Sun Setting at Seattle Airport

After returning from an Alaskan cruise, I had to sit in the Seattle Airport for 14 hours before my flight was to depart. It was a nice treat to watch a beautiful sunset before it was time to board the plane.


Seattle–Tacoma International Airport (Sea–Tac Airport or Sea–Tac) is the largest airport in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It is in the eponymous city of SeaTac, Washington, about twelve miles south of downtown Seattle and is the primary airport for the Seattle metropolitan area.


The airport has flights to cities throughout North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. It is the main hub for Alaska Airlines and its regional subsidiary Horizon Air, whose headquarters are near the airport. It is a hub and international gateway to Asia and Europe for Delta Air Lines, which has expanded at Sea-Tac since 2011.


In 2015 the airport served over 42 million passengers. The airport is the largest generator of vehicle trips in the state, and its 13,000-car parking garage is North America's largest parking structure under one roof.
