“American will begin transferring 47 Bombardier CRJ-700 aircraft from Envoy to PSA, allowing each airline to more efficiently focus their operations on a single aircraft type –Embraer aircraft at Envoy and Bombardier aircraft at PSA. Consolidating our fleets will lower costs for American Airlines Group and simplify the regional feed for our mainline operations.” – Kenji Hashimoto, senior vice president – regional carriers
Beginning mid-2015, PSA will commence the induction of the 47 additional Bombardier CRJ-700s, further expanding its fleet of Bombardier jets. While the exact dates and the rate at which these planes will transfer to PSA are not yet determined, the transfer of aircraft from Envoy is anticipated to be complete by the end of 2016.
To date, PSA has taken delivery of 6 of the 30 Bombardier CRJ 900 NextGen aircraft, previously awarded by American Airlines. Delivery of these aircraft will continue at a rate of 2 to 3 aircraft a month until completion in mid 2015- when the transfer of these CRJ-700s will commence. Consequently, PSA’s current rate of hiring for regional pilots, flight attendants, A&P mechanics, and other positions will persist throughout 2016 to allow for the continued expansion of the airline.
