SkyWest has crunched the numbers for May


SkyWest has reported 145,300 block hours in May 2018, compared to 155,800 block hours in May 2017, a decrease of 10,500 or 6.7%. The net decrease was consistent with SkyWest's fleet transition plan to improve the mix of aircraft in its fleet by adding new E175 aircraft while reducing its 50-seat jets.

The year-over-year net change was primarily driven by approximately 6,400 additional block hours from its E175 aircraft (includes the E175 aircraft and the E175 SC aircraft) and a decrease of approximately 16,900 block hours from its other aircraft types.




In May 2018, SkyWest's dual-class aircraft represented approximately 53% of SkyWest's total block hour production for the month compared to approximately 50% for the month of May 2017.

SkyWest reported 726,200 block hours for year-to-date May 2018, compared to 760,600 block hours year-to-date May 2017, a decrease of 34,400, or 4.5%. This net change was primarily driven by approximately 32,900 additional block hours from its E175 aircraft and a decrease of approximately 67,300 block hours from its other aircraft types.

SkyWest had 85,000 departures in May 2018 compared to 93,700 in May 2017, a decrease of 8,700, or 9.3%. Additional flight statistics for May are included in the accompanying table.
