Update on the Port's COVID-19 response Learn more.

The COVID-19 global pandemic forced massive shifts in our lives. We now expect different behavior from each other and new protocols from businesses to protect our health. We’re living in a new normal.

Your safety, health and well-being are our priority, always. As part of FlyHealthy @ SEA, a few things will be different the next time you travel. We require face coverings, escalated cleaning and disinfecting, implemented physical distancing, and added touchless technologies.

Our team at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) is ready for the incremental increases in air travel now and to come. We currently forecast being down 61 percent this year, but we know a busier terminal and better times are ahead.

Information changes rapidly. Keep up with us on social media with #FlyHealthySEA. Our customer care team is here to answer your questions. Tweet or DM us with a question.
