Kenmore Air to launch daily service from Everett's Paine Field to the San Juan Islands

Flights offer the quickest and most convenient connection to the San Juans

(SEATTLE, WA, June 13, 2022) – Reservations opened today for Kenmore Air’s soon-to-debut daily service from Paine Field in Everett, WA to San Juan Island and Orcas Island, which will offer four daily, roundtrip flights to each island. The flights begin on July 14, 2022.

The new routes are designed for San Juan Islands visitors and residents looking for a quick, convenient and reliable connection between the islands and Snohomish County. The flights also tap into the growing number of connecting flights offered out of Paine Field.

“Transportation modes to the San Juans have become more restricted and less reliable in recent months, leaving many people looking for a way to spend more of their free time enjoying the islands and less time getting there,” said Kenmore Air COO David Gudgel “This service is another opportunity for Kenmore to safely and conveniently connect the people and businesses in our region.”

Each roundtrip flight will depart Paine Field for Friday Harbor Airport on San Juan Island. The flight continues to Orcas Island Airport in Eastsound before returning to Paine Field.

Passengers will enjoy a modern flight experience in Kenmore Air’s nine-passenger Cessna Caravan aircraft, making the trip in an efficient 25 minutes rather than hours via passenger ferry. Trip time and stress are further reduced with available passenger parking immediately in front of Kenmore Air’s Paine Field facility. Kenmore Air’s new service carries a flat rate of $189 one-way. However, passengers who book flights between today and July 14, 2022 will receive a promotional rate of $175 one-way.

These new flights add to Kenmore’s extensive air service connecting the San Juan Islands and the Seattle area with daily flights departing Boeing Field and Lake Union.
