The companys more than 14,000 employees provide regional flight service to American Airlines under the American Eagle brand and livery and ground handling services for approximately 15 airlines, including American.

Envoy is headquartered in Irving, Texas with large operations in Americans hubs and gateways, including Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago, Miami, New York and Los Angeles. On April 15, 2014 the company changed its name to Envoy Air Inc. to distinguish the company from the American Eagle brand, under which several carriers operate regional flight service for American.
American Airlines Group is the holding company for American Airlines, US Airways and Envoy. Together, the airlines operate an average of nearly 6,700 flights per day to 339 destinations in 54 countries.
