After a delay of several weeks, Alaska Airlines operated its first flights to and from Paine Field in Snohomish County Airport in Everett, Washington, on Monday.  Flights were originally to start on February 11, 2019.

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

The airline is offering 18 non-stop flights to eight destinations from Paine Field. 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.

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.
