American Airlines' regional subsidiary, PSA Airlines, named Dion Flannery as its new president effective August 31.
Flannery, who was recently president of US Airways Express, is succeeding Keith Houk who is retiring at the end of the year.
"Keith has played a tremendous role in the successes of PSA during his nine years leading the company," said American senior vice president Kenji Hashimoto in a statement. "Dion is a well-qualified and experienced successor to continue the growth of the high-quality and cost-effective operation Keith has established at PSA."
PSA currently operates under the US Airways Express brand but will be transitioning to the American Eagle brand. The carrier operates 35 CRJ-200 and 14 CRJ-700s and will be receiving 30 new CRJ-900s starting in June 2014.
