Paine Field y las opciones a elegir

Estamos desarrollando un plan maestro que va a guiar el futuro desarrollo de Paine Field durante los próximos 20 años.

¿Qué es el plan maestro de Paine Field?

El plan maestro de aeropuerto es un documento de planificación a largo plazo, que recomienda estrategias de desarrollo de los terrenos e instalaciones del aeropuerto.

Paine Field

By the numbers

As of 2018, Paine Field (PAE) supports 158,227 jobs and has a total economic impact/business revenue of $59.9 billion annually. It has the highest economic impact of any airport in the state of Washington.

The airport has two parallel runways for arrivals and departures: Runway 16L/34R serves general aviation aircraft, while the 9,010-foot-long Runway 16R/34L accommodates large jet aircraft, up to and including the largest aircraft in the world.

In its first 12 months of service, the privately-owned and operated commercial passenger terminal at PAE welcomed approximately 1 million passengers. These passengers were utilizing the 24 arrivals and 24 departures each day before the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted air travel.

Paine Field serves an average of 315 aircraft operations per day (general aviation, Boeing, and commercial air service), and it is home to approximately 509 general aviation based aircraft.

During times of emergency, say an earthquake or other natural disaster, Paine Field provides much-needed transportation capacity and flexibility for government planners.

A strategic vision for Paine Field

An Airport Master Plan is a long-range planning document that recommends a strategy for development of airport land and facilities. The plan’s goal is to prepare the county’s airport to support the needs of the future. The plan will also ensure the airport balances our economic, environmental, and social values.

The Master Plan is informed by Snohomish County residents, government agencies, chambers of commerce, civic groups, environmental organizations, business leaders, and others with an interest in the airport. The Master Plan will ultimately be approved by County Executive and the Snohomish County Council, and then submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for acceptance. The current Paine Field Master Plan was adopted by the Snohomish County Council on December 4, 2002 and accepted by the FAA on November 13, 2003.

Developing our future together

Paine Field Airport, which is owned and operated by Snohomish County on behalf of its residents, values our community, and we need your input as we develop a plan for the coming decades. Public outreach will occur at key milestones during the project to enable the public to review and comment. In addition, this website will provide informational updates as the plan is developed and will include ways for the public to provide ongoing input.


Developing the Master Plan is a two-phase process that we expect to take two and a half years, if all goes according to plan, concluding in 2022.

Phase One

Phase One, which began in 2020, includes information gathering and study. We’ll use the information we gather to develop options for how the airport can develop over the next 20 years. These ideas will be developed into preliminary alternatives and then we’ll determine requirements for those alternatives for consideration.

During Phase One, we’ll engage with the community through open houses as well as website updates and other information sharing.

Phase Two

During Phase Two, we’ll evaluate the preliminary alternatives and come up with a single preferred alternative. Once a preferred alternative has been identified, we’ll study environmental impacts, implementation scenarios, and projected finances for the alternative.

During this phase, we’ll also engage with the community through public meetings, post updates to this website, and host online open houses.

Stay informed

You can follow along with our progress by signing up for email updates.

Master Plan committees

There are three primary committees that will help develop the Master Plan: the Steering Committee, the Stakeholder Advisory Committee, and the Technical Committee.

Steering Committee

The role of the Steering Committee is to guide Snohomish County’s goals and priorities for the airport and provide ongoing policy and strategic guidance throughout the Master Plan process. The Steering Committee includes members from Paine Field, the Port of Everett, and business leaders.

Stakeholder Advisory Committee

The Stakeholder Advisory Committee is an advisory committee comprised of key aviation stakeholders such as major tenants, local businesses, representatives from the community, and technical experts. Its purpose is to provide a venue for members to communicate issues of key interest and provide informed feedback regarding the purpose and scope of the Master Plan. The Stakeholder Advisory Committee represents a broad range of airport/aviation/community interests, and its members will have specific technical knowledge regarding the airport and/or community they serve.

Technical Committee

The Technical Committee is comprised of senior airport staff and the consultant team. The committee’s primary role is to provide technical input and review of the various technical documents.

Get involved and stay informed!

This website will share information and updates as the plan is developed, including invitations for public participation in online open houses. Please join our mailing list to receive updates.
