About Seattle international airport arrivals

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (IATA abbreviation: SEA) is one of the busiest airports in America. The passenger number is over 51 million passengers a year. The Seattle arrivals kept rising over the years until the pandemic.  The airport is also known as Sea-Tac Airport, and is actually located in Tacoma, a neighboring town directly south of Seattle. It is home to Alaska Airlines and its subsidiaries, Horizon Air which you find in Concourse C of the terminal. The airport is located on a piece of land of almost 4 square miles. This is certainly not one of the largest airports in the US, but it is well appointed. There is 1 large terminal which is then subdivided with Concourse A to D and there is a North and South Satellite building to process flights. Three runways are available.

Busiest flight routes

The Port of Seattle is a government agency that had the airport built in 1944. The reason for this was that Boeing Field, an airport south of Seattle, was used by the military during the WW2. The first scheduled flights finally took place in the year 1947. These Seattle arrivals came from the carriers Northwest and Trans-Canada. In the years that followed, more and more airlines came from Boeing Field to Seattle Tacoma Airport. They started with 4 runways that were extended over time, improved and adapted to eventually 3 runways. Seattle Tacoma arrivals continued to increase with more airlines such as Western and Pan Am as well as Alaska and Pacific Norther. About 10 years after the first scheduled flights, there were already more than 200 arrivals in the week.

The first direct flight from Europe came with Scandinavian Airlines and Pan Am. Concourses were built at the current terminal to allow more aircraft to connect to the terminal. In the meantime, there were already dozens of gates with connections to the aircraft with a footbridge. This mainly happened in the 1960’s. The main terminal itself was also expanded, increasing the surface area by four times. Since the maximum space had been reached, 2 new satellite terminals were built in the early 1970’s. These could be reached from the main terminal with an underground train.

The final third runway as it is today was not opened until 2008. It has the facilities to even have arrivals with low visibility. As Delta Air Lines expanded in 2014 to use Seattle as a transpacific hub, flights increased rapidly.
