SKYWEST AIRLINES REPORTS RECORD ENPLANEMENTS

 ST. GEORGE, Utah, Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- SkyWest Delta Connection (NASDAQ: SKYW) again reported record enplanements for the month of July 1993. The airline boarded 143,834 passengers during the month, a 7.8 percent increase over the same month last year.
 The airline also broke revenue passenger miles (RPMs) and available seat miles (ASMs) records. RPMs increased 11.7 percent over the prior year to reach 29.1 million while ASMs increased 7.1 percent over 1992 to just under 61.1 million. These figures resulted in a load factor of 47.6 percent, an increase of 1.9 percentage points over last year.
 SkyWest Senior Vice President Marketing Ron Reber said traffic in July is always challenging to project. "Again, our performance was better than we anticipated but came as no surprise," he said. "We are constantly improving our ability to match aircraft -- in both frequency and capacity -- to markets, which is key to making the most of heavy summer traffic. I would expect similarly strong results in August."
 SkyWest Airlines operates as a Delta Connection carrier under a marketing agreement with Delta Airlines. The regional airline serves 40 cities in the Western United States. Operating 51 aircraft, the airline completes more than 510 flights daily.
