SkyWest Airlines to Build New Aircraft Maintenance Hangar at Tucson International Airport

SkyWest Airlines, which operates through partnerships with United Airlines, Delta Air Lines, American Airlines and Alaska Airlines, plans to move and build a new aircraft maintenance hangar at the Tucson International Airport (TUS).

SkyWest will lease 14 airside acres, part of the Aeronautical Way 50 site at TUS, and build a nearly 200,000 square-foot MRO (maintenance, repair, overhaul) facility.

SkyWest Airlines, with nearly 15,000 employees, carried more than 21 million passengers in 2020 and 43 million passengers in 2019. Headquartered in St. George, Utah, its fleet of over 450 aircraft connects passengers to over 230 destinations throughout North America.

SkyWest has operated in Tucson as a subtenant of Bombardier at TUS.  SkyWest needed to secure a larger facility and chose to continue their operations at TUS with a long-term lease to accommodate their current needs and future growth. The full expansion over five years will add jobs primarily in operations, mechanics, general assembly and support staff.

The total capital investment over the next five years will be approximately $41 million, resulting in a total economic impact of $105 million.

Partners in the project include the Tucson Airport Authority, Arizona Commerce Authority, Pima County and City of Tucson.
