Alaska Airlines to fly between Everett and Anchorage beginning this fall

EVERETT, Wash. — A new direct flight is coming to Everett’s Paine Field.

Alaska Airlines is adding a daily, nonstop flight between Everett and Anchorage, Alaska, which will be operated by its sister airline, Horizon Air.

Officials with the airline say the decision stems from public demand.

“We listened to our guests who live and work from north of Seattle to the Canadian border. They told us one of their top requests is a nonstop flight between Everett and Anchorage,” said Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances for Alaska Airlines. “There’s a significant need and demand to connect workers and businesses in the two regions – from the fishing industry to aviation – in addition to the desire for leisure travel.”

The flight makes its first journey on Nov. 30 and tickets are already on sale.
