Alaska Airlines announced plans to offer service from Paine Field to Palm Springs in the fall.

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.

The Seattle-based airline also said it was reducing the frequency and changing the timing of flights from Paine Field to both Portland, Oregon, and Los Angeles from four to three, to allow for the new service to Palm Springs.

Paine Field is the site of Boeing’s Everett assembly plant that was part of the 747 program. Alaska is one of two airlines offering scheduled service from the historic airport (the other is United Airlines), which began commercial service in 1939.
