Envoy Air Inc., an aerospace company and a wholly owned subsidiary of American Airlines Group, recently announced plans to invest in its aircraft maintenance operations in Springfield, Missouri. This investment will allow Envoy to maintain more modern aircraft, which will create more jobs in the Springfield region, as well as additional potential for enhancements to air service in the future.
“We’re excited to see Envoy Air grow and expand in the Springfield region,” said Missouri Governor Mike Parson. “These new jobs and investment are great news for the state of Missouri that will help reinforce our connectedness to neighboring states and the entire country.”
The installation, which will be owned by the airport and leased to Envoy, will allow Envoy to service more modern Embraer E-175 aircraft that hold 76 passengers. It will have space to house three aircraft inside, with additional room for more aircraft outside, dedicated areas for parts storage, training, employee parking and administration.
“This was a team effort and we are excited these next-generation aircraft will be maintained and operated in Springfield for decades to come,” said Airport Director Brian Weiler.
