You may not have heard of Skywest Airlines, but for just under four decades they have been flying passengers to several cities in the United States. Skywest has been able to increase the areas it serves by partnering with various other regional airlines. Do you have travel plans for the Western U.S.? Do you need to do some flying in Utah, California, or maybe Colorado? You will find flying with Skywest Airlines a very convenient choice. To assist you in planning your next flight, here are some details about this leading airline.
“Safety First” is a slogan Skywest Airlines is proud of and the statistics bear out their safety record. During the 30 plus years they have been in operation, Skywest Airlines has accrued a very low accident rate and, as a matter of fact, they have never received a citation for a fatal accident. Their fleet of aircraft is exceptionally reliable and up-to-date. These aircraft, which are inspected at the minimum of one time each week, include: Brasilia EMB120 ER, Canadair Regional Jet 900, Canadair Regional Jet 700 ER, and the Canadair Regional Jet 200. Even though statistics bear out the fact that it is 32 times safer to fly in an airplane than to be in a car, a lot of people remain unconvinced. Be that as it may, it still stands to reason that it’s much wiser to fly with a regional airline because not only is it safer, it’s a lot faster.
Tickets can be obtained through a partner for a Skywest Airlines flight. Because it operates at the behest of its partners AirTran, Delta, Alaska, and United Airlines, Skywest Airlines does not issue tickets or take reservations directly. Call the airlines, go to their websites or visit their ticket counters to make a reservation. You may also be able to book a Skywest flight by visiting the website of a discount broker or travel service. Be sure the company or website you are dealing with is legitimate if you are not dealing directly with an airline.
Aside from its partnerships with major airlines such as Delta and United, Skywest Airlines also owns another regional airline, Atlantic Southeast. Atlantic Southeast has a very comprehensive website with their motto, “Empower People to Stay Connected.” It’s purpose is to keep you informed on their most recent offers as well as those of its partner airlines. The primary service area for Atlantic Southeast is the Midwest and Southeast regions of America, whereas Skywest Airlines remains focused on the Western portion of the U.S. If you need to fly to Sacramento, San Diego, or San Antonio from the Houston, Texas area, you can now choose ExpressJet, which recently became a subsidiary of Atlantic Southeast Airlines. If you are looking for a good selection of options in the regional airline venue, you could do no better than planning your flight with Skywest Airlines or one of its partners.
Skywest Airiness, as we’ve seen in this article, has been doing an impressive job at providing regional flights to passengers over the last few decades. There’s no question that major airlines such as Delta and United are very capable of flying in and out of the major airports, such as Denver, Baltimore, New York, and San Francisco but, if you want to fly to a smaller airport, you may not find a major airline to use. Skywest Airlines, along with its partners, Atlantic Southeast Airlines, and subsidiaries, give you access to many different regional airports that you won’t find served by the bigger airlines.
