New International Arrivals Facility

At Seattle -Tacoma International Airport work has been proceeding apace since August on the new International Arrivals Facility which will dramatically improve the experience for international travellers and better meet the region’s demand for business and tourism-related international service. The new facility will increase passenger capacity to 2,600 passengers per hour, while improving the customer experience by nearly doubling the number of gates capable of serving international wide-body aircraft and more than doubling the Passport Check positions and kiosks. This means passengers with checked luggage can use a single bag claim process, eliminating the need for international passengers to ride a train to baggage claim.
