Alaska Airlines is connecting the newest commercial airport in the Seattle area with another one of their main hubs: New daily, nonstop service between Everett and Anchorage begins Nov. 30, 2022.
Tickets for flights between Paine Field-Snohomish County Airport and the state of Alaska’s largest city are available for purchase now on alaskaair.com.
“We listened to our guests who live and work from north of Seattle to the Canadian border,” said Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances for Alaska Airlines.
“They told us one of their top requests is a nonstop flight between Everett and Anchorage.
“There’s a significant need and demand to connect workers and businesses in the two regions – from the fishing industry to aviation – in addition to the desire for leisure travel. We’re ready to welcome our guests on this new route this fall.”
“For Economic Alliance Snohomish County, the City of Everett and Paine Field, we are thankful for the rich history of business and community engagement provided by Alaska Airlines,” said Garry Clark, president and CEO at Economic Alliance Snohomish County.
“This announcement is another example of Alaska Airlines’ willingness to be forward thinking, valuing its customers to create desired opportunities for travel and connection.
“This is extra sweet due to Alaska Airlines’ history: Anchorage served as the first flight location for Alaska Airlines and its founder Linious McGee back in 1932. Snohomish County is grateful for Alaska and its continued efforts at Paine Field.”
With the new nonstop from Everett, operated by Alaska Airlines sister airline Horizon Air, Anchorage becomes the farthest destination and longest flight they will serve from that airport, and it’s also their first route to fly north from it.
On the operations side, Horizon began operating a new 74,000 square foot hangar and maintenance facility on the Paine Field property this year that can accommodate up to four E175 aircraft at a time.
