Alaska Airlines today announced that tickets are now on sale for 18 daily nonstop flights between Paine Field-Snohomish County Airport in Everett, Washington, and eight West Coast cities. The first day of scheduled service is Feb. 11, 2019, subject to government approval.
Along with providing low fares and great service, Alaska is eager to make air travel easier and more convenient from Paine Field – with its brand new commercial airport terminal – and help ease traffic congestion on the roads: More than one million travelers who live north of Seattle will enjoy shorter commutes to Paine Field instead of heading farther south to Sea-Tac Airport. The new airport and service will also add jobs and economic growth to Snohomish County.
Alaska is also excited to offer more options to its guests. The airline recently acquired five additional gate times from Southwest Airlines at Paine Field, which would allow Alaska to offer up to 18 daily nonstop departures in early 2019 upon receipt of required government approvals. This would mean more frequencies to several of the previously announced destinations: Las Vegas; Los Angeles; Orange County, California; Phoenix; Portland, Oregon; San Diego; San Francisco; and San Jose, California. The all-jet service would be provided by Horizon Air flying the Embraer 175 aircraft featuring first class and premium class cabins.
