EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — The Federal Aviation Administration is expected to announce its decision Monday on passenger airline service at Everett's Paine Field.

The Daily Herald reports ( http://is.gd/cmlefw ) Snohomish County council members received a letter Friday saying the FAA is releasing its decision.

An environmental review in September found that adding 23 commercial flights a day by 2018 would not significantly increase noise, traffic or air pollution.

Two airlines asked for permission in 2008 to fly from the owned airport. Horizon is no longer interested but Allegiant Air wants to start operating four flights a week.

Paine Field is owned by Snohomish County and already handles wide body jets from the nearby Boeing factory, but neighbors have objected to regular commercial service.
