Operated by the Port of Seattle, Sea-Tac Airport ranked 20th in air cargo volume in North America in 2015, accommodating more than 332,000 metric tons of total cargo. Sea-Tac is the third largest airport for international cargo on the West Coast (excludes Alaska). The airport offers daily, non-stop service to 81 domestic and 24 international destinations. Twelve international destinations are serviced with schedule all-cargo main deck or wide-body carrier services.

The Airport has approximately 680,000 square feet of leasable space in 15 airside buildings and more than three million square feet of aircraft ramp space.

International freighter and wide-body passenger belly services

Seattle's location in the northwest corner of the United States makes it a great air gateway for cargo from Asia to North America. Sea-Tac also offers a similar flight time to major European air cargo hubs. The airport's sizeable and well-populated market catchment area in the Northwest is served by multiple nonstop freighter services as well as belly cargo capacity available on numerous nonstop wide-body passenger flights. Additional international service is available through Federal Express and domestic flights connecting in Anchorage and other large U.S. hubs. Read more about the Sea-Tac advantage.
