Skywest reviews fare structure
SKYWEST Airlines announced today that it had received approval from the Department for Planning and Infrastructure to increase its full economy fares by 4%, the first such increase in almost 3 years.
Skywest has also reviewed its other fares on the coastal network. A part of the fare review will also see a new ‘Web Fare’ implemented. Skywest’s new WEBBIT fare will be a new fare that can be purchased in advance and online, and will be lower than any existing fare level.
“Passengers who plan their travel in advance will benefit from cheaper fares” Paul Daff, CEO Skywest Airlines said.
All changes are effective 10th November, with the new WEBBIT fare available from 17th November for travel from 01 February 2009 subsequent to the Skywest’s ‘Summer Sale’.
Skywest WEBBIT fares will be as follow:
Perth to Albany or Geraldton starting from $135 one way, including taxes
Perth to Kalgoorlie, Esperance or Kalbarri starting from $163 one way, including taxes
Perth to Monkey Mia, Carnarvon or Learmonth starting from $222 one way, including taxes
