The Port of Seattle is in the middle of 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.
Expect to see some new and different names inside Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The Port strives to find the right 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 6o 135 airport dining and retail establishments.

Sea-Tac Airport is an economic driver for the Pacific Northwest and a gateway to the globe. The Port of Seattle aims 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 9th busiest airport in the country and served 46.9 million travelers in 2017.
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.
Opportunities for local business owners
Currently, 60 of the prime locations are scheduled to expire through 2019. New opportunities will be available for large, small and minority-owned businesses to bid for available spaces. If you’re a business owner looking to do business at Sea-Tac, click here for more information.
