Help Name a Robot! 

COVID-19 and travel at SEA Airport More Information

November 18 update:

Thanks to your creative genius, we are one step closer to naming the OrderSEA food delivery robot ! With a few months under its tires, our newest friend wants its own special SEA identity. So naturally we called in the experts – our travelers – and you came up with clever robot-worthy names. Now it’s time to vote for your favorite of the three and help us name the robot.

And the final names are …*Drum roll*….

  1. SEA-runner
  2. D-Livery
  3. Aerobot
To vote, email your favorite of the three to SEAsocial@portseattle.org or reply to our social posts on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Food and fun — what more could you ask for from an airport visit? OrderSEA, a mobile food ordering service that includes delivery to your gate, launched this summer at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA). Not standing in line is a bonus, but getting your grub delivered by a robot is next-level cool.  

The OrderSEA robot is small, sleek, and happy to work hard for you. Meal delivery by robot will save you time, keep you out of crowds, and give you peace of mind. And maybe even make you smile.

Name the robot! 

With a few months under its delivery belt, the robot no longer wants to be known as “Hey Robot!” So it’s time for a new name and we need your help. 

Share your creative robot names!
