Atlantic Southeast Airlines Launches New Brand Identity

New Look Reflects Airline's Strong, Forward-Moving Direction Within Industry

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - May 21, 2010) -  Atlantic Southeast Airlines, a wholly owned subsidiary of SkyWest, Inc. (NASDAQ: SKYW), today announced a new brand identity that reflects its strong, forward-moving direction within the regional airline industry.

"Our people have made big improvements in reliability over the past three years, and we consistently surpass monthly and quarterly goals set by our major partners for on-time performance, flight completion and customer satisfaction," said Brad Holt, president and COO. "We will continue to build on this momentum, and our new brand identity reflects that commitment."

Atlantic Southeast operates more than 80 percent of its flights through Atlanta -- the busiest airport in the world -- and has improved overall on-time performance by approximately 10 percentage points over the past three years.

Holt continued, "We are serious about consistently providing quality service for our passengers and our mainline partners. Our new brand identity illustrates that we have expanded beyond a single mainline partner and that we're ready to take a leadership position in the regional airline industry."

In addition to the new brand logo, Atlantic Southeast's website, www.flyasa.com, has been completely redesigned and includes the airline's "Live connected." brandscape video. The site is designed to provide useful, easy-to-find information for passengers and features the new Being Atlantic Southeast blog that explores stories of life behind the scenes and on the front lines of Atlantic Southeast Airlines, in addition to useful tips for travelers. Downloadable elements of the new Atlantic Southeast brand identity are also available on the website.
