October 2 Horizon Air at Paine Field

Horizon Air announced today that it wants to begin commercial passenger service out of Paine Field in Everett.

Snohomish County, with a population of nearly 700,000, has no commercial airport. Paine Field is an excellent choice for passenger air operations.

The terminal is conveniently located near the airport offices.

Lots of parking space available.

Paine Field has three runways! The longest is 9010 feet long.

New FAA tower and a well maintained ILS.

“Rather than suffer on the I-5 slog or endure tedious hours on I-90, Snohomish County residents would be able to travel between these Northwest regions much more quickly with Horizon Air from Paine Field." said Dan Russo, Horizon’s vice president of marketing and communications.

Yes, and think of all the greenhouse gas emissions that will be eliminated when Snohomish County residents can drive to a local airport instead of Sea-Tac.

Paine Field is clearly the Green Choice.
