Paine Field looks to have a bright post-pandemic future.

Today United Airlines confirmed it was going to end service between Everett’s Paine Field and Denver, Colorado. Here’s what the airline’s media department told us today via email.

United has continued to evaluate and adapt its network and based on demand trends, the airline will suspend service from Denver (DEN) to Everett, Washington (PAE), effective Oct. 5, 2021. United will continue to serve the region with non-stop service to Seattle (SEA) from Denver, New York/Newark, Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C. and San Francisco.

United currently operates one daily United Express flight between DEN and PAE and last year discontinued service between Everett, Washington and San Francisco, California.

MyEverettNews.com checked in with Propeller Airports CEO Brett Smith who told us the move was not a big surprise.

Said Smith, “Yep, its true and not surprising. The slots will be taken by someone else (not at liberty to discuss at the moment). I am not worried in the least.”

Alaska Airlines has continued to add back service and adjust routes from Paine Field including service to Spokane, Boise and Tucson as they recover from the Pandemic.

In a social media post Monday night Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers advised patience when it comes to Paine Field getting back to pre-pandemic levels.

“Alaska has challenges getting planes and crew for their entire system but have told us they are dedicated to PAE. United consolidating their service. Makes sense to not have to staff and fly out of PAE when they have such a presence at Sea Tac. Patience people. We are just in our recovery period and I think the next year is going to continue to be a challenge for a lot of businesses including airlines.”
