Appreciation Week is a unique time at SkyWest Airlines. It’s a full week that is set aside to celebrate the more than 14,000 people that make SkyWest the industry’s best. This year the week was filled with food, games, photo booths, visits from executive leaders, and much more. It’s a time to have fun and to recognize the incredible work that SkyWest people do every day.
During the past year, SkyWest teams have done amazing things by working together. This summer saw a new record level of flying with more than 2,500 daily flights! More than a dozen new aircraft have rolled out of the factory and joined the SkyWest fleet so far this year. A new maintenance base is opening in San Luis Obispo, California. Teams from across SkyWest have given back to their communities through charitable causes including Habitat for Humanity, Wings for Autism, and many more. And the list of accomplishments just continues to grow!

Games, photos, fun and plenty of food were just some of the ways SkyWest’s more than 12,200 team members celebrated each other and their amazing work as part of Appreciation Week 2017. This year, SkyWest employees have already helped successfully operate more than 500,000 flights while adding 56 aircraft to the fleet and welcoming two new domiciles. Impressive numbers made possible by the best workforce in the industry!
Throughout the week, team members submitted photos of their daily operations from across the country, then voted for their favorites. Stunning shots of flight decks, airplane tails and maintenance hangars were submitted and voted on. Not only do SkyWest airline professionals have talent in the industry, they also are handy with a camera.
