Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (IATA: SEA, ICAO: KSEA, FAA LID: SEA), also known as Sea-Tac Airport, is located in SeaTac, Washington, United States at the intersections of State Route 518, State Route 99 and State Route 509, about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) east of Interstate 5. It serves Seattle and Tacoma, Washington as well as the rest of western Washington. The airport is a hub for Alaska Airlines, whose headquarters is located near the airport, and its regional subsidiary Horizon Air. Delta Airlines also has a hub here. The airport has service to several destinations throughout North America, Europe and East Asia.

"Welcome to Sea-Tac!" is said in an automated announcement in the airport's parking garage and skyways, in reference to the nickname that locals of the Seattle metropolitan area have given it. The name came before the city of SeaTac, Washington was founded.

Statistics

In 2014 Sea-Tac served nearly 37 million passengers, making it one of the busiest airport in the United States.

The top five carriers at Sea-Tac in number of passengers carried in 2014 were Alaska Airlines (51.46%), Delta Airlines (15.33%), United Airlines (8.23%), and Southwest Airlines (8.03%).

FlightGear Status

In FlightGear Sea-Tac has a long way to go. We need to add Jetways and Terminal Textures and AI aircraft. Since this is one of my favorite airports in the world I am helping collaborate. Eventually I would like to make it one of the more realistic North Western airports. -- User:Sssseeee11
