Alaska Airlines will start new non-stop service between Paine Field-Snohomish County Airport and Anchorage on November 30th.
Paine Field (PAE) resumed commercial airline services in 2019. It had been used for years as a assembly test and location facility by Boeing.
On the operations side, Alaska/Horizon began using a new 74,000 square foot hangar and maintenance building on the Paine Field site this year that may house up to four E175 planes at once.
"For Economic Alliance Snohomish County, the City of Everett and Paine Field, we are thankful for the rich history of business and community engagement provided by Alaska Airlines. This announcement is another example of Alaska Airlines' willingness to be forward thinking, valuing its customers to create desired opportunities for travel and connection," said Garry Clark, president and CEO at Economic Alliance Snohomish County. "This is extra sweet due to Alaska Airlines' history: Anchorage served as the first flight location for Alaska Airlines and its founder Linious McGee back in 1932. Snohomish County is grateful for Alaska and its continued efforts at Paine Field."
