Airport Parking

Seattle–Tacoma International Airport, also known as Sea–Tac Airport, is located between the cities of Seattle and Tacoma in Washington State. It is one of the United States' top ten busiest airports serving more than thirty million airline passengers each year.

The airport serves the Seattle–Tacoma–Bellevue metropolitan statistical area, which with more than four million people, is the 15th largest metropolitan statistical area in the United States. Sea–Tac Airport is the only airport serving large commercial airlines in the Puget Sound area. With this amount of volume of passengers, travelers need to plan their Sea–Tac airport parking in advance.

Sea-Tac Airport

Sea–Tac Airport and the surrounding area has a variety of different parking options for airline passengers. From as little as $6 a day, travelers can park at more than a dozen different private parking lots within a mile of the airport with 24–hour airport shuttle service.

On–site parking at the airport offers convenience but can get expensive at up $39 per day for Terminal Direct Parking, or even more with Valet Parking.

In addition to secure outdoor parking and free airport shuttles, private off–site airport parking lots may offer additional services to their customers including mechanical services, oil changes, car washes, and covered parking.
