Sustainable Airport Master Plan for Near-Term Projects

More residents and visitors are coming this way. The Sustainable Airport Master Plan’s near-term projects provide the blueprint for making changes at Sea-Tac Airport to meet growing demand over the next ten years. More than 30 different projects work together to accommodate the 56 million more passengers we anticipate by the year 2027, all while improving safety and security.


While current projects like the North Satellite modernization and the new International Arrivals Facility help Sea-Tac Airport reduce congestion and improve efficiency for today’s travelers, it’s also important to plan for tomorrow. The Sustainable Airport Master Plan, a federally reviewed plan that documents the airport’s plans to serve the region, focuses on serving the residents and visitors who will be here in future decades.


Specifically, these projects seek to meet forecast demand for passenger travel and cargo services, improve airfield operational efficiency, comply with FAA standards, and increase fuel capacity to meet the Port’s sustainable aviation biofuels initiative. Near-term projects will addresses forecast demand through 2027, while a long-term vision will cover later years.
