  • Read more 17APR2014: Its Hello "Envoy" as American Eagle Airlines brand is retired
    American Eagle Airlines (MQ, Dallas/Fort Worth) has officially transmogrified itself into Envoy Air (MQ, Dallas/Fort Worth) as of April 15. Using its fleet of forty-seven CRJ-700s, fifty-nine ERJ-140s and 118 ERJ-145s, the airline has now joined the likes of ExpressJet Airlines (EV, Houston Intc'l), Republic Airlines (YX, Chicago O'Hare), and Skywest Airlines (USA) (OO, Salt Lake City) in operating American Eagle services on behalf of American Airlines (AA, Dallas/Fort Worth).

    Marking the occasion, Envoy Air president and CEO Pedro Fábregas said the name change marked the beginning of an exciting new chapter in the carrier's history.

    "As shared previously, our name change is driven by our need to differentiate ourselves from the other regional carriers flying as American Eagle. There currently are multiple other regional airlines flying as American Eagle. As the mainline integration continues, additional regionals now flying for legacy US Airways using the US Airways Express brand will take on the American Eagle brand. Our new name will help us avoid any potential confusion among the public or regulatory agencies," he told Envoy employees in a letter.

    American Airlines Group’s US Airways (US, Phoenix Sky Harbor) unit has two regional carriers, Piedmont Airlines (PDT, Salisbury) and PSA Airlines (JIA, Dayton James M. Cox), which currently operate under the US Airways Express banner. They too, at some stage, will begin operating under the American Eagle brand name.

The new merged airline will retain the American Airlines brand, be a member of Oneworld alliance and lead by current US Airways CEO Doug Parker with American Airlines CEO Tom Horton becoming chairman of the merged airline. American Airlines parent AMR debtors will own 72% of the airlines with US Airways shareholders receiving the remaining 28% of the stock. AMR currently operates under Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and will emerge from bankruptcy as part of the merger.

Fully owned regional carriers American Eagle Airlines (MQ, Dallas/Fort Worth), Piedmont Airlines (PDT, Salisbury) and PSA Airlines (JIA, Dayton James M. Cox) will continue to operate as separate carriers operating under the American Eagle brand going forward. American currently operates 604 aircraft with 277 aircraft operated by regional carriers. US Airways operates 337 aircraft with regional carriers operating 283 aircraft on its behalf. The combined fleet of both carriers will be approximately 1500 aircraft including regional partners according to ch-aviation data as of today. The two airlines have announced they continue to operate all hubs at Charlotte, Chicago O'Hare, Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles Int'l, New York JFK, Miami Int'l, Philadelphia Int'l, Phoenix Sky Harbor and Washington National.
