Our vision is to be the safest, most reliable, most successful regional airline in the world for our customers, employees and shareholders.
Envoy Air Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of American Airlines Group (NASDAQ: AAL) operating nearly 180 aircraft on about 900 daily flights to more than 150 destinations. The company’s more than 14,000 employees provide regional flight service to American Airlines under the American Eagle brand and livery and ground handling services for approximately 15 airlines, including American.
The company was founded in 1998 as American Eagle Airlines, Inc. following the merger of several smaller regional carriers to create one of the largest regional airlines in the world. Envoy is headquartered in Irving, Texas with large operations in American’s hubs, including Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago, Miami, New York, and Los Angeles.
On April 15, 2014 the company changed its name to Envoy Air Inc. to distinguish the company from the American Eagle brand, under which several carriers operate regional flight service for American.
American Airlines Group is the holding company for American Airlines, US Airways, and Envoy. Together, the airlines operate an average of nearly 6,700 flights per day to 339 destinations in 54 countries.
Envoy is undergoing a fleet transformation, welcoming 40 new two-class Embraer 175 (E175) aircraft over the upcoming months, with options of receiving up to 90 more. The E175 represents what our president, Pedo Fábregas, calls “the future of Envoy,” offering a seamless travel experience to customers connecting to and from mainline flights.
As we welcome the large E175 regional jets to the fleet, Envoy continues to operate a substantial fleet of jets, including the Bombardier CRJ-700 (63/65 seats), the Embraer 145 (50 seats) and the Embraer 140 (44 seats).
Envoy is hiring more than 350 pilots and 400 flight attendants this year to operate our expanding fleet.
