Alaska Air, Port of Seattle Unveil Initial Phase of $660M Sea-Tac Expansion

Alaska Airlines and the Port of Seattle completed the first phase of the North Satellite Modernization Project at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Eight new gates, expanded locally-based dining and retail options and a brand-new, flagship 15,800-square-foot Alaska Airlines Lounge were unveiled as part of the $658.3 million project.

Port of Seattle Commission President Stephanie Bowman says, “The old North Satellite worked for 45 years and worked well, but it’s become a living time capsule. We are now headed into the future with a stunning facility that improves the passenger experience with more space, light, and services. Alaska, Seattle’s hometown airline, is a perfect partner to grow with Sea-Tac.”

The 255,000 square-foot expansion features open spaces, natural light, remarkable views and ample gate seating with charging stations. New restaurants and services inspired by the Northwest, include family-owned Bambuza Vietnam Kitchen, Seattle’s beloved Skillet, locally-owned Caffe D’Arte and travel retailer, The New Stand.
