Alaska Airlines plans commercial air service at Everett's Paine Field

Propeller Airports, a developer, owner and operator of passenger terminals, has broken ground on a new passenger terminal at Snohomish County Airport, the company said.

Representatives from Alaska Airlines were joined by Lieutenant Governor Cyrus Habib, Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers, Mayor of Everett Ray Stephanson and other stakeholders to commemorate this significant milestone for North Sound travelers and the local economy.

This comes on the heels of Alaska Airline´s recent announcement that the carrier will begin commercial air service from Paine Field by the fall of 2018.

In May 2017, Alaska Airlines announced that they will begin commercial service from Paine Field in the Fall of 2018. More than a million North Sound travelers will enjoy shorter commutes to the airport and up to nine daily departures. Many travelers who live north of Seattle spend more time getting to an airport than actually flying to destinations as close as Portland, Oregon.

Propeller Airports is a developer of air terminals and aviation support facilities that specializes in public private partnerships.
