Alaska Airlines Website
Our partnership with Alaska Airlines began on May 14, 2011 with the launch of daily routes along the West Coast using the 70-seat Bombardier CRJ700. On July 1, 2015, the 76-seat Embraer E175 was also added to our Alaska Airlines operation.

SkyWest Airlines' first American Eagle flight took off in November 2012 from the Los Angeles, Calif. (LAX) hub. All flights are onboard the 50-passenger CRJ200 aircraft and are concentrated in the Western U.S.
The relationship between SkyWest Airlines and Bombardier Aerospace began in 1987, when the Regional Jet Division of the Canadian aircraft manufacturer, Canadair Ltd., began soliciting orders for its new and radical Canadair Regional Jet. SkyWest took delivery of their first regional jet from Bombardier in 1994 and currently operates a fleet of nearly 300 jets.
Delta Air Lines Website
SkyWest's relationship with Delta Air Lines dates back to 1987, shortly after SkyWest transitioned its fleet from 19-passenger Metroliners to 30-passenger, Embraer manufactured EMB 120 Brasilias. Currently, SkyWest operates nearly 600 daily flights for Delta from hubs in Salt Lake City, Utah and Minneapolis, Minn.
SkyWest utilizes the Embraer manufactured E175 and historically used the EMB120. For SkyWest, adding the EMB to the fleet in 1986 meant the chance to expand service and the first SkyWest flight attendants. It also offered a seamless product to SkyWest’s partners, more comfort for passengers, as well as the additional safety and service delivered by SkyWest’s InFlight team.
