For release to pre-merger AS councils only
Alaska Air Group has announced the intent to operate Alaska Airlines mainline flights out of Paine Field (PAE) in Everett, WA sometime in late 2018. Management has informally expressed interest to AFA in discussing a co-terminal agreement out of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA). Driving distance between SEA and PAE is approximately 40 miles. Paine Field may not be made into a SEA co-terminal pursuant to §28.F.7 [Domiciles: Co-terminals] without mutual agreement between the parties.
It is far too early to speculate on how operations out of Paine Field might affect Inflight operations. Be assured that AFA will keep you updated once formal discussions regarding PAE begin with management.
