Pilot program launched to allow visitors past security at Sea-Tac Airport
SEATLLE, Wash., – Remember the days when you could wave goodbye at the airport gate as someone boarded a plane? Or you could welcome them with a hug at the gate of a domestic flight? Or grab a bite to eat with a traveler on a layover? Now that opportunity is back as the Port of Seattle debuts the SEA Visitor Pass pilot program allowing the public to enter the post-security side of the terminal even if you’re not traveling at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, the Port of Seattle agency reports.
The Intelligent Aerospace take:
November 26, 2018 -- The halcyon days of nearly two decades ago are back, albiet in a very limited way, at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. With just 50 passengers per day gaining admittance to the secured area, is impact on security wait times should be relatively miniscule, and it will allow people additional time with their loved ones prior to taking to the skies. Since the visitors will undergo the same security screening regular commerical passengers do, the risks to safety will likely be no greater than any ticket holder.
