Sea-Tac Makes Green Restroom Enhancements
Next time you visit the restrooms across from Vino Volo, you'll be helping to reduce waste at Sea-Tac. Among the enhancements are four reduced-volume faucets with an integrated air dryer, that allows customers to wash and dry hands quickly in a single location; new, wall-mounted touchless hand dryers further eliminate paper waste; dual flush valves installed on toilets, another water saving feature, use approximately one-third of the water of a standard model; and two sinks use solar technology to harness the power of fluorescent lights, using the energy to operate the faucets.

Now, more water filling stations
In a move to increase passenger convenience, we have installed three new water bottle filling stations. Say goodbye to awkwardly tipping bottles while chasing water fountains. Find these new stations post-security:
• Across from Gate A-5 near the Africa Lounge • Across from Gate A-2 north of Checkpoint 2 • At the beginning of the D gates between Checkpoint 4 and Gate D-1 • Middle of the central terminal food court.
New International Ticket Counters
With international traffic continuing to rise, the Port of Seattle opened 14 new full-service international ticket counters today at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The move looks ahead to current and future needs as intercontinental traffic has increased 121 percent in the last 10 years, making Sea-Tac the fastest growing international airport on the West Coast.

International passengers now have the option of using a Self-Service Automated Passport Control Kiosk
Instead of filling out a declaration card and taking their travel documents to a CBP officer, passengers who are eligible and choose to use Automated Passport Control can proceed directly to a self-service kiosk in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection passport-control area. Watch the video
Three More Years of Live Music!
You've seen them in the terminal, now you'll be able to count on seeing musicians play regularly over the next three years, as the port just approved a 3-year deal with airport tenants to extend the popular program. Read more.
Flying Hawaiian? Tag your own bag!
Hawaiian Airlines recently added the opportunity to tag your own bag using the quick check-in kiosks. Hawaiian is leading the way, as the kiosks allow passengers to check-in and receive boarding passes for nine different airlines but Hawaiian is the first to use the technology to also print out bag tags. Just print out the bag tags, attach them to their bags and use an expedited lane to drop-off the bag.
