The Port of Seattle is committed to exemplary customer service at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, including a high quality experience for travelers at the airport’s restaurants and retail locations.
To provide more dining and shopping options to meet growing passenger demands, as well as more opportunities for local businesses and workers, the airport is launching an exciting project that will markedly change the heart of the airport — the Central Terminal Renovation Project.
Don’t fear, the iconic glass wall is not going away. However, those dramatic views of the airfield and the Olympic Mountains will be interrupted during construction. And there are still plenty of food and retail options throughout the airport!
