Paine Field to be served by two airlines in 2019

December 16, 2018 by  

Alaska Airlines and United Airlines will both begin services from Paine Field in Everett in Spring 2019, marking the first commercial services from the airport for several years.

Alaska Airlines will be the first airline to offer commercial services from Paine Field, starting on February 11. The airline will have 18 daily round trip flights that go to eight airports located on the West Coast.

United Airlines will follow up with six daily round trips flights from Paine Field as of March 31. Four of these flights will arrive in San Francisco and two go to Denver airports. All the flights will be conducted by United Express affiliates. The airline will use the Embraer 175 jets that seats 75 people.

Ankit Gupta, United’s vice president of network planning says they are excited to offer new services to Seattle, Everett, and Washington area travelers. This will give them easy access to Denver and San Francisco.

Paine Field has a busy flight schedule due to its location near Boeing’s large factory and assembly line. Everett stationery printers often cater to businesses like this.

Boeing has a heavy flight schedule at Paine Field and does some private aviation flying. At the factory, it performs final assembly on several wide body planes, such as the 747, 767, 777, and 787.

Alaska Airlines decided to offer flights from Paine Field to expand its reach into metro Seattle and target more customers by doing so.
