Alaska Airlines is preparing to ramp up its full schedule of flights at Paine Field in Everett this summer.

Travelers can currently fly on one of 16 peak daily nonstop departures between Paine Field and a variety of destinations throughout the west coast.

Starting June 17, Alaska Airlines will increase its flights to 18 peak daily departures – its full allotment of departures at the airport – which will include four daily nonstops to San Francisco. Service between Paine Field and San Francisco resumes on May 19.

"The challenges of the last two years across the travel industry were not unique to Paine Field, but we've always had a great partner in our hometown carrier, and we knew they were committed to us and the travelers of this region," said Brett Smith, CEO of Propeller Airports. "We look forward to Alaska bringing their full schedule back and offering great options out of Paine Field."

Current designations include Boise, Las Vegas, Orange County, Palm Springs, Phoenix, San Diego, Spokane, and Tucson. For the latest flight schedules and to purchase tickets, visit

"Paine Field is a popular option for our guests flying in and out the Puget Sound region with its beautiful facility, compact size, and ease to navigate – the terminal feels luxurious," said Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances at Alaska Airlines. "We have many Mileage Plan members and elite flyers who live north of Seattle. We want to offer destinations that appeal to them while also being a convenient alternative to possible congestion to the south."

The airline's sister carrier Horizon Air provides most of the service at Paine Field with the Embraer 175 jet. The company recently added 737 service on Alaska for the afternoon flights to Las Vegas and Phoenix. The E175 features first class and premium class, and only window and aisle seating – there are no middle seats. Guests can enjoy hundreds of free movies and TV shows available for viewing on personal devices, free texting on most flights, and Wi-Fi connectivity for purchase.

As the Alaska Airline website is semi user unfriendly, it would have been interesting for the writer to have included the projected first and last flights of the day.
