SkyWest airlines, founded by LDS Church member Ralph Atkin in 1972 and still run by his family, has just added service between San Francisco and Fresno, and recently between Salt Lake City and Santa Barbara, Kansas City, Memphis and El Paso. All this expansion will help SkyWest's partners, Delta and United, fill out their networks, while also helping SkyWest double in size in the next two years.
