PR Newswire

ST. GEORGE, Utah, July 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SkyWest, Inc., (NASDAQ:SKYW) ("SkyWest") today reported 149,300 block hours in June 2018, compared to 159,200 block hours in June 2017, a decrease of 9,900 or 6.2%. 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 6,100 additional block hours from its E175 aircraft (includes the E175 aircraft and the E175 SC aircraft) and a decrease of approximately 16,000 block hours from its other aircraft types.  

In June 2018, SkyWest's E175 aircraft represented approximately 25% of SkyWest's total block hour production for the month compared to approximately 20% for the month of June 2017.   

SkyWest reported 875,500 block hours for year-to-date June 2018, compared to 919,800 block hours year-to-date June 2017, a decrease of 44,300, or 4.8%. This net change was primarily driven by approximately 39,000 additional block hours from its E175 aircraft and a decrease of approximately 83,300 block hours from its other aircraft types.

SkyWest had 87,000 departures in June 2018 compared to 96,000 in June 2017, a decrease of 9,000, or 9.4%. Additional flight statistics for June are included in the accompanying table.
