SkyWest Airlines will bring new daily American Airlines flights between St. George, Utah and Phoenix beginning Nov. 4, 2016.
“We’re pleased to add a third destination and major airline partner for St. George travelers, and Phoenix is a great option as a key American Airlines hub,” said Chip Childs, SkyWest CEO.
“In addition to the United and Delta service we currently provide, this flight makes it easier than ever for St. George passengers to connect to destinations across the globe on American Airlines. There’s never been a better time to Fly SGU.”
St. George Mayor Jon Pike commented:
“The citizens of southern Utah are fortunate to have SkyWest, the largest regional airline in the world, headquartered right here in St. George. We appreciate having them as our air service partner and are excited about the economic opportunities that this American Airlines Phoenix flight will bring to our region.”
From Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, travelers can access over 300 daily departures and 79 nonstop destinations around the world on American Airlines.
The daily roundtrip flight is ideally timed for business and leisure travelers, providing optimal connection opportunities in Phoenix.
The once daily flights are one hour five minutes and will be scheduled as follows beginning November 4:
- St. George to Phoenix, departs at 8.00 am, arrives at 08.05 am (daily)
- Phoenix to St. George, departs at 5.00 pm, arrives at 07.05 pm (daily)
The new service to Phoenix, operated by SkyWest Airlines as American Eagle, provides a third major carrier and destination to St. George travelers and more access than any other community of its size.
The flight 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.
