SkyWest Airlines and Bombardier have agreed to convert a firm order for 18 CRJ200s held by SkyWest’s new Atlantic Southeast Airlines division to positions on 70-seat CRJ700s. As part of the deal, SkyWest has also placed firm orders for another four CRJ700s, all to fly under its Delta Connection contract. The deal coincided with a U.S. bankruptcy court’s approval of the new 15-year contract, negotiated as part of SkyWest’s agreement to buy Atlantic Southeast Airlines on September 7. The court approval also releases to Delta the $100 million in escrow funds SkyWest deposited at the close of the ASA acquisition.
