Lounges at SEA Airport

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, also referred to as the Sea-Tac, is the primary airport in the Seattle area of the United States of America. The airport is the largest in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States of America. The airport Spans over 2500 acres in area and is one of the largest airports in North America. 16 different airlines operate off of this marvelous airport. The SEA airport had 103 gates which lie on four concourses

Flights are available from the airport to cities in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Oceania. Alaska Airlines, whose headquarters are located near the airport, uses it as its primary hub.Due to rapid growth in the Pacific Northwest, Sea-Tac International Airport is attracting more flights and airport lounges to serve passengers before they board. Delta Air Lines has made Seattle a major focus of its reach into new Asian markets, while American Express has installed one of their highly acclaimed Centurion Lounges. Meanwhile, Alaska Airlines and United Airlines have shuffled gates and, as a result, each built new lounges. Let us take a look at the lounges that SEA airport has to offer

So it should come as no surprise that there are a total of 10 airline and club lounges located within 4 concourses.

Below you’ll find Airline and Airport Club lounges at SEA listed, along with their hours, locations, and amenities.

United Club

This new United Club opened after United Airlines consolidated its operations in Concourse A, across from gate A9. Heading upstairs, guests are invited into a sleek, modern space - this was actually the second lounge to feature the new design concept unveiled in 2013. The space is narrow but a significant improvement over the former basement lounge in the North Satellite.

Alaska Lounge (Concourse D)

The main lounge in Concourse D is spread across two floors with a fireplace, two conference rooms, and art by SeaTac native Dale Chihuly. The lounge has its own elevator to move between floors, but some will find the stairs more efficient.

Alaska Lounge (North Satellite )

Recently opened in a temporary space in the North Satellite to reduce crowding; it will be replaced by a permanent lounge once the North Satellite is renovated (expected to last through 2020). This space is a little smaller and has a decidedly different style, with white walls and blonde wood. A waterfall greets passengers as they enter. To the left are several televisions, a snack bar, and a mix of bench seating, chairs, and a long wooden table. The bar is located to the right, and unlike the main lounge, it features a row of bar stools so you can watch the game while you enjoy a pint. Coffee and self-serve soft drinks are around the corner. Due to limited space, this lounge has a single restroom.

Delta Sky Club (Concourse A)

Delta began a significant capital investment campaign in its lounge network several years ago, and the Sea-Tac location is one of those more recently renovated. It's also among the most expensive locations to visit with a one-time pass or to purchase a membership. However, it is also one of the few lounges with shower facilities.

Entering the lounge, you'll find a bright blue and white color scheme with two seating areas separated by a long, raised table with its own power outlets and stools. The main seating area contains scattered chairs with high walls that provide additional privacy and a pop-out table to rest your drink. Another row of chairs runs along the window. The upper seating area contains more traditional low-rise chairs with coffee tables that are ideal if you're visiting with a companion and want to chat.

Name Location Available Hours
Delta Sky Club Concourse A near Gate A1 5:00 a.m. to 12:30 a.m.

British Airways Terraces Lounge

British Airways provides one of the more premium lounge experiences (Terraces, First) at Sea-Tac due in part to its exclusive service to international passengers. The bartender will make anything you request and maintain a collection of fruit and mixers as part of a fully stocked bar. Sandwiches and hot food are provided in addition to an extensive collection of snacks and cookies.

This is one of the few lounges with a direct view of the runway, but aside from this and the snacks, the large curving space is one massive collection of padded chairs with some tables. Some of the chairs are oddly mismatched, which may be a design choice or just an indication that its time to renovate. A small "business center" in the back consists of two computers and a printer on the shelf. The lounge can get busy before departures but is almost never filled to capacity.

Name Location Available Hours
British Airways Terraces Lounge South Satellite - Gate S10 2:00 p.m. until last departure
Access Information:
Customers traveling on British Airways and other oneworld carriers on international itineraries. Some other airlines may have access agreements with this lounge.

USO Center

Over $1.5 million in donations helped renovate the lounge in 2015. Fun fact: decking from the USS Colorado was repurposed to cover 1,500 square feet of flooring in the updated lounge. The lounge is 7,500 square feet in its entirety. It now offers showers, sleeping facilities, luggage storage, game equipment, meals, computers, and a family room.

The American Express Centurion Lounge

American Express has been building its own lounge network for several years, with Centurion Lounge locations in cities like Dallas, Miami, and San Francisco. The Centurion Lounge in Seattle started out as a slightly different concept, the Centurion Studio, featuring the same high-end furnishings and complimentary snacks and beverages in a smaller space. As a result, access was more exclusive and some amenities are more limited than you would typically find at a Centurion Lounge. However, the Centurion Studio has since expanded and rebranded itself into a Centurion Lounge.

Name Location Available Hours
The American Express Centurion Lounge Concourse B, Gate B3 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Access Information

Customers with an American Express Platinum or Centurion Card may visit the Centurion Lounge.
