Alaska Airlines will give Boise travelers a new way to get to the Seattle metro area: By flying to Everett.

The airline added the roundtrip, non-stop flights starting in June, as first reported by the Everett Herald. Passengers can fly from Boise to Everett’s Paine Field starting Friday, June 19th, according to Alaska’s site.

The daily flight from Boise to Everett leaves at 7am MT and arrives at 7:45am PT – a 1:45 flight. The return trip each day leaves Everett at 7:10pm PT and arrives in Boie at 9:40pm MT – a 1:30 flight.

Alaska will service the route with one of its Embraer E175 jets.

The Everett Herald said Alaska will cut one daily roundtrip between Everett and Portland to make way for the Boise service.

“A growing number of our guests enjoy the ease of flying to and from Paine Field and its new terminal. We believe this route will become popular, more easily connecting family and friends, workers and businesses,” Alaska’s David Besse said according to the Herald.

Paine Field in Everett opens up access by air to the northern part of the congestion-choked Seattle metro area. Alaska started service to the airport last year.

Thought it essentially adds capacity between Boise and Seattle, it gives BOI one additional destination. BoiseDev broke news late last year of a new nonstop flight from Boise to Atlanta, the nation’s busiest airport. That route gave Boise travelers a key east coast destination. That flight will launch on Delta Airlines in July. Last month, Alaska ended its nonstop service to Reno.

When the two new flights are in place, travelers can fly nonstop to 21 destinations, up from the current 19.
