SkyWest Inc. of St. George continues to grow with the announcement last week that it has ordered nine E175 jet airliners from Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer. Delivery of the jests is expected to begin this year. Based on current pricing, the order is worth $422 million.
“We’re pleased to continue adding new E175 aircraft under long-term contract to our increasingly efficient, agile and flexible fleet,” said Chip Childs, SkyWest CEO and president. “We appreciate Embraer’s strong partnership and remain impressed with the Embraer product.”
