Welcome to FlyHealthy @ SEA

Safety and well-being come first at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA). In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, and working closely with our partners, we are committed to keeping our family — you, our employees, and our community — safe.

Right now, our airport continues to operate with just 10 percent of our usual passenger volume. Most passengers continue to follow state guidance to avoid non-essential travel, actions that help us maintain the health and safety of those performing essential tasks.

    We are looking forward to the gradual easing of travel restrictions as our region and country stop the spread of COVID-19. We are using this time to prepare for the next phase of re-opening our economy and getting ready for higher volumes of activity at the airport.

    FlyHealthy @ SEA is a multi-phased strategy to ensure the health and well-being of passengers, visitors and workers.

    Preparing to Travel — Recovery Ready

    We took immediate actions. The next time you visit SEA, your experience will look and feel different, including:

    • Passengers, visitors, and workers are required to wear face coverings in the public areas of SEA
    • Signage for reminders and spacing to honor physical distancing
    • Plastic protective barriers that buffer travelers and airport employees
    • Frequent disinfection with medical-grade cleaning products 
    • Added 258 hand sanitizer stations throughout the terminal for your use. Download the SEA App with our interactive map of hand sanitizer locations. 
    • Each dining and retail tenant at SEA was required to develop COVID-19 operational readiness plans detailing procedures such as physical distancing requirements, sanitation and personal hygiene protocols, personal protective equipment, and how to provide services while limiting close interactions.
    • We are developing a plan to implement temperature checks for departing domestic and arriving international passengers by June 9.

    This is just the beginning. We are hard at work planning for a busier terminal and better times ahead.
