According to various sources, United Airlines is leaving Paine Field in October. Currently, the airline had been only offering flights to Denver. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the airline also flew to San Francisco.
An airline spokesperson said there wasn’t enough demand at Paine Field but they plan to continuing flying out of Sea-Tac.
The news of their departure comes right after Alaska Airlines stated they plan to increase flights out of Paine Field in the fall.
Alaska Airlines currently flies to Las Vegas, Orange County, Phoenix, San Diego, and San Francisco. They plan to offer service to Boise, Spokane, and Tucson in the fall. Service to Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Portland, and San Jose was suspended due to the pandemic but they plan on restoring those flights in the near future.
