SALT LAKE CITY -- SkyWest Airlines has announced it will cut 170 positions from its Salt Lake City workforce.
The Deseret News reports (http://bit.ly/nONMhU ) that some baggage handler and ticket agent jobs at Salt Lake International Airport will be eliminated.
Airline spokeswoman Marissa Snow says the layoffs are a result of service reductions on several daily flights.
She says the cuts would be effective late next month for the SkyWest employees who serve Delta Connection flights.
St. George-based SkyWest employs about 11,000 workers in more than 160 locations nationwide, including about 3,000 in Utah.
