SKYWEST DELTA CONNECTION REPORTS JANUARY TRAFFIC

 ST. GEORGE, Utah, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- SkyWest Delta Connection today reported a 10.5 percent traffic increase for the month of January. The airline enplaned 115,411 passengers, pushing up revenue passenger miles (RPMs) to 22.5 million. Available seat miles (ASMs) also increased over the same month last year -- up 7.2 percent to 54.8 million. Load factor likewise increased 1.2 percentage points to 41.1 percent for the month.
 "To say that January weather was challenging would be a gross understatement. Snow, rain, sleet, hail, fog, flooding, ice storms, blizzards and sub-zero temperatures don't mix well with scheduled air service," said SkyWest Senior Vice President of Marketing Ron Reber. "Aside from that, we had a pretty good month. RPM growth continues to outpace ASM growth even in the worst of conditions."
 SkyWest Airlines (NASDAQ: SKYW) 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 more than 510 flights daily.
