Envoy already operates more than 100 E175s under the American Eagle brand.

Deliveries will begin in the fourth quarter of 2023, Embraer says, with Envoy’s E-Jet fleet set to exceed 140 aircraft by the end of 2024.

Cirium fleets data shows E175s make up the vast majority of Envoy’s current fleet of around 130 aircraft, alongside a few E170s.

Envoy retired all of its ERJ-family aircraft in recent years, as it shifted focus to larger types.
