SkyWest, Inc., (NASDAQ:  SKYW) last week reported approximately 147,800 block hours in January 2018, compared to approximately 153,700 block hours in January 2017, a decrease of 5,900 or 3.8%. The net decrease was consistent with SkyWest's fleet transition plan to improve the mix of aircraft in its fleet by adding new E175 aircraft while reducing its 50-seat jets.  The year-over-year net change was primarily driven by approximately 7,200 additional block hours from E175 aircraft and a decrease of approximately 13,100 block hours from other aircraft types.   

In January 2018, SkyWest's dual-class aircraft represented approximately 53% of SkyWest's total block hour production for the month compared to approximately 47% for the month of January 2017.        

SkyWest had approximately 84,300 departures in January 2018 compared to approximately 87,500 in January 2017, a decrease of 3,200, or 3.6%.
