Skywest To Get A320s

Wed Aug 09, 2006 5:22 pm

Skywest Airlines (Australia) is set to get between one and four A320s from Avion Groupd (Star Air, Star Air Germany) for use in its network. Seems that they have been awarded a number of countracts related to the huge O&G and mining developments in northern WA for shuttling employees between Perth and Carnavon, Broome, Port Hedland etc

Bet this thread gets a lot of hits...I had to check myself for curiousity (US airline wise!)...
These A320s from Star Air Germany...would these be the USA3000 ones or the Air New Zealand one? Too early to tell?

I thought of the United Express Carrier out of LAX  Silly . But really, maybe putting "Skywest (Australia)" in the thread title would be better.

I agree , often posters just start threads with Skywest or Comair and you are never sure whether they are talking Skywest Australia or US , or Comair South Africa or US ... anyway , back on topic ... while I am aware that the mining contracts can be quite lucrative do they really need something that size ? How many people are they transporting at any one time on these contracts ?
