Endeavor Air (9E, Minneapolis/St. Paul) has announced it will be opening a new crew and MRO base at Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson Airport in early June the Delta Air Lines (DL, Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson) unit's President and Chief Executive Officer, Ryan Gumm, has said.

In a video presentation to Endeavor's employees, Gumm said the base will grow to host at least seventeen lines of CRJ-200 flying, with nearly 200 pilots, 100 flight attendants, and close to sixty maintenance team members required to spool up operations in the southeast.

“This new base is great news for our employees,” John Daly, Endeavor's Chief Operating Officer, said. “Many of our crew members live and work in the southeastern part of the country, so they know this market and all that is required to be successful there. This is a great acknowledgment of our efforts and commitment to delivering excellent service to our customers.”

Endeavor Air currently operates forty-four CRJ-200LRs and eighty-one CRJ-900s under the Delta Connection banner from crew bases at Detroit Metropolitan, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York JFK, and New York La Guardia.
