of, and takes tremendous teamwork and commitment. Countless hours went into preparing and gaining expertise operating this new aircraft – and I have no doubt that our team will continue improving in the months to come.”
“The key to our business is to consistently provide safe, high-quality and reliable service,” added President and CEO Pedro Fábregas. “And Envoy is demonstrating that each and every day. Congratulations to our entire team on this impressive milestone!”
