SkyWest Airlines and ExpressJet Airlines release September results


SkyWest has issued its latest figures and in September that company reported 138,900 block hours during the month, compared to 145,200 block hours in September 2017. This was a decrease of 6,300 or 4.4%.  The net decrease was consistent with SkyWest's fleet transition plan to improve the mix of aircraft in its fleet.

In September 2018, SkyWest's E175 aircraft represented approximately 27% of SkyWest's total block hour production for the month compared to approximately 21% for the month of September 2017.       

SkyWest reported 1,323,600 block hours for year-to-date September 2018, compared to 1,389,700 block hours year-to-date September 2017, a decrease of 66,100, or 4.8%.  This net change was primarily driven by approximately 60,600 additional block hours from its E175 aircraft and a decrease of approximately 126,700 block hours from its other aircraft types.

SkyWest had 81,500 departures in September 2018 compared to 87,200 in September 2017, a decrease of 5,700, or 6.6%.  Additional flight statistics for September are included in the accompanying table.
