Embraer announced on Wednesday that SkyWest Airlines, a regional carrier, will buy an additional 19 of its E175 regional jets to fly for Delta Air Lines as Delta Connection flights.

SkyWest said it had entered into a capacity purchase agreement with Delta to operate the new planes. The airliners will have a two-class configuration with a total of 76 seats. Each will also be outfitted with Gogo Wi-Fi in-flight Internet.

Deliveries are slated to begin in August 2016, and all 19 will be delivered by mid-2017.

SkyWest said it will continue to deliver “what our partners need,” namely “solid, reliable service.”
