The Chicago-based airline plans to operate two flights per day from Denver and four from San Francisco.

United celebrated by having aviation industry pioneer Clay Lacy present for the ribbon-cutting ceremony for Sunday’s first departure to San Francisco. Lacy began flying airplanes at the age of 12 and joined United in 1952, where he piloted nine aircraft types including the DC-3, Boeing 727, and Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet. He also holds 29 world speed records and has flown over 300 aircraft types and logged more than 50,000 flight hours.

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

Alaska Airlines began operating flights to and from Paine Field one month earlier.
