Propeller Airports has announced today the selection of McGee Air Services, Inc. to provide aircraft ground handling and passenger mobility services for airlines that will serve Paine Field, located in Everett, Washington, the company said.
The partnership is one of several that Propeller plans on announcing as construction of the new passenger terminal in Everett nears completion. The terminal is intended to provide customers a higher level of service and comfort than larger airports and to become the go-to travel option for the northern Seattle metro area.
McGee Air Services, an independent subsidiary of Alaska Airlines, will handle Paine Field´s 24 daily departures and arrivals with aircraft marshaling and towing, baggage handling, loading and unloading, cabin cleaning, and passenger support and mobility services.

Propeller Airports is focused on opportunities to invest, develop and manage both general aviation and commercial service airports in key US markets.
