SKYWEST AIRLINES CONTINUES STRONG GROWTH IN NOVEMBER

 ST. GEORGE, Utah, Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- SkyWest Delta Connection reported a new all-time high load factor in the month of November 1993. Load factor increased 5.7 percentage points over the prior year to reach 49.9 percent, breaking the record set last August at 49.1 percent.
 The record results from a 19.7 percent increase in revenue passenger miles (RPMs) vs. a 6 percent increase in available seat miles (ASMs). RPMs reached 29.8 million; ASMs reached 59.8 million. Enplanements were up 14.5 percent over last year to 148,621.
 The performance continues a 33-consecutive-month growth trend. Commenting on the performance, SkyWest Senior Vice President Customer Services Ron Reber said, "Traffic obviously reflects an exceptionally strong Thanksgiving travel period which was bolstered by American Airlines' flight attendant strike. Advance bookings in both our winter and high desert markets indicate we should have a strong December as well."
 SkyWest Airlines (NASDAQ: SKYW) operates as a Delta connection carrier under a marketing agreement with Delta Air Lines. The regional airline serves 40 cities in the western United States. Operating 19 EMB-120 Brasilias and 31 Fairchild Metroliners, the airline completes over 510 flights daily.
