A lot of markets lost their service when they were retired.
Actually, I do. I flew on EMB-120 turboprop over 2 decades ago. I remember where I flew on USAir Express. I flew JAX-FLL-JAX, but i didn't like it at all.

Be interesting to see what kind of "infrastructure" will be added to PAE. There's already a Hilton Garden Inn on Paine Field Boulevard across from the Future of Flight Aviation Center and within a few minutes' drive of PAE (but not walking distance, I believe).

Will there be rental car facilities at PAE, or is the market going to be almost entirely local residents? Not sure if there will be enough flights each day to support that.

According to this, there will be at least one car rental agency. "He said he’s been approached by car rental companies but hasn’t made any decisions on which ones will be in the terminal."

How difficult will it be to get on an inaugural flight later this year?

Considering there are no announced schedules or launch dates yet, and is pending government approval... might take a bit.

Would be fun to be on the first flight into PAE

For some reason I am pretty sure that you and some of your friends will be on that flight.

Some airports (EAT, YKM, PUW come to mind) have only 3-4 flights per day, yet still manage to have car rental agencies. The operation at PAE is going to be quite a bit larger than those airports, so I would expect to see some sort of rental car presence.

I spoke to my regular driver about this and he said that what he heard was that there would be an offsite parking facility with shuttle. He was presuming/hoping that there would be some organized passenger pickup/drop off area for private and licensed ride providers (but not Uber/Lyft etc...). Of course, that was his desire

Only this from the article....

Propeller is still determining the number of parking spaces. It will be a lot, not a parking garage.

The company plans to offer valet parking. As a private company, Smith is trying to determine conveniences that travelers and business folks will be interested in.

Maybe that means that travelers drop off their car with their laundry. When they return, they pick up their car and their freshly laundered clothing.

sounds like a marketer looking for a niche

Sounds to me like a lot of overhead. The whole article sounds that way. But being he is the founder and CEO, and it says he has his fingers in everything, I assume he knows what direction they are going. The whole concierge thing, etc, sounds overboard to me. Everett is not really a place where people are looking for a concierge, the terminal can't possibly be big enough for people to get lost in,

I just want a place to fly out of, not a place to hang out. A simple trailer like they used to have at BLI would work for me.

It would be insane not to support Lyft/Uber in passenger pickup/dropoff.

Support as in tax?

Uber, Lyft to pay $3 per-ride fee at some Alaska airports
