SkyWest has placed an order for 19 new E175 jets with Embraer, which will be operated in the United Airlines network.

The $1.1bn order takes the total number of E175 jets operated by SkyWest to 90.

The 70-seat aircraft will fly exclusively with United under a Capacity Purchase Agreement (CPA) and will be delivered in a three-class configuration. Deliveries will begin Q4 2024.

President and CEO of SkyWest Chip Childs said, “SkyWest is already the largest E175 operator in the world, and when this order is delivered, we will have over 250 E175s. We look forward to continuing to improve the passenger flying experience with enhanced comfort and reliability.”

Martyn Holmes, CCO, Embraer Commercial Aviation, added, “We are pleased to build upon our superb partnership with SkyWest. The E175 is truly a versatile aircraft, the backbone of North American regional aviation.”
