SkyWest Plans to Purchase Additional Airplanes

St. George – SKYWEST, INC. entered into an agreement with Embraer for the purchase of 100 new E175 dual-class regional jet aircraft. Of the 100 aircraft, 40 are considered firm deliveries and the remaining 60 aircraft are considered conditional until SkyWest enters into capacity purchase agreements with other major airlines to operate the aircraft. Deliveries for the 40 firm aircraft are anticipated to begin in the second quarter of 2014 and continue through mid 2015.

The aircraft will be configured in 76 seats in dual-class. The agreement also includes the option for an additional 100 E175 aircraft and would be valued at $8.3 billion if all 200 aircraft are ordered. The initial 40 aircraft will be operated by SkyWest under a new agreement with United Airlines, Inc.

“We are pleased with the agreement between Embraer and SkyWest that represents the culmination of a long and creative process for the acquisition and long-term management of the initial 40 firm aircraft to be operated for United,” says Bradford R. Rich, SkyWest president. “The selection of the E-Jet was based on the customer acceptance, fuel efficiency and attractive operating costs that are offered by this equipment type.”
