American Eagle Airlines plans to move its company headquarters to the Dallas suburb of Irving in July.

American Eagle, owned by American Airlines Group, has been housed at American Airlines’ corporate headquarters in Fort Worth since the regional carrier was founded in 1998.

American Airlines needs more room for employees transferring to Fort Worth from US Airways' headquarters in Tempe, Ariz.

The new American Eagle facility will house 600 employees, the operation's control center, and its pilot and flight attendant training facilities.

In addition to operating regional flights, Eagle performs baggage handling and gate operations for other carriers.

American Eagle Airlines will change the company’s name to Envoy on April 15, but the airline will retain American Eagle branding.
