We’re getting super excited! Our first flights from Paine Field in Everett, Washington take off March 4. We’ll soon have 18 daily nonstop departures to 8 terrific West Coast destinations. For so many of our guests – especially those who live in North Puget Sound – this new airport will be a game-changer.

Today, we’re sharing a sneak peek of what’s in store:

Before flying out of Paine Field for the first time, you may be wondering the best route to get there, where to park, and what food and drink options you’ll have. Propeller Airports – which operates the new terminal – has launched a website to help travelers plan their trips. We recommend checking it out!

  6. As an employee of McGee Air, I have had the pleasure of previewing the new terminal. With over 40 years of experience in the Airline Industry, it is probably one of the most beautiful boarding areas I have ever seen in a commercial airport. I liken it more to a Airline club lounge, than a passenger gate area. Everyone should be very excited about this exceptional addition to Snohomish county.

  7. This is my first Alaska Airlines flight. Disappointed that I couldn’t fly into Paine Field as originally booked. Now I have had to pay extra for the bus from SeaTac to Marysville casino. Also disappointed that I had to download an app before my flight took off in order to watch a movie. I wish I had known that ahead of time.

  9. I’m so happy that you’ve come to Paine Field…Congrats!

  10. Flights to Palm Springs????

  11. Looking at the long term parking situation. First, it’s considerably more than I pay at SeaTac and I know you have no control over that. Secondly it says it’s a 5 minute walk to the terminal. Is this a covered walk? I would not enjoy a 5 minute walk in the rain for sure.

    1. Hi Kitara — The walk from the parking lot to the terminal is not covered. You could try the valet service. More info here:

  17. When is there a non-stop to San Jose?????

    1. Hi Rick, you can see the flight schedule here:

  18. Question. Is the service 100 percent approved and will start for sure? When I’ve looked to buy tix it says on those flights pending government approval. I booked to Sea Tac because of that. That needs to be clarified on the website.

    1. Hi Michael. The Federal Aviation Administration has issued its Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), paving the way for commercial air service at Paine Field. Service remains subject to receipt of certain other governmental approvals, which Alaska anticipates will be received in time for us to launch our first flights on March 4, as scheduled.

  19. When will non-stop flights to Boise be added to your schedules?

    1. Hi John, no plans to add Boise in the near-term out of Paine Field, but we’ve taken note of your request.
