By mid-February, commercial airline flights will be made at Paine Field in Everett, Washington.
Alaska Airlines has announced that its flights will start on February 11th when an 18-day round-trip flight between Everett and eight West Coast cities is scheduled. Tickets will now be available on sales routes and will have discounted prices for one-way for $ 39.
Although Paine Field has a ssembly line and some general aviation flights, it has been decades since the airport had last regular commercial passenger service.
However, two airlines – Alaska Airlines and United – announced plans to start flights after a new passenger terminal was built last year. Southwest was third, saying it will fly from Paine Field earlier this year, but the low-cost giant said on Thursday that it had changed its mind and would transfer its homes to Alaska.
Alaska, which changed this heart in the southwest, launched its plans for Paine Field from its 13th to 18th. Alaska's Everett targets will be Las Vegas; Los Angeles; Orange County, California; Phoenix; Portland, Oregon; San Diego; San Francisco; and San Jose, California.

The regular airline service movement to Everett is part of the region's rapidly growing Seattle-Tacoma International's effort to make it a secondary airport for Seattle, where it has organized a number of passenger registrations in recent years.
Flights to Everett will probably have the biggest attraction to those living in the north of Seattle. Sea-Tac airport is located approximately 15 miles to the south of Seattle city center and must travel through the frequently clogged north-south arteries of vehicles from the north of the city.
Paine Field, however, is about 25 miles north of Seattle. Traffic to the airport from the northern areas of Seattle has been less prone to congestion.
Alaska Airlines operates the busiest center in Sea-Tac, the central and busiest center in Seattle.
However, in Everett's statement, Alaska has launched Paine Field as a new option for its larger customer base in larger Seattle.
Alaska Airlines, "More than a million travelers in Seattle in the north, will enjoy a shorter trip to Paine Field than to go south from Sea-Tac Airport." Said.
