SkyWest To End Modesto-LAX Flights

’Modesto’Citing “high fuel prices and insufficient revenue,” Utah-based airline SkyWest will be ending its non-stop flight service from Modesto to Los Angeles. The four times daily $245 roundtrip on a 30-seat turboprop will cease to fly this June. What impact this severing of a daily connection to and from Los Angeles reaps upon the Central Valley bedroom community, home to late great Grandaddy and Gallo Wines, and its residents remains to be seen. As of press time, $51 non-refundable round trip fares on Greyhound Buslines are still available.
