Major Airline Realignment Projects
The airline industry continues to evolve, and those changes -- including mergers and the associated consolidations of activities -- are affecting various airports around the country including Sea-Tac Airport.
These realignments also require other individual airline operations to shift gate, ticket counter, and office locations within Sea-Tac. More Info
Flight Information Displays
The NorthSTAR program is a joint project between Alaska Air Group (AAG) and the Port of Seattle. The goal of this program is to provide an upgraded curb to seat experience for the customer as part of AAG's customer service initiative: to foster hassle-free travel reflected in traveler-friendly innovations emphasizing ease-of-use and spaces that communicate comfort and style. This program is designed to better serve passengers, employees and improve operational efficiency. More info.
Sea-Tac is replacing 180 flight information displays throughout the terminal and concourses. This project will deliver advanced capabilities that better serve travelers, including visual paging, notifications, and flexible information display.
Consolidated Rental Car Facility
With 45 million annual passengers expected to travel through Sea-Tac Airport by 2021, the Port of Seattle began construction of a consolidated Rental Car Facility (RCF) to meet the current and future demands of the traveling public. The RCF supports all airport-related rental car operations at one convenient location adjacent to the airport in the City of SeaTac. At the time of completion, construction of the facility supported approximately 3,000 jobs. In addition, the port will pay into the state tax coffers over $25 million in sales tax for the entire program.
- Opened May 17, 2012
- Total Budget – $419 million, including bus purchase
- Five floors / 2.1 million total square feet
- Processes approximately 12,000 to 14,000 rental cars on a peak day
