“We’re proud to become the anchor tenant of the new terminal at Paine Field. With so many new possibilities for business and leisure travel, we believe this will bring increased opportunities to our communities,” he continued.

Alaska Airlines’ Paine Field flights feature a three-class configuration on its Boeing 737s: first class, premium class, and main cabin. Also, passengers will enjoy Wi-Fi connectivity, over 200 free movies and TV shows that can be streamed on individual devices and free texting while onboard.

The new, state-of-art terminal at Paine Field is under construction by Propeller Airports and Snohomish County and it’s set to inaugurate in fall 2018. This airport is also home to Boeing, where the assembly lines for the 747/767/777/787 programs are based, and the manufacturer’s newest delivery center is located.

Alaska/Virgin America passengers can now travel to over 900 destinations worldwide, especially with available connections through San Francisco and Los Angeles, both to be served from Paine Field.
