The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has granted permission to Paine Field in Everett, Washington, to launch commercial operations following the completion of a new $40m terminal.

The new terminal building, known as Paine Field Passenger Terminal, was constructed by Seattle-based company Propeller Airports.

The new passenger terminal features two gates and covers an area of approximately 30,000ft². It is expected to manage nearly 1.4 million passengers per annum.

Due to the large size of the terminal, the airport believes that travellers will be able to get to their gate from the curb in just ten minutes.

“Alaska Airlines will start its operations from early March, while United Airlines plans to start running services later on in the month.”

Facilities including armchairs and charging outlets are expected to be available to passengers, while high-speed internet will also be in use throughout the terminal.
