Those looking for a flight to Western Washington and the Seattle area may soon have a new flight option. That's because the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration ) has given it's approval to add commercial flight service in and out of Paine Field (Airport code: PAE) in Everett.
Two airlines intend to add Everett to their flight schedules , Horizon Air and Allegiant Air. The flights proposed at this time would take travelers to Spokane, Portland and Las Vegas. More flights may also be added in the near future.
The move to add commercial air service was first proposed back in 2008 but has been a contested issue by many who live around the airport. The nearby residents are worried about increases in pollution added traffic and noise. However an environmental review that was conducted in September claims that there will be no significant increases in those categories.
Paine Field is ran by Snohomish County and is also well known as a tourist destination as it is home to one of Boeing's largest manufacturing plants and the Future of Flight Aviation Center & Boeing Tour.
