Commercial flights from Paine Field coming soon

FAA's environmental assessment out for public comment

The Federal Aviation Administration is seeking public comments on an environmental assessment of new commercial airline service at Paine Field.

Together, Alaska Airlines, United Airlines and Southwest are planning to offer up to 24 daily domestic roundtrip flights from Paine Field.  

The airlines would use the airport’s newly constructed commercial passenger terminal building. Additional parking spaces would be added on existing airfield pavement areas near the terminal. 

The FAA is asking for public comment on the Draft Supplemental Environmental Assessment through November 2.

A public workshop and hearing will be held on October 29, at the Lynnwood Convention Center, at 3711 196th St SW, Lynnwood, WA 98036, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The environmental documents are available for review on Paine Field’s website.

Demand for commercial passenger service is growing in the region.  

PSRC is conducting a Regional Aviation Baseline Study that aims to provide a clear picture of the aviation activities and needs in the central Puget Sound region and set the stage for future planning.
