Skywest Cuts Durango-SLC (DL), and Rochester, MN-Den(UA)

Tue Sep 28, 2021 11:06 pm

SkyWest citing not enough traffic to justify continuing them. Both are on SkyWest CRJ-200's.
I think these were subsidized? Both are still served on the AA flag.

Both are at-risk flights for SkyWest which means if they aren't making a profit on it they will drop it. There is no subsidy but OO bares all the risk.

Durango will continue to receive service from AA and UA (ai might be missing another airline) and RST maintains service on DL, AA and SY.

Yep....under the at risk arrangement, Skywest can drop service with proper notice.

If the mainline carrier has an interest in continuing to serve the market, they could do the flying under a capacity-purchase agreement instead of at-risk. (either with OO or another of their regional partners).
