Paine Field Airport Flights Take Off!

After years spent forging new partnerships, addressing local concerns, and constructing a state-of-the-art facility, the passenger terminal at Snohomish County’s Paine Field Airport opened on March 4, 2019 to much fanfare. This is an exciting time for Snohomish County and the entire Puget Sound region! Through our innovative partnership with Propeller Airports, we have finally realized our dream and the vision of those who built Paine Field 83 years ago. Snohomish County has a new gateway to the world.

The two-gate passenger terminal at Paine Field (PAE) will be serviced by Alaska and United Airlines, with United starting service later this month. The airlines have announced 24 flights per day, connecting Snohomish County with nine domestic destinations, including major leisure and business travel destinations and international hubs.

Snohomish County’s Paine Field is already the economic engine of the county, and adding commercial air service will make us much more attractive for businesses looking to invest and for tourists wanting to visit the Pacific Northwest. It will also be extraordinarily convenient for our residents.

I was very proud to join other local elected officials and dignitaries on the first flight to Portland. As we roared down the runway and lifted off into perfectly clear skies, I felt gratitude for all of those who had worked so hard to realize this dream.
