“We’re pleased to bring more service than ever to our St. George passengers,” said Chip
Childs, SkyWest, Inc. President and CEO. “With access to a fourth major airline hub at LAX, we’ve
opened the West Coast and beyond for St. George travelers. In short, no matter which direction
you’re headed, we’ve got you covered.”
“We’re excited once again to see SkyWest offer another destination through the St. George
Regional Airport,” said St. George Mayor Jon Pike.
“This further expands the opportunities for residents and visitors to fly to four major hubs and three major airlines via SkyWest and St. George.
We greatly appreciate the partnership between SkyWest Airlines, Washington County and St. George to make this possible.”
From United’s Los Angeles hub, travelers can access over 150 daily departures to 77
nonstop destinations around the world. St. George customers who fly United may also accrue MileagePlus Miles as members of United’s MileagePlus loyalty program.
The new 90-minute United Express service to Los Angeles will be operated by SkyWest
utilizing the 50-seat Canadair Regional Jet (CRJ200). SkyWest is a leading CRJ200 operator and has been named the manufacturer’s most reliable operator in North America five times.
Customers flying SkyWest-operated flights out of St. George Regional Airport currently
enjoy United Airlines service to Denver, Delta Air Lines service to Salt Lake City, American Airlines service to Phoenix, and with the new service in October, Los Angeles will become the fourth major airline hub served from SGU.
