Operators of the Boeing 717-200 commercial jet are fairly limited around the world. This is due to the fact that only 156 Boeing 717s were produced and that one airline (Formerly AirTran, now Delta Air Lines) operates over 50 percent of the Boeing 717 fleet. There are a total of 5 Boeing 717-200 operators around the world. On December 28th, 2014 AirTran Airways was "shutdown" by Southwest Airlines. In 2015 Blue1 was sold to CityJet and the Blue1 name was retired. All of Blue1's 717-200s were leased to other operators of the jet (Delta, Qantas, Volotea). Below is a list of the Boeing 717-200 operators that we have located.

Other Names for the Boeing 717-200 Operators
The Boeing 717-200 jet aircraft has a few different names that it is called by. If you are learning more about the aircraft you will find the following names for the airplane:
- Boeing B-717-200 Operators: the "B-717" or "B-717-200" name is used by many, including the FAA, to refer to the aircraft.
- Boeing B712 Operators: B712 is the ICAO code for the airplane that is used by air traffic controllers, airlines and others.
- Boeing 717 Operators (with out the -200): Many call the 717-200 just the 717, which is the main aircraft program the plane is in (the only plane in the 717 program). "717" is also the IATA code for the jet. Boeing's KC-135 tanker was the first aircraft that was called the 717 by Boeing, so Boeing gave the 717 jet the 717-200 model name.
