Alaska Airlines announced today that it will be launching daily nonstop flight service between Spokane International Airport and Paine Field-Snohomish County Airport in Everett starting on Nov. 4, just in time for winter holiday travel. 

"When it comes to flights at Paine Field, our guests have been eager for one city to be added above all others right now – they said make it Spokane," said David Besse, manager of network planning for Alaska Airlines. "We believe this route will be very popular, easily connecting family and friends, workers and businesses, between two dynamic regions of the state."

Spokane becomes the 10th destination served by Alaska at the new terminal in Everett.

"The announcement of scheduled service to Paine Field by Alaska Airlines fulfills one of the most important air service priorities for our region," said Nancy Vorhees, chair of the Spokane Airport Board. 

All Alaska flights at Paine Field are operated by Horizon Air with jet service using the Embraer 175 aircraft, which features a three-class cabin. From Paine Field, guests can currently fly to eight destinations: Las Vegas; Los Angeles; Orange County, California; Phoenix; Portland, Oregon; San Diego; San Francisco; and San Jose, California. Alaska recently announced Palm Springs will become its ninth destination from Everett, with tickets already on sale.

"This new service to Paine Field will directly benefit the aerospace industry sector as it continues to expand in our region and create time-saving efficiencies for our business community overall,” said Larry Krauter, CEO of Spokane International Airport. “We're thankful to Alaska for its commitment to the Spokane and Coeur d'Alene region."

Alaska started commercial service at Paine Field on Mar. 4, 2019. In that short time, flying in and out of Everett has become a popular, convenient option for many travelers, especially those who live north of Seattle who don't want to drive to Sea-Tac Airport. As of late July, nearly 300,000 guests have flown Alaska's flights at Paine Field.

"This is exciting news," said Arif Ghouse, Paine Field’s airport director. "One of the questions I've been asked the most over the past few months is when service might start to Spokane. There will be considerable interest in the new flight."
