As we reach the midpoint of 2016 and look ahead to the coming year, we’re pleased to share more good news about Envoy’s fleet. American Airlines has advised us that additional Embraer 145 (E145) aircraft will return to Envoy in 2017, in addition to the two that returned last month and we are currently flying in support of the summer schedule.
“These E145s will mean that all Embraer aircraft operated as American Eagle service at Dallas/Fort Worth will be flown and maintained by Envoy employees,” said Dee Temples, Senior Vice President Air Operations. “These aircraft – in addition to the new Embraer 175s (E175s) we continue to receive each month – represent opportunities for all of the employees who support them at American’s largest hub.”
“For pilots, Envoy’s significant presence at DFW and ORD is perfect,” added Ric Wilson, Vice President Flight Operations. “When it comes to ease of commuting or quality of life within the community, Dallas/Fort Worth and Chicago are hard to beat.”
The schedule for these aircraft is currently being finalized, but we expect to start receiving them in February 2017, and continuing through June.
