Seattle Tacoma SEA Airport Overview

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport SEA, or simply 'Sea-Tac' is gateway to Alaska and East Asia, and point of entry for thousands of passengers on their way to/from cruise ships at Seattle's port. FlightStats selected Sea-Tac for excellence in departure performance among major international airports for the last two years. Skytrax World Airport named it in 2013 as the 'Best Airport Staff Service in North America'

SEA Airport is located between the cities of Seattle and Tacoma, in Washington State's breathtaking Puget Sound region, borders on the intersections of State Roads 518, 99 and 509, and is only 1.5 miles from Interstate Hwy 5.

With three long runways and an estimated 33 million annual passengers, Seattle-Tacoma International is a hub for Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air, and is served by many airlines offering direct and connecting flights to destinations throughout North America, Europe and East Asia. 
Note that Delta offers nonstop service to Tokyo-Haneda, and Shanghai, while ANA has resumed service to Tokyo-Narita airports.

Automated passport control kiosks (APCs) for eligible U.S. & Canadian citizens.

Passenger Pickup: 
(a) Suggest that your arriving party meet you outside the ticketing level (one level above baggage claim), at the less-crowded Departures drive.
(b) Park either on the Terminal Direct level of the parking garage at $5/hr, or use the Cell phone waiting lot (free for up to 30 mins) and wait until your party has collected bags & calls you for curbside pickup.

SeaTac Airport has a main terminal, divided by a Central Terminal Area with concourses A through D, and North and South Satellites.

Current and future Airport Developments: In August 2014 ground breaking took place on the Des Moines Creek Business Park,, south of the SEA which is to be used for airport & light industrial uses - with first phase of construction expected to be completed by 2015.
Starting winter 2015, major renovation work resumes of the North Satellite (refered to as 'NorthSTAR')  - to be completed between mid-2018 & fall 2019 -  which will then be used by Alaska Airlines exclusively, and will include an Alaska airline lounge on its roof top and 3 additonal gates. The renovation project also includes work on the Main terminal.   Alaska continues using Concourses C & D - which are also being upgraded .
