Sea-Tac delta planeAirport is the fastest-growing U.S. airport among the top 20 largest, with traffic up 35 percent. Sea-Tac is Delta’s eighth-largest hub.  Alaska Air Lines and Delta Air Lines are the two primary airlines serving the greater Seattle, Tacoma and becoming a hub for international travelers from Asia.  New routes to Asia were recently added or increased to several air carriers in the region.  Summer time travelers heading to Alaska during the cruise season increases traffic and visitors to our city and airports.

Looking for a few places to see during those long layovers at the terminal?  Seattle International airport has a light rail train which you can ride to directly to downtown Seattle.  You will be in the heart of the city and no traffic congestion or delays.  Spend an hour or two in the city within walking distance to the famous outdoor Pike Place Market, shop at Nike, take a walk to the waterfront…visit the first Starbucks store and sample the fresh food and smell the flowers from local vendors.
