SKYWEST AIRLINES REPORTS MAY TRAFFIC

 ST. GEORGE, Utah, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- SkyWest Airlines (NASDAQ: SKYW) today reported continued growth for the month of May. Revenue passenger miles (RPMs) grew 6.1 percent to 24.1 million, while available seat miles (ASMs) grew 6.0 percent to 57.4 million. Passenger boardings totaled 125,258, a 4.2 percent increase over May 1992. Load factor remained steady at 42 percent for the month.
 Management noted growth was softer than expected due to the late delivery of a newly purchased EMB-120 Brasilia. "We had expected to operate another Brasilia line throughout the month which would have produced stronger traffic; instead, we only operated the additional line a few days in May," said SkyWest Senior Vice President Marketing Ron Reber. "We are pleased, however, that RPM growth continued to outpace ASM growth."
 SkyWest Airlines operates as a Delta Connection carrier under a marketing agreement with Delta Air Lines. The regional airline serves 42 cities in the western United States. Operating 50 aircraft, the airline completes over 510 flights daily.
