The Port of Seattle is nearing the end a long-term dining and retail redevelopment program to increase options for travelers and expand access for small and local businesses:
- 90 percent of the units are expiring over several years, and
- some have already been re-leased.
Sea-Tac Airport is an economic driver for the Pacific Northwest and a gateway to the globe. We aim to deliver a Northwest sense of place to travelers by promoting job growth and creating new opportunities for small and minority-owned businesses. Sea-Tac Airport is the 8th busiest airport in the country and served 49.8 million travelers in 2018.
Expect to see some new and different names inside the airport with a mix of national and local brands for our travelers while also balancing community and Port priorities. The Port is significantly increasing customer choices, business opportunities, and local jobs by expanding from 85 to 135 airport dining and retail establishments.

The Port is committed to exemplary customer service at Sea-Tac Airport, beginning with a high-quality experience for travelers at the airport’s restaurants and stores. In the coming years, travelers will see changes with new, exciting concepts. Dining and retail square footage may grow by at least 35 percent by 2025. Be aware construction will be part of the changes, so some units may be closed until new construction is complete. We appreciate your patience.
