Port of Seattle – International Arrival Facility Program Management and Controls Services


The Port of Seattle is being expanded with an International Arrivals Facility (IAF) at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. With this 1970’s vintage facility in the south satellite servicing a dramatic increase in international flights, the existing Federal Inspections area (commonly known as customs) is beyond its peak capacity. The new IAF is expected to create a higher quality passenger experience, advance the Puget Sound region as a leading tourism and business gateway and serve the traveling public well into the future. It also will help drive the Port’s Century Agenda strategy to double the number of international flights and destinations during the next 25 years.

Planned Facility Characteristics include:

  • The IAF will be a new multi-level, 385,000 square-foot facility located east of the current concourse A
  • An aerial walkway will connect arriving international passengers from the south satellite across the top of concourse A to the new IAF.
  • Creation of a secure international corridor on concourse A will mean more gate positions for arriving international flights with a direct connection to the IAF
