Snohomish County is updating the Paine Field Airport Master Plan. The team has created an online open house and will host two webinars in November 2021. These will be opportunities for community members to learn more about the work completed to date on the plan and where the plan is headed. They will also give the residents the opportunity to communicate with the project team directly.

“Paine Field is incredibly important to the quality of life of Snohomish County residents,” said Arif Ghouse, Snohomish County Airport Director. “The Airport Master Plan will guide investments as the County works to make sure Paine Field can keep up with demand and continue serving passenger, general aviation, and other aerospace needs.”

Paine Field accounts for $60 billion in annual economic activity and supports over 158,000 direct and indirect jobs. With air travel on the rise as travel destinations reopen, Paine Field is projected to see an increase in demand from all users – general aviation, commercial, corporate, air cargo, and businesses to support this activity.

“We want to hear from the community as we go through this process. Community members can get involved by visiting the online open house and leaving their comments through Wednesday, November 24,” said Terry Ryan, Snohomish County Aerospace Economic Development Director.

Community members can visit the online open house at Through the online open house, community members can learn more about the master plan process, leave comments, sign up for project emails, or follow Paine Field Airport on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates.
