Seattle-Tacoma International Airport





https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seattl...tional_Airport
Seattle–Tacoma International Airport (IATA: SEA, ICAO: KSEA, FAA LID: SEA) (Sea-Tac Airport or Sea-Tac) is the largest airport in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It is in the eponymous city of SeaTac, Washington, about twelve miles south of downtown Seattle and is the primary airport for the Seattle metropolitan area.

The airport has flights to cities throughout North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. It is the main hub for Alaska Airlines and its regional subsidiary Horizon Air, whose headquarters are near the airport. It is a hub and international gateway to Asia and Europe for Delta Air Lines, which has expanded at Sea-Tac since 2011.

In 2016 the airport served over 45 million passengers. It is categorized in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2015-2019 as a primary commercial service (large hub) airport based on 16,121,123 enplanements in 2012. The airport is the largest generator of vehicle trips in the state, and its 13,000-car parking garage is North America's largest parking structure under one roof.

International Arrivals Facility

https://www.portseattle.org/Business...f_revised.aspx

The Port of Seattle is building a new, expanded International Arrivals Facility (IAF) at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to significantly enhance the international passenger experience, advance the Puget Sound region as a leading tourism and business gateway and serve the traveling public well into the future.

With this 1970s vintage facility in the south satellite servicing a dramatic increase in international flights, the existing Federal Inspections area (commonly known as customs) is beyond its peak capacity. The new facility will also help drive the port’s Century Agenda strategy to double the number of international flights and destinations over 25 years.





Planned Facilities
-The IAF will be a new multi-level, 450,000 square-foot facility located east of the current concourse A.

-An iconic aerial walkway, which will span 900 linear feet at a clear height of 85 feet over the existing taxi lane, will connect arriving international passengers from the south satellite across the top of Concourse A to the new IAF

-Creation of a secure international corridor on concourse A will mean more gates for arriving international flights with a direct connection to the IAF

Project Benefits
-Increase passenger capacity by more than double to 2,600 passengers per hour. Currently Sea-Tac sees daily peak passenger levels averaging over 2,000 passengers per hour for a facility designed for only 1,200 per hour.

-Nearly double the number of existing gates capable of serving international wide-body aircraft from 12 to 20 gates

-More than double Passport Check booths and kiosks (from 30 to 80 booths)
Increase size and number of bag claim carousels from four to seven

-Create a single bag claim process, eliminating the need for international passengers to ride a train to baggage claim

-Create direct access from the IAF to ground transportation at airport drives or garage

-Reduce minimum passenger connection time from 90 to 75 minutes

Projected Opening:
Q4 2019

Projected Budget
$660mil USD

North Satellite Renovation Plan (NorthSTAR)

https://www.portseattle.org/Business...rnization.aspx

The North Satellite modernization project is an unprecedented working arrangement between the Port of Seattle and Alaska Airlines with the goal to better serve passengers. The 40-year-old north satellite received only limited upgrades during its lifetime and is in need of modernization, renewal and replacement of many of its basic systems. This modernization will improve the travel experience from airport drop-off to flight departure – and the working environment for employees. This investment by the port and Alaska, now the sole tenant in this satellite, will include facility modernization, seismic upgrades, enhanced traveler amenities, new gates, a roof-top lounge for Alaska Airlines Board Room guests, plus long-term energy savings and operational efficiencies.





Project Details:
-Increase the number of aircraft gates from 12 to 20

-Extend the building 240 feet to the west, adding about 181,000 square feet to the facility

-More than double the existing dining and retail square footage (from 19,000 to 46,000 square feet), greatly increasing the number and variety of options tailored to the preferences and needs of the Pacific Northwest traveler

-Add an upper level mezzanine with open circulation areas, natural light and a new full-service dining venue with dramatic airfield views

-Enhance the exterior with an iconic design evoking movement and travel visible to arriving travelers

-Renovate the interior with new building forms, natural light and functional interests that are cost effective, environmentally friendly and express Pacific Northwest culture

-Install new dynamic, interactive signage and more robust Wi-Fi service

-Introduce a rooftop Alaska Airlines Board Room lounge with views of the Olympic Mountains

-Sustainable elements including a living wall and collection of rainwater to supply flushing water to the restrooms throughout most of the year

-Make seismic upgrades throughout the facility plus mechanical, electrical, communications, HVAC, and plumbing systems replacements and upgrades

-Refresh north satellite transit system lobby, refurbish baggage handling, and make access walkways, elevators and stairway improvements plus related main terminal enhancements

-Introduce aircraft tri-taxi lane changes around the north satellite

Projected Completion
Spring 2021

Projected Budget
$636mil USD

Paine Field

Paine Field, also known as Snohomish County Airport (IATA: PAE, ICAO: KPAE, FAA LID: PAE) is a small international airport located in unincorporated Snohomish County, between Mukilteo and Everett, Washington. It is served by a Federal Aviation Administration control tower, and has precision and non-precision instrument approaches available to pilots.

Boeing's main wide body assembly plant is located at the North end of the air field. Most of the pictures of finished Boeing 747, 777, 787, and 767 aircraft seen in this forum are taken from Paine Field.



Currently, there is no commercial service to Paine Field, but in March 2016, the FAA approved commercial flights to begin flying into Paine Field:
http://www.bizjournals.com/seattle/n...ommercial.html


Commencement of commercial flights must wait on the construction of a new passenger terminal. Construction was slated to begin sometime in 2016, but as of yet, no construction has begun:

Great posts! Thanks for starting this thread.

That last shot includes the world's largest building btw...basically 100-acres and 100' tall, or something like that.

I love Sea-Tac. It's one of the rare big airports where you can walk from the terminal to the surrounding hotel row, i.e. off the property. Its small acreage means less of a gap in the city. The train to Downtown Seattle is one of the quicker equivalents I've seen (30 min to near end of DT) due to frequency, speed, and proximity in combination.

And wow are these expansions needed.

The Seattle area is lucky to have five airports that can handle a jetliner -- Sea-Tac, the three Boeing plants, and Joint Base Lewis McCord. Glad that passenger service is planned for Paine Field...every big city needs a second airport, and this should help move a portion of the commuter stuff away from Sea-Tac to free up space for the bigger stuff.

Even after these expansions, Vancouver Int'l Airport will still look far better than Sea-Tac:

$550M Sea-Tac project starts Friday
By JOURNAL STAFF

The Port of Seattle and Alaska Airlines are breaking ground Friday on the $549.9 million North Satellite modernization at Sea-Tac Airport.

Eight new gates will be added — for a total of 20 — and the satellite will be extended 240 feet to the west, with another 181,000 square feet.

The reworked terminal will have new gates, an upper-level mezzanine, twice as much dining and retail space, and a rooftop lounge for Alaska Airlines with views of the Olympic Mountains and downtown Seattle.



The North Satellite modernization will add eight new gates, and more retail and dining space.

Amex expands lounge at Sea-Tac Airport
By JOURNAL STAFF

When American Express opened its Sea-Tac Airport lounge in 2015, space was at a premium and it had to be scaled down from Centurion Lounges in other parts of the country.

Now the 3,100-square-foot Centurion Studio has been expanded to 4,500 square feet and renamed Centurion Lounge. Amex unveiled the new space across from Gate B3 last week.

Along with additional space, expanded seating and views of Mount Rainier, the lounge now has a full bar, two additional restrooms and a shower suite. The bar offers Seattle-inspired cocktails developed by mixologist Jim Meehan and an expanded wine list curated by wine director Anthony Giglio.
