The airport has some passenger service, but is mostly used by general aviation and cargo. It is named for the founder of Boeing, William E. Boeing. The airport's property is mostly in Seattle just south of Georgetown, with its southern tip extending into Tukwila. It covers 634 acres (257 ha) and has more than 375,000 operations yearly. HistoryExcept for the World War II period, when it was taken over by the U.S. government, Boeing Field was Seattle's main passenger airport from its construction in 1928 until Seattle-Tacoma International Airport began operations in the late 1940s. The Boeing Company continues to use the field for testing and delivery of its airplanes, and it is still a major regional cargo hub. It is also used by Air Force One when the President of the United States visits the Seattle area. The August 1946 OAG lists 24 United Airlines weekday departures, 10 weekly flights operated by Northwest Airlines and several Pan Am Douglas DC-3 flights a week to Juneau via a stop at Annette Island Airport which served Ketchikan at the time. Boeing Field currently has no scheduled passenger jet airline service. The last jet service was operated by Hughes Airwest in 1971 and before that by predecessor air carriers Air West and West Coast Airlines with all three airlines operating DC-9 jets into the airport. A proposal by Southwest Airlines in June 2005 was submitted to King County to relocate from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to Boeing Field, but was then rejected by King County Executive Ron Sims in October. A similar proposal by Alaska Airlines (which was a response to the Southwest proposal) was also rejected. Southwest Airlines said it wanted to avoid the heavy fees at Sea-Tac due to its expansion program. The transfer of ownership of Boeing Field from King County to the Port of Seattle was proposed in 2007 as part of a land swap with land owned by the Port.[2] It is in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which called it a primary commercial service airport.[3] Federal Aviation Administration records say the airport had 34,597 passenger boardings (enplanements) in calendar year 2008,[4] 35,863 in 2009 and 33,656 in 2010.[5] Facilities and aircraftBoeing Field/King County International Airport covers 634 acres (257 ha) at an elevation of 21 feet (6 m) above mean sea level.
