SkyWest Inc., the parent of St. George, Utah-based SkyWest Airlines and Atlanta-based ExpressJet Airlines, said it has “reached an understanding” with Delta Air Lines (DL) enabling it to take delivery 34 Bombardier CRJ700s/900s while removing 66 older CRJ200s from its fleet.

SkyWest did not explain the origin of the five CRJ700s and 29 CRJ900s slated to join its fleet incrementally from this month to June 2013. The regional operator said it expects to incorporate the aircraft into existing agreements with DL, enabling it to operate them on Delta Connection-branded flights through 2022.
