About Seatac Airport

The Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is located in SeaTac, Washington. It is also called Sea-Tac Airport or simply Sea-Tac. The airport is just west of Interstate 5 where State Routes 509, 99, and 518 intersect. Sea-Tac provides services to the entire Seattle and Tacoma area and the surrounding western regions of Washington State.

The Port of Seattle, also simply called The Port, constructed Sea-Tac and still owns and operates it today. The organization came into existence in 1911 after a band of populists determined that Seattle's port was an invaluable resource to its people, and as such, the people should have some ownership of it. Shortly afterward, the Port of Seattle became Washington State's first public port.

In 1944, The Port constructed Sea-Tac in order to service the region's civilians after the U.S. military took over Boeing Field for World War II operations. They received the majority of the funding for it from the Civil Aeronautics Administration with an additional contribution from the City of Tacoma. The airport ran its first scheduled flights with Trans-Canada and Northwest in 1947.

In 2011, Sea-Tac ranked as the 17th busiest airport in the US with ranks as 25th for total aircraft operations and 20th for cargo volume total. They serve over 32.8 million passengers and have over 310,000 aircraft operations and 280,000 metric tons of air cargo each year. They average around 1,000 aircraft operations daily. Of these operations, 89% are commercial flights, 10% are taxi operations, and 1% are general aviation of a transient nature.

Alaska Airlines has its primary hub at Sea-Tac with headquarters at a nearby location. Horizon Air, their regional subsidiary, is also housed here. Sea-Tac offers flights throughout North America, the Middle East, Europe, and East Asia. In 2011, the five carriers who served the highest numbers of passengers were Alaska Airlines, Delta Airlines, Horizon Air, Southwest Airlines, and United Airlines.

Sea-Tac has three parallel runways west of the passenger terminal that run north-south. They range from 8,500 to 11,900 feet long. The Central Terminal building was designed by Curtis W. Fentress with additional work from the RIBA of Fentress Architects and FAIA. The building underwent renovations and expansions in 2003. The Central Terminal includes four concourses (A-D) and two Satellite Terminals (North and South). The central and satellite terminals are connected via an underground people mover system that was constructed by Bombardier. The only international arrivals that don't go through the South Satellite Terminal are from cities with customs pre-clearance. The South Satellite Terminal handles all other international arrivals, regardless of their departure terminals.

Sea-Tac has three main checkpoints with the option to open a fourth when there are busy periods. All of the gates are accessible to all of the passengers once they have cleared security.

The airport plans to expand the South Satellite Terminal, which has reached its maximum capacity for international passenger interactions. They need to increase the areas for the immigration check stands, baggage claims, and customs declaration. Until these expansions can be made, Sea-Tac continues to use the terminal as is, making accommodations for the large numbers of passengers as they can.

Additionally, there may be plans for a new passenger area at Concourse A that would consist of a tunnel or skybridge over the main terminal. This would allow for additional passenger traffic near the baggage claim.
