What the airlines are planning for Paine Field in Everett

If all goes as planned, three carriers will begin serving Snohomish County with 24 daily flights.

UPDATE, 11/15/2018: On Nov. 15, 2018, Southwest Airlines announced it had transferred its five Paine Field slots to Alaska Airlines under a business agreement, effectively withdrawing from serving Everett. Alaska’s frequency was then expected to increase from 13 flights per day to 18.

A draft environmental assessment released by the Federal Aviation Administration on Sept. 29 details plans by three airlines to serve Paine Field in Everett starting in 2019. There was no actual passenger-service schedule cited in the report, but the airlines did specify destinations and frequency.

Altogether, the airlines could accommodate 2,159 departing passengers on 24 flights per day from Everett, or 788,035 passengers per year. That would change if different aircraft were deployed.

For two destination airports — San Francisco and Las Vegas — Everett travelers would have a choice of airline under current plans.

For your future travel planning, Paine Field’s designated three-letter code is PAE.

The models are coming, but they may roll out ahead of consumer tastes. And that could spell problems for the U.S. auto industry, which is sinking billions into the new technology with dozens of new vehicles on the way.  (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)
