Update on the Port's COVID-19 response
To protect your health during COVID-19, many airlines have suspended in-flight meals or offer reduced food and beverage service with pre-packaged items. But tell that to your stomach when you won’t reach your destination for four more hours.
Alaska Airlines and Delta Air Lines — the two largest airlines at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) — reduced food and beverage service on board to limit interaction. Alaska advises, “In response to CDC guidelines, we are minimizing contact and will have limited offerings for inflight food and beverage service.” There is no food or beverage service on Alaska flights under 350 miles. Similarly, Delta made temporary changes to the onboard experience saying, “We’re paring down our onboard food and beverage options in an effort to reduce physical touch points between customers and employees.”
Both airlines encourage you to bring your own food and non-alcoholic beverages, like your own water bottle, to fill before you fly.
Explore this guide for locally-owned and Pacific Northwest-inspired options at SEA for grab-and-go snacks, meals, and beverages to enjoy on your flight.
Today, 85 percent of dining and retail tenants at SEA are re-open, and they have evolved operations to protect the health and well-being of employees and travelers. Enhanced disinfection and personal hygiene and physical distancing protocols are in place. Staff are wearing face coverings.
