IATA Code: SEA – Seattle-Tacoma International Airport
International Air Transport Association (IATA) Location Identifier uses a 3-letter code to identify locations of airports throughout the world.
Seattle-Tacoma International Airport or also referred to as Sea-Tac Airport is the primary commercial airport servicing the Seattle metropolitan area in the US state of Washington. It is located in the city of SeaTac which is south of Seattle and northeast of Tacoma. SEA is the largest airport in the Pacific Northwest region of the continent and is owned and operated by the Port of Seattle. The airport has flights to cities throughout North America, Europe, Middle East and Asia. It is the primary hub for Alaska Airlines. It is also a hub and international gateway to Asia for Delta Air Lines.
SEA has about 80 gates with 4 concourses and 2 satellite buildings. I arrived in concourse A from DFW airport. It was exhausting since I just got off of work and went directly to the airport for my flight to Seattle to meet my mum. I got in Sea-Tac Airport at 0045H PST. The airport was ginormous and tidy. They have this high ceilings that made it look more airy and spacious. The whole area was lit with lights not too blinding, just the right glare. The signs were positioned right where tourists can see them and not get lost. The flight boards were well-monitored so, everything that happened in the air, the travelers were aware. It was the first day of Spring but the temperature inside was well-maintained. Security wise, they never failed to make the passengers feel safe and secured. Restaurants and stores were everywhere, lining the hallway to your boarding gates by stalls.
When it was my flight back to Texas, departure was not stressful. It was organized. My flight was at 0500H but the airport was jampacked with travelers. It was still spacious though. The boarding gates were linked thru a train passing through the 6 different concourses.
Sea-Tac Airport is an international gateway of the United States and it is expanding due to the increase number of passengers. Washington State is a must-see state, thus, the airport should be able to accommodate all the guests it can get. It’s a good thing, SEA can do it.
