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.
An airport master plan is a long-range planning document that outlines a strategy for development of airport land and facilities. The plan is intended to prepare the airport to support the needs of the future. The current Paine Field Master Plan update was adopted by the Snohomish County Council in December 2002 and was accepted by the Federal Aviation Administration in November 2003. The master plan is informed by Snohomish County residents, government agencies, chambers of commerce, the airport commission, civic groups, environmental organizations, business leaders, and others with an interest in the airport.
