EVERETT, Wash. — Officials say work on a new passenger terminal at Everett’s Paine Field is on track and they expect the first regularly scheduled flight will take off as early as next fall.

The Daily Herald reported Monday that Propeller Airports secured building permits from Snohomish County earlier this month, giving them full authority to build the two-gate passenger terminal at the Everett airport.

CEO Brett Smith says they expect the construction will be finished by mid-July and planes should be able to take off from the terminal by September.

Alaska Airlines and United Airlines announced plans to offer daily flights out of the new terminal earlier this year.
