The airline’s recovery continues this fall with 13 daily departures at the Seattle-area airport located in Everett, WA. This includes a new nonstop flight to Tucson that offers passengers another warm destination this winter.
Resuming Flights Out of Everett, WA
Alaska Airlines had begun service out of Paine Field to take some load off of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA). This service gives passengers that live north of Seattle an easier path to their flights by not having to drive through Seattle on I-5 which most times looks like a parking lot.
With increasing confidence that air travel is on a steady climb to return to pre-pandemic levels in the coming year, Alaska Airlines is planning to resume a full schedule of 18 daily nonstop departures at Paine Field-Snohomish County Airport by spring 2022, possibly earlier. The airport in Everett, north of Seattle, remains very popular with its passengers.
As part of the path to recovery, Alaska will have 13 daily departures at Paine Field later this fall – up from five now – as they bring back more destinations, increase flight frequencies and even add an exciting new route to Tucson, Arizona.
“It has definitely been a difficult stretch, but our commitment to Paine Field never wavered,” said Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances at Alaska Airlines. “Our guests love the convenience of the airport. Next year, as we continue to offer additional flights, we’ll be in a position to resume our full allotment of 18 departures every day to the places our guests want to fly to the most.”
Adding New Service From Paine Field
On June 17, Alaska will fly to five destinations from Everett: Las Vegas, Orange County, Phoenix, San Diego and San Francisco. Here’s more of what’s ahead at Paine Field:
- On Sept. 8, an increase to 11 daily departures to seven destinations as we add two flights a day to both Boise and Spokane, along with second daily flights to both Las Vegas and Phoenix.
- On Oct. 7, Alaska will bring back a seasonal flight to Palm Springs.
- On Nov. 19, they’ll launch a new seasonal service to Tucson, another popular getaway for wintertime warmth in the desert.
That means, that just in time for the holiday travel season, Alaska will have 13 daily departures to nine destinations from the north Puget Sound airport that’s easy to get in and out of. Tickets are available for purchase now for all Paine Field flights on alaskaair.com, including the new service between Everett and Tucson.
Horizon Air provides the all-jet service for our flights that serve Paine Field with the Embraer 175 aircraft, which features First Class and Premium Class, and only window and aisle seating – there are no middle seats. Passengers can enjoy hundreds of free movies and TV shows available for viewing on personal devices; free texting on most flights; and Wi-Fi connectivity for purchase.
This is certainly great news for residents of Washington that live north of Seattle. They can again avoid the traffic congestion in Seattle to catch their flights. For Alaska, adding new service at Paine Field is a sure sign that passenger traffic for Alaska Airlines is returning back to normal.
