36 Additional Electric Vehicle Charging Stations in Parking Garage

Getting ‘plugged-in’ is easier than ever at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The Port of Seattle recently opened 36 new electric vehicle charging stations in Sea-Tac’s main terminal garage to become the largest provider of any North American airport. The charging stations, compatible with most electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, are free to visitors who pay to park in the garage. Combined with Sea-Tac’s 12 existing charging stations, installed over the past two years, the airport now offers 48 spaces on a first-come, first-served basis.

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.
