Right, I'm after a fair bit of information here but I'm hoping it should be fairly easy stuff for some of you.

I was wondering... Who are the largest two or three RJ operators in each global region??

Also (if applicable), where are their main hubs and what is the primary equipment that they employ (CRJ's/ERJ's etc)

Cheers

I know in the US the three largest regional jet operators are.
1. XE (Expressjet) 244 jets all EMB-145LR/XLR.
2. MQ (American Eagle) 228 jets (excluding the ATR 72s) 203 EMB-135/140/145s,25 CRJ-700.
3. OO (Skywest) 227 jets (excluding EMB-120s) CRJ200/700/900.

This list doesn't count aircraft planned for delivery, options, or write offs just the current fleets. I used Wikipedia backed up with airlines websites and other online services.

Sadly, the numbers for XE used to be 274... All EMB-135/145... now it is as Vlflyer stated...

244 jets... BUT, they are all: EMB-145EP/LR/XR's...

the only aircraft that went to the sun were the EMB-135ER/LR's....

The largest operators of the ERJ-145 family are...

XE (244 frames)
MQ (199 frames, also 25 CR7s)
RP (78 frames, also 18 CR2s)
YS (37 frames, also 12 E-Jets and maybe a couple of F70s)
5D (37 frames, also 5 190s)

The largest operators of CRJs are

OO (221 frames)
EV (163 frames, owned by OO)
9E (140 frames)
OH (122 frames)
YV (96 frames)
QK (73 frames)
ZW (69 frames)
XJ (60 frames)
CL (54 frames, also 18 ARJs)

The largest operators of E-Jets are

RW (67 frames)
S5 (60 frames)
CP (35 frames)
LO (16 frames)

The take home message here, perhaps, is that there are very few RJs outside of North America and Europe.

Quoting ThePinnacleKid (Reply 2):

I knew XE parked their 135s but wasn't 100% sure if they operated any 145s outside the LR/and XR, My bad.

If you want to get really technical MQ doesn't have any 140s, as far as the FAA and the aircrafts airworttiness certificantes. MQ operates 25 CRJ 700, 32 EMB-135LR, 59 EMB-135KL (aka. EMB-140) and 112 EMB-145.

This doesn't count the 10 EMB-135LRs that are parked, 4 to 5 EMB-145LR that are in MX getting reconfigured to MQ standards (planes being returned from lease from AX [aka. Trans States Airline]), and the 1 EMB-135LR that was written off after MX ran it into a hanger in CMH.

Ahhh fantastic. That was probably a much simpler and better way of organising the information that I was after!  Silly Thanks

I guess that is due to geography. Not many other places with such a concentration of such wealthy cities within a relatively small area (region).

In that case can you list the top ten odd operators over the whole world ex. North America and Europe? Figures for aircraft perhaps not so important here. Just the airline names and which regions they serve.

ZW actually has 70 frames, not 69

AC Jazz has 73 CRJs (57 -100/200 and 16 -705 which is a modified -900 with fewer seats).
AC mainline has 45 E-190s and 15 E-175s.

I guess I counted wrong; I show 69 (70 at one point, but they got rid of 402 last year)

I'll gladly take a crack at it (corrections welcome)

Brazilian Air Force (not civilian, I realize): 24 ERJs
DJ: 19 E-Jets
GS: 10 ERJs, 9 190s, 19 total
YB: 14 CRJs
CM: 14 190s
MU: 6 146s, 1 CRJ, 7 ERJs, 14 total
4Z: 8 ARJs, 5 ERJs, 13 total
P5: 11 190s
NC: 11 ARJs
AE: 7 190s, 3 F100s (debatable whether this is a regional jet), 10 total
SC: 9 CRJs
PU: 7 CRJs

We never got rid of AC 402, it is very much in active service to this day.

I believe that 135 also took a Chautauqua 145 out of service for a little while.

Weird... my production list shows it in China, but the registration is definitely still active per the FAA-- and obviously you know what aircraft ZW has.

I see what you are looking at now. There was a plane that had registration number N402AW that was a 737, which is the plane thats in China now, which is probably where you are getting confused. The CRJ-200 with that N number is still flying, US Bank is the Leaseholder of the plane.

It's worse than that... I see the 733 with HU, but I also see the CRJ with VD. Take a look.

This site you are looking at appears to me to be unreliable. It seems like it can be edited by anyone with a sign on, much like a wiki entry.

Notice that it still shows 4 146's active with Air Wisconsin. The 146's were retired years ago. What is worse is one of the 146's listed is ship 606, which was the first 146 to be retired after the US contract.

I also looked at the Midwest Airlines fleet. All the MD 80's are retired, but they all still show in service with Midwest.


Lesson from this is not to trust this web site.

It's generally pretty accurate-- AFAIK, it cannot be edited by just anyone (at least I've never seen a way to do it). That said, it does better with larger aircraft and airlines (for instance, it has DL's 767s exactly right).
