Alaska Airlines unveils new services from Everett Paine Field

Jan 17, 2018 No Comments by

Alaska Airlines has announced which destinations will be served from Everett’s Paine Field (IATA: PAE) in Washington State, USA. The airline had previously announced its intention to serve Paine Field, home to the Boeing factory where the 747, 777 and 787s are manufactured, however the destinations were unknown. Starting from late 2018, Alaska Airlines will offer non-stop  jet service from Paine Field to eight cities;  Las Vegas (LAS), Phoenix (PHX), Portland (PDX), Los Angeles (LAX), Orange County-Santa Ana (SNA), San Diego (SAN), San Fransico (SFO) and San Jose-CA (SJC). There will be a total of thirteen daily departures to these cities. It’s part of the “go-to airline for any living on the West Coast” strategy in a statement to media.

Flights will be operated by Alaska’s regional subsidiary Horizon Air with Embraer E175 aircraft offering 76 seats in a 3 cabin First/Premium/Economy configuration.

Paine Field at present has no regularly scheduled commercial passenger airline service. A new passenger terminal is being built by a New York based private equity firm Propeller Airports in collaboration with Snohomish County and will be ready in time for Alaska’s new service. This is great news for aviation enthusiasts who can now fly directly to Boeing’s factory by passing Seattle-Tacoma (SEA) airport.

United Air Lines has also signaled its intention to commence flights to Paine Field however at this time the destinations it will serve have not been announced.
