Skywest has begun to accept resumes again after a long respite. Delta Airlines has assigned additional aircraft and routes to Skywest after the dust settled from its merger with Northwest Airlines.
Skywest has announced that the minimum acceptable flight experience is 1,000 hours, although they have agreed to accept substantially less if an applicant is a graduate of ATP’s Regional Jet Standards Certification Program.
Delta Air Lines recently reversed a decision to allocate 15 Bombardier CRJ900s to Mesaba Airlines and instead will only award five of the aircraft to the carrier. Now Delta Connection partner Skywest will operate the remaining 10 aircraft, possibly with its subsidiary ASA.
