The CRJ-200 is again making an appearance on some Delta-marketed flights. As first reported by Enilria, the aircraft type has re-appeared on select flights from the carrier’s Detroit and Salt Lake City hubs.

SkyWest – which operates the flights under the Delta Connection banner – confirmed that the CRJ-200 would be utilized on an “as-needed basis” as the company works to keep up with summer travel demand. The regional airline noted that the 50-seat aircraft would only be used in June and July adding, “all associated aircraft substitutions are temporary in nature and will not affect flight schedules or frequencies.”

In December 2023, Delta removed the last CRJ-200 from its scheduled network. The airline recently mandated that all scheduled routes have a premium cabin, which included regional markets. The CRJ-200s have a 50-seat single-class configuration.

SkyWest is planning to introduce the CRJ-550 in early July on select routes from Delta’s Salt Lake City hub. The aircraft is configured with 10 first class seats along with 40 in economy.

“As we continue to transition our CRJ550 fleet and to ensure adequate fleet resources during the busy summer travel season, SkyWest may utilize the CRJ200 in some Delta Connection markets in June and July on an as-needed basis,” SkyWest told AirlineGeeks in a statement.

The regional carrier already operates roughly 80 CRJ-200s for United Express.

According to Flightradar24 data, a handful of SkyWest CRJ-200 are operating Delta routes. N936EV was recently returned to service on Tuesday after over four months in storage. The aircraft resumed revenue service on Thursday to Alpena and Escanaba, Mich. from Detroit.
