In 2010, Air Canada leased the Bombardier Q400s and began sub-leasing them to Sky Regional.[7] The aircraft had been operated by Lynx Aviation of Denver.[8] They were delivered to Sky Regional between November 2010 and the beginning of 2011. The aircraft are configured with 74 seats,[9] similar to the Porter fleet.[10] The planes are painted in Air Canada Express livery.

Air Canada started to transfer its 15 Embraer 175 planes to Sky Regional in April 2013 and completed the transfer in September 2013.[1] In the fall of 2015 Sky Regional added an additional 5 Embraer 175 aircraft to its fleet. These aircraft were previously operated by Azul Brazilian Airlines.
