EVERETT, Wash. - Thursday morning Southwest Airlines announced plans for commercial flights in and out of Paine Field in Everett.
Southwest plans to fly up to five flights a day from the new commercial terminal that is currently under construction.
That announcement was made during the company's fourth-quarter earnings presentation on Thursday.
