Family Friendly

Join us at Experience SEA @ N, an art and culture-filled celebration marking the opening of all passenger gates and the end of major construction at the new N Concourse at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA).

This bigger, brighter, and bolder space celebrates the Pacific Northwest through dining and retail options, a diverse art collection that reflects the culture, spirit, and history of the region, nature inspired design, and a brand-new performance stage.   

Workers logged more than 2.1 million labor hours to build the facility over four years. The North Satellite, home of the N Concourse, proudly include 10 new passenger gates, a spectacular Alaska Airline’s lounge, the airport’s first system to collect and reuse rainwater, and many built-in amenities to make travel effortless for all.  

To celebrate the achievement of this beautiful building, SEA and Alaska Airlines invite you a free, special celebration of Pacific Northwest craftsmanship and culture on November 4, 2021.
