It’s hard to believe that this month marks one year since United (Operated by SkyWest Airlines) began offering service at SHD! As many of you have now experienced for yourselves, flying out of the Valley has never been more attractive.
We are in the mood to celebrate our success over the past year and offering free travel seems like an excellent way to do it. Stay tuned for information below on how you can enter to win $500 towards your next trip from SHD!
It’s difficult to comprehend how much of an impact that the new service has had over the course of the year but one thing is for sure – SkyWest has delivered on everything they promised to bring to our community, plus some. Their reliability has been impeccable. Passenger experiences have been A+.
And my very favorite part is that YOU have been able to travel to where you need to go within the United network easily and stress-free.
Since the partnership with SkyWest began, passenger traffic has increased 260% overall! With just nine months of the new service in 2018 we surpassed passenger traffic records held for nearly two decades and I’m happy to report 2019 is shaping up to be even better!
You can read more about the transformation we have experienced in the two articles below recently published by the Daily News Record.

SVRA Finds Success with SkyWest (Published 4/9/19)
We’re incredibly excited about our partnership with SkyWest Airlines and want to thank you all for your support. The sky is truly the limit on what we can accomplish together, however, there is still work to be done. We as a community must continue to demonstrate that this region prefers local air service for the market to truly realize it’s full potential.
To that end, we are asking for your help. We want to hear from you regarding the service over the past year – what you like about it, how often you have flown with us and, just as importantly, why you may not have been able to take advantage of it.
This information is also very useful when we periodically meet with airlines so your feedback could have a direct effect on the future of air travel at SHD. And you can win a $500 travel voucher from your favorite airport… Did I mention that part?
THANK YOU for making the past 12 months a great first year for United service at SHD!
