SKYWEST AIRLINES REPORTS RECORD ENPLANEMENTS

              SKYWEST AIRLINES REPORTS RECORD ENPLANEMENTS
    ST. GEORGE, Utah, July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- SkyWest Delta


Connection reported record enplanements for the month of June 1992. The airline boarded 131,353 passengers during the month, a 22 percent increase over the same month last year and nearly 9,000 more than the previous record set last August. The airline also broke a single-day enplanement record June 19 with 5,342 passengers boarded.
    The airline continued its 11-month growth pattern with a load factor of 45 percent, an increase of 4.2 percentage points over the prior year.  Revenue passenger mile (RPM) growth also continued to outpace available seat mile (ASM) growth.  RPMs grew 24.3 percent to 25 million, while ASMs grew only 12.8 percent to 55.6 million.
   SkyWest attributes the performance to fleet changes in key markets.  The airline is replacing 19-seat aircraft with 30-seat, cabin-class aircraft, according to SkyWest Senior Vice President Marketing Ron Reber.  "The performance reflects strategic placement of 30-passenger aircraft in markets where prudently managed discount capacity and cabin-class service is luring passengers from their cars and our competitors."
    SkyWest Airlines (NASDAQ: SKYW) operates as a Delta Connection under a marketing agreement with Delta Airlines.  The regional airline serves 42 cities in the western United States.  Operating 50 aircraft, the airline completes over 510 flights daily.
