SkyWest Airlines has reduced its Salt Lake fares to locations in Utah, Idaho and Nevada, the regional carrier said.

Effective March 1, travelers will pay a one-way fare of $89 to St. George, $78 to Cedar City, $79 to Vernal, $85 to Elko, Nev., $95 to Ely, Nev., and $89 to Twin Falls, Idaho."By introducing these midrange fares, we can once again provide an economical means of transportation from Salt Lake City for the point-to-point passenger," said Ron Reber, the regional airline's vice president of sales and market planning.

SkyWest, a Delta Connection carrier, provides Salt Lake City with 47 daily roundtrip flights throughout eight Western states. Similar price reductions are being evaluated in the Salt Lake-Grand Junction, Colo., and Salt Lake-Reno, Nev., markets also, Sky-West said.
