19 E175 jets for SkyWest Airlines

SkyWest orders 19 Embraer jets


Brazilian planemaker Embraer said last week its firm order backlog reached $17.8 billion at the end of the third quarter, including a newly announced order by SkyWest for 19 of its E175 jets.  Its backlog grew by $500 million from the previous quarter and Embraer delivered 43 aircraft in the third quarter, compared with 33 in the year-ago period, totalling 105 aircraft delivered year-to-date.


The planemaker confirmed that SkyWest had ordered 19 of its E175 jets for $1.1 billion, with deliveries expected to start in the final quarter of 2024. The new aircraft will be flown by United Airlines under a capacity purchase agreement, Embraer said.

In the third quarter of the year, SkyWest has reported a net income of $23 million, compared to net income of $48 million for the same period in 2022.  Revenue was $766 million in Q3 2023, down $23 million, or 3%, from $789 million in Q3 2022. 


SkyWest deferred recognizing $57 million of revenue during Q3 2023 compared to recognizing previously deferred revenue of $13 million during Q3 2022. The amount of revenue deferred during Q3 2023 was driven by modified terms relating to fixed monthly cash payments under SkyWest’s previously announced amended flying contracts.
 
Commenting on the results, Chip Childs, Chief Executive Officer of SkyWest, said, “Our teams continue to deliver an exceptional product and operating performance. We are pleased with the improving trajectory of our business, strong demand for our product, and steady progress toward stabilization of our pilot hiring and retention. I want to thank our amazing team for delivering outstanding operations in the third quarter.”

Operating expenses were $717 million in Q3 2023, up $3 million from $714 million in Q3 2022, driven by increases in employee compensation, including higher pilot pay scales. Higher labor 
costs were partially offset by lower aircraft rent expenses due to the early lease buyouts on 35 CRJ aircraft for the nine months ended September 30, 2023, and lower operating costs associated with a 10% reduction in Q3 2023 block hour production compared to Q3 2022.

Alaska Air orders eight new E175 aircraft for operation by Horizon Air


 Earlier this week, Alaska Air Group announced an order for eight additional new E175 aircraft to be operated by Horizon Air. The new aircraft will be flown exclusively for Alaska Airlines by Horizon.

Horizon is transitioning out of flying the Q400 and moving to a single fleet of E175s to be flown to the more than 45 cities Horizon serves throughout the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, California, the Midwest, and British Columbia and Alberta in Canada.

“The E175 is an extremely efficient aircraft,” said Nat Pieper, senior vice president of fleet, finance and alliances for Alaska Airlines. “The jet is the perfect aircraft to serve Horizon’s regional network in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Our guests will enjoy a consistent, three-class cabin experience as they travel from smaller communities to catch flights across Alaska’s larger hubs or on one of our many global airline partners.

Horizon will take delivery of nine E175s over the next year as part of a previous order that also includes three deliveries in 2025. With this order by 2026, if not sooner, Horizon will have a fleet of 50 E175s.

Mark Neely, VP Americas, Embraer Commercial Aviation, said, “The E175 is the backbone of the US regional network, feeding airport hubs across the country as well as producing the connectivity all communities need to thrive, both economically and socially. While this market is currently under pressure, it is essential that carriers are able to provide these essential services to the entire United States. The Embraer E175, with 85% market share in its segment, is keeping the US on the move and in touch.”

The Alaska Airlines’ E175 experience:

Seat pitch is 31 inches in the Main Cabin, 34 inches in Premium Class and between 36 and 38 inches in First Class.
All guests flying on the E175 will enjoy a window or aisle seat.

Alaska Airlines adds the Embraer 175 jet to state of Alaska flying

Alaska Airlines will start flying the Embraer 175 jet aircraft in the state of Alaska starting in October 2020. The E175, operated by regional partner Horizon Air, will serve select markets in Alaska.

"Alaskans who have flown the E175 jet in the Lower 48 have frequently asked when they might see the plane in the state, and we're thrilled the time has come," said Marilyn Romano, regional vice president. "This jet gives us the flexibility to increase daily frequency between Anchorage and Fairbanks up to seven times a day, and to provide year-round service to King Salmon and Dillingham. In time, the new mix of aircraft will unlock other markets in the state for future service."

The E175 aircraft compliments the current Boeing 737 mainline flying in, to and from the state of Alaska and is perfect for many communities where larger jets are not the best option.

Delta Air Lines flight DL5763 from John Wayne Airport, Santa Ana, California to Seattle, Washington had to make an emergency landing in Reno, Nevada after extreme turbulence injured five passengers.

Passengers on the jet say the flight was more like a rollercoaster ride during the afternoon of on Wednesday, February 13th. Some said the aircraft nosed dived twice during the ordeal that lasted several minutes. Images from inside the aircraft show drinks splashed up on the ceiling, panels dislodged and some oxygen masks dangling down.

The crew of the Embraer E175 aircraft being operated by Compass Airlines on behalf of Delta, reported hitting the extreme turbulence at around 34,000 feet and was carrying fifty-nine passengers and four crew.
