FAA Schedules Third Hearing On Environmental Assessment
The FAA has scheduled a third public hearing on a draft
environmental assessment that could lead to commercial airline
service at Paine Field, Boeing's home airport.
Two airlines, Horizon Air and Allegiant, would like to begin
regional service from Paine Field. A formal request by the two
airlines initiated the environmental review. While Snohomish
County Executive Aaron Reardon and some other county officials say
they are opposed to the proposal, they are required by federal law
to make accommodations for those services at Paine. The county may
not prohibit passenger service at the airport, and it is required
to negotiate "in good faith" with the airlines.
The Edmonds, Washington "Beacon" reports that for commercial
service to begin, the FAA would have to amend the county's
operating certificate for the airport, as well as operating
specifications for the airlines. Horizon Air would like to offer
four daily flights to Portland, and Allegiant hopes to offer two
daily flights to Las Vegas.
The environmental assessment, which was funded by an FAA grant,
was prepared at a cost that is expected to reach $450,000 by the
time the reviews are completed. The hearing is set for Jan. 21,
2010, at the Lynnwood Convention Center, and the public comment
period will be extended to February 5, 2010.
