Alaska Airlines announced that it would begin 18 daily non-stops from Paine Field in-Snohomish County Airport in Everett, Washington, starting on February 11, 2019.

The list of destinations includes Los Angeles, San Jose, San Francisco, San Diego, and Orange County, California; Phoenix, Arizona; Portland, Oregon; and Las Vegas, Nevada.

“The wait is over,” the airline said in a statement.

Alaska’s regional subsidiary Horizon Air will operate the flights using Embraer 175 aircraft with a three-class cabin. The planes will have 12 first-class recliner seats with 42” seat pitch in a 1-2 configuration, 12 premium-economy lite seats in a 2-2 configuration with 18.5” width and 36” seat pitch, and 52 seats in coach.

Paine Field is the site of Boeing’s Everett assembly plant that was part of the 747 program. Alaska, along with United Airlines, plans to offer scheduled service from the historic airport, which began commercial service in 1939.
