Alaska Airlines adds a top requested destination from Paine Field

Alaska Airlines will be adding a new destination from recently opened based at Paine Field,  by popular demand.  The carrier advises that soon after opening operations at the Snohomish County Airport, in the greater Seattle area, it started getting requests from customers to add Palm Springs to the roster of services offered. )

So the West Coast airline is making it happen. Starting November 5th, it will start a daily service between Everett and Palm Springs - just in time for the Coachella Valley’s Popular winter travel season. 

“Hands down, Palm Springs was number one on our guests’ wish list for the next destination from Paine Field,” said Noelle Fredrickson, general manager of network planning and strategy for Alaska Airlines. “After three months of flying at Everett, we thought this was a good time to make adjustments to improve the flying experiences for our guests. And hopefully, make some people really happy.”

The start of service at Paine Field overall is a big hit – from the ease of getting to the airport, to the luxurious comfort of the new terminal, to the quick boarding process. As of late May, more than 160,000 passengers have flown with us at Paine Field.

Other changes are on the horizon, too. To make travel more convenient and efficient Alaska Airlines will be adjusting the number of flights between Everett and both Portland and Los Angeles. “We’re optimizing our flight schedule to improve our operations,” said Fredrickson. “By flying three roundtrips a day instead of four to Portland and L.A., we can better provide the key flight times preferred by our business travellers, and allow for better connection windows.”

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.
