SkyWest Airlines, Inc. Key Developments

Federal Aviation Administration Proposes $320,000 Civil Penalty Against SkyWest Airlines

The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposed a $320,000 civil penalty against SkyWest Airlines for allegedly operating an aircraft that was not in compliance with federal aviation regulations. The FAA alleges SkyWest failed to inspect certain main landing gear components on four Bombardier CL-600 jets at required intervals for wear that could lead to an unsafe condition or failure of a component. SkyWest allegedly operated the aircraft on more than 6,700 flights when the inspections were overdue. SkyWest has 30 days from receipt of the FAA's enforcement letter to respond to the agency.

Federal Aviation Administration Proposes $911,000 Civil Penalty Against SkyWest Airlines

The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposed a $911,000 civil penalty against SkyWest Airlines for allegedly operating two aircraft that were not in compliance with federal aviation regulations. The FAA alleges SkyWest failed to inspect the cargo door skins on two Bombardier CL-600 jets at required intervals. The inspections were required by an Airworthiness Directive (AD) issued in 2006 after cracks were discovered in the aluminum cargo door skin of a CL-600 during fatigue testing. The FAA determined that regular inspections of that type of aircraft for similar cracking could help prevent a situation in which a cracked skin could lead to an accident or unsafe condition. SkyWest allegedly operated the aircraft on a total of 15,969 flights when the inspections were overdue. SkyWest has 30 days from receipt of the FAA's enforcement letter to respond to the agency.

SkyWest Airlines to Purchase Eight New, Dual-Class Embraer E175 Jets

SkyWest Airlines reported that it will purchase eight new, dual-class Embraer E175 jets to fly for Alaska Airlines. SkyWest said the new planes, to be delivered in 2016, will replace eight older regional jets it currently flies for the Seattle-based carrier. The regional carrier will begin flying the planes for Alaska on July 1 with the start of new service from Seattle to both Milwaukee and Oklahoma City, and between Portland, Oregon and St. Louis. The 76-seat E175 jet will feature 12 seats in first class and 64 in coach. Onboard amenities include Alaska Beyond Entertainment featuring free short subject videos and movies and TV shows for purchase direct to customer devices. Inflight Internet access is also available, as well as Alaska Beyond Delicious which offers Pacific Northwest-inspired food and beverages. Additionally, customers seated in first class will enjoy 110 volt power in every seat.
