Virgin to add turbo prop fleet under alliance with Skywest

Filed under Uncategorized

The Virgin Blue Group and Western Australia’s Skywest Airlines have just
announced signing a new strategic alliance, which will see Skywest operate
a fleet of up to 18 new DJ branded turbo prop aircraft, leased from Avation

The 10-year agreement will see the first DJ turbo prop come into service
mid this year (and another 3 by the end of 2011) and operate on new and
existing routes around the country.

“The combined strength of our networks, along with the additional capacity
we will deliver with new aircraft, will provide travellers with more
frequent flights, better schedules and competitive fares,” said DJ ceo and
managing director, John Borghetti.
