Western Australian regional airline Skywest has announced a number of changes to its flight schedule from 1 April 2009. Additionally, Skywest has reported that in results released by the Australian Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics for December 2008, Skywest achieved the highest on-time departures in Australia of any airline.

The route changes will see: a new three-times weekly service linking Geraldton and Carnarvon with Karratha; an increase in direct Perth to Karratha jet services, taking the total to five a week; the resumption of services to Darwin (four times per week) operating either via Broome and/or Kununurra; and the resumption of services between Exmouth and Broome.

In the on-time performance results, in December Skywest achieved a figure for on-time departures of 86.1% and for on-time arrivals of 85.7%, compared with the national average of 79.0% for departures and 77.7% for arrivals.

The airline's chairman Jeff Chatfield commented, “We are delighted to have expanded the airline network. We remain committed to providing a first-class service to our customers and are pleased to have yet again achieved the highest on-time departures in Australia. We will continue to strive to improve service quality.”
