Alaska Airlines Announces New Service between Paine Field and Spokane

Alaska Airlines announced it will launch daily nonstop service between Paine Field in Everett and Spokane International Airport on November 4, 2019. Flights are now for sale, just before the holiday travel season. Spokane becomes the 10th destination served by Alaska from the new terminal in Everett.

“When it comes to flights at Paine Field, our guests have been eager for one city to be added above all others right now – they said make it Spokane,” said David Besse, our manager of network planning. “We believe this route will be very popular, easily connecting family and friends, workers and businesses, between two dynamic regions of the state.”

“The announcement of scheduled service to Paine Field by Alaska Airlines fulfills one of the most important air service priorities for our region,” said Nancy Vorhees, Chair of the Spokane Airport Board. 

Larry Krauter, CEO of Spokane International Airport added, “This new service to Paine Field will directly benefit the aerospace industry sector as it continues to expand in our region and create time-saving efficiencies for our business community overall. We’re thankful to Alaska for its commitment to the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene region!”

Alaska launched commercial service from Paine Field at the beginning of March, and since then, flying in and out of Everett has proven to be quite popular with travelers living north of downtown Seattle. In fact, as of late July, nearly 300,000 passengers have flown on Alaska’s flights at Paine Field.

“This is exciting news,” said Arif Ghouse, Paine Field Airport Director. “One of the questions I’ve been asked the most over the past few months is when service might start to Spokane. There will be considerable interest in the new flight.”

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. Alaska recently announced Palm Springs will become its ninth destination from Everett.
