SEATTLE, June 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 our 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 our guests.
As part of the path to recovery, we'll have 13 daily departures at Paine Field later this fall – up from five now – as we 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."
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, we'll jump 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, we bring back our seasonal flight to Palm Springs.
- On Nov. 19, we'll launch our new seasonal service to Tucson, another popular getaway for wintertime warmth in the desert.
That means, 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. Guests 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.
As flyers begin traveling again, Alaska remains committed to Next-Level Care for its guests and employees – from clean planes to clean air in the cabin (with hospital-grade air filtration systems). Alaska also continues to enforce the federally mandated mask policy even for those who are fully vaccinated.
