American Airlines Group (AAG) has assigned six more Embraer 175s to US regional carrier Envoy Air’s fleet.   

In a statement released on its website, the carrier said that American Airlines Group (AAG) would assign six more Embraer jets to Envoy in the coming months.

Once added, this would bring the regional carrier’s total fleet commitments to 134 – 107 E175 and 27 E170 aircraft.

“As we transition away from the E145 and focus on our large RJ operation, American continues to invest and have faith in Envoy’s ability to offer safe, reliable and cost-effective service to its customers,” said Envoy Air’s Senior Vice President, Air Operations, Dee Temples. “Envoy has invested significantly in the resources and infrastructure needed to support our Embraer E-Jet fleet, and deliver outstanding service to American’s customers.”

Envoy Air is one of three regional carriers that operate flights for American. The other two are Piedmont Airlines and PSA Airlines. Envoy Air also currently operates 22 Embraer E145s, which have an average age of around 19 years.
