A plan to bring passenger flights to Paine Field in Everett has cleared a regulatory hurdle, paving the way for services to start early next year, our online news partner The Seattle Times reports.

The Federal Aviation Administration on Saturday released an updated environmental assessment, finding that commercial flights proposed by three airlines would not have a significant impact on traffic or noise in the area. The report follows up on the regulator’s initial approval of commercial flights from Paine Field in 2012.

A public hearing on the FAA’s environmental assessment is scheduled for Oct. 29 at the Lynnwood Convention Center. The public comment period runs through Nov. 2.

  1. Thanks for reporting on this, Teresa. I want to again invite community members to the next Paine Field / Snohomish County Airport Commission meeting on Thursday, October 25th from 6-8pm at the Future of Flight. County staff should be posting the last meeting’s minutes and upcoming meeting’s agenda on October 22nd.

    I’d also encourage attendance at the public hearing (or at least email your comments ahead of time) at the FAA’s environmental assessment is scheduled for Oct. 29 at the Lynnwood Convention Center. The public comment period runs through Nov. 2.

    1. I appreciate the opportunity to comment on the future of commercial air travel from Paine Field, but am wondering if there is anything anyone could say at this point that would modify or stop this horror from becoming a reality?
