Envoy Air will cease operations with its ERJ 145s

Regional carrier linked to American Airlines will complete the withdrawal of the last jets in May, replaced by the E175, also from Embraer

After two decades in service, Envoy Air is about to end the operation of Embraer ERJ 145 jets. The regional airline, part of the American Eagle network, said last week it would say goodbye to the 50-seat jet by the end of the month.

According to Planespotters, there were six active ERJ 145s until a few days ago, out of 111 aircraft that have already passed through the carrier – in addition to 59 ERJ 140s, a rare variant already retired.

When it was still called American Eagle, the airline received its first ERJ 145 from Embraer on February 28, 1998.

The ERJ 145s will be replaced by the E175, also from Embraer, which will be passed on by American Airlines. The popular aircraft offers increased capacity (26 more seats) as well as a superior level of comfort.

“The E145 has served Envoy well for many years and we’re excited for the ability to focus on a single fleet type with our growing Embraer 170/175 fleet of aircraft,” the airline said in a statement.

These aircraft will make Envoy a stronger, leaner company and help us to continue to build Envoy as a critical part of the American Eagle network.”

Envoy’s current fleet includes 20 E170s, the smallest variant of the E-Jet, and 107 E175 jets. The airline is one of three that make up the American Eagle network, along with PSA and Piedmont Airlines.
