Alaska Airlines to launch new daily direct service between Everett, Washington and Anchorage Alaska starting November 30, 2022. The route will be operated by Alaska’s sister airline Horizon Air and will be serviced with an Embraer E175.
On Friday (August 26, 2022), Alaska Airlines announced the launch of new daily service between Paine Field – Snohomish County Airport in Everett, Washington and Anchorage, Alaska starting November 30, 2022. Paine Field is around 20 miles north of Seattle and 70 miles south of Bellingham, and offers a convenient, upscale, stress-free alternative airport experience with a laid back lounge environment. The route will be operated by Alaska’s sister carrier Horizon Air and will be serviced with an Embraer E175 aircraft.
In Friday’s announcment, Alaska Airlines’ Vice President of Network and Alliances, Brett Catlin, said,
“We listened to our guests who live and work from north of Seattle to the Canadian border. 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.”
Also commenting on Alaska’s service expansion in Everett, Economic Alliance Snohomish County’s President and CEO, Garry Clark, added,
“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. 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 added service, Alaska will now serve nine destinations from Everett this fall and winter including Anchorage, Boise, Las Vegas, Orange County, Palm Springs, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco and Spokane. Most service from Paine Field is provided by Horizon Air with Embraer E175s featuring First and Premium Class and no middle seats. Guests will also enjoy hundreds of free movies and TV shows for viewing on their personal devices, free texting on most flights and Wi-Fi available for purchase. Horizon also started 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 jets at one time.
