Mukilteo is a divided community when it comes to Paine Field, the airport next door.

When Paine Field was built in 1936, nearly a decade before Seattle-Tacoma International Airport was completed, the 604-acre, fog-free unpopulated site 23 miles north of Seattle was envisioned as being one of 10 commercial “super airports” around the country.

Alaska Airlines says it will begin service from Paine Field in Everett in the fall of 2018.
