  • Envoy Air — an American Airlines' subsidiary — is tripling pay for pilots who pick up trips in July.

Envoy Air — a regional carrier under American Airlines — is tripling the pay of pilots who pick up trips from July 2 to July 31, according to CNBC.

The airline has declared "super critical coverage" for all bases over the period and "any open time flown during this time frame will be paid at 300%," CNBC reported, citing a note to pilots.

"As part of the proactive strategy to run a reliable schedule during the peak summer travel season, Envoy is offering pilots triple pay to pick up uncovered trips on their days off in the month of July," said the airline, per CNBC. The bonus will only be offered if there are open trips available.

Envoy's move comes amid a messy summer travel season with flight delays and chaos across the industry as demand returns to pre-pandemic levels. Issues faced by airlines include staff — including pilot — shortages and bad weather.

"There are not enough people working to handle the number of people flying," Helane Becker, a senior research analyst at the investment bank Cowen, told Insider's Marguerite Ward on Monday.

With the long Fourth of July weekend coming up, the industry is bracing itself for another round of disruptions. Over the Juneteenth and Father's Day weekends, US airlines canceled or delayed more than 35,000 flights collectively.

Almost 900 flights across the US were canceled on Sunday alone, according to data from flight tracking website, FlightAware.

Envoy Air did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment that was sent outside regular business hours.
