 ST. GEORGE, Utah, April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- SkyWest Delta Connection


(NASDAQ: SKYW) today reported its March 1992 passenger traffic, indicating a near-record month enplanement figure.
 Passenger boardings for March totaled 121,844, a 15 percent increase over March 1991 and just 844 enplanements shy of an all-time record in any given month. Revenue passenger mile (RPM) growth again outpaced available seat mile (ASM) growth, resulting in a 42.9 percent load factor -- up 1.7 percent over the prior year.

"Our airline's performance continues to outpace the economic recovery of our service area." He also says the airline industry's steps to simplify fares "will not only stimulate traffic but also enhance SkyWest's ability to manage its traffic mix."
