Discover Seattle Tacoma international airport departures

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is located near Seattle in the U.S. state of Washington. The airport is also called Sea–Tac Airport. It is the largest airport in the northwestern United States. The airport is home to Alaska Airlines and is also widely used by Delta Air Lines. The airport consists of three terminals and three runways. In addition to Seattle-Tacoma Airport, the metropolis of Seattle has two more airports, namely King County International Airport (Boeing Field) and Paine Field Airport on the site of the Boeing Everett Factory. Downtown Seattle is accessible by public transportation (Link Light Rail) and taxi.

Top routes from SEA

It is in the top 10 busiest airports in the U.S. Last year there were 450 thousand SEA airport departures transporting almost 52 million passengers. This was done through one of three runways with lengths from 8,500 to 11,900 feet long.

History Seattle Tacoma Airport

It all started in the year 1947. The first scheduled Seattle Tacoma departures took place in a beautiful design lobby with many windows towards the planes and runways. From that moment on it could already have a capacity of almost 1000 people per hour. Many flights were operated by Western and Northwest Airlines. The first goal of 1 million passengers per year was achieved relatively quickly in 1954. The doubling came 8 years later. This was partly due to the jet planes and international flights from Tokyo Japan. There were also flights with Pan Am on the route to Honolulu.

Over the years, more and more expansions and improvements were made to Sea Tac Airport. This included a connection with the Boeing 747 between Chicago and New York. A few years later, the Supersonic Concorde aircraft also came with SEA departures. The growth made Seattle Tacoma airport the 19th busiest in the US.

With a new runway and the latest technologies, it became possible to land even in bad weather. Ultimately, today the airport is in the top 10 busiest airports in the US.
