“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.”

In the three months following the start of operations at Paine Field, more than 160,000 passengers have flown with Alaska through the new airport. In response to customer comments, Alaska is adjusting selected frequencies to make options more convenient for passengers.

Starting August 26, a second round-trip between Everett and Phoenix will begin, along with the number of flights available from Everett to both Los Angeles and Portland.

“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 travelers, and allow for better connection windows.”

The adjustment enables Alaska to add the new roundtrips to Palm Springs and Phoenix while staying within their limit of 18 daily departures at Paine Field.

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, passengers can currently fly to eight destinations: Las Vegas; Los Angeles; Orange County, California; Phoenix; Portland, Oregon; San Diego; San Francisco; and San Jose, California.
