On April 17, 1968, three "local service" airlines in the western U.S. merged to form Air West:
Pacific Air Lines, Bonanza Airlines and West Coast Airlines.
The initial Air West fleet included Boeing 727-100s, Douglas DC-9-10s, Fairchild F-27s, and Piper Navajos. The first new addition to the Air West fleet was a Douglas DC-9-30 which had been ordered by Bonanza Airlines.

Hungry for another adventure in the airline industry, TWA's former owner Howard Hughes sought the airline in 1968, and the deal was finalized in 1970. The airline was renamed Hughes Air West and its call sign became "Hughes Air." It expanded to several cities in the western United States, Canada and Mexico. With the new yellow paint scheme, unveiled 28 September 1971, the airline began calling itself Hughes Airwest, two words instead of the initial three word name.
