They like Sea-Tac Airport, they really do.
Sea-Tac has ranked highly in the Skytrax World Airport awards. The Port of Seattle, which runs Sea-Tac, said the airport was voted into the top ten of four Skytrax categories. They are:
– Ranked #3 for Best Airport Staff in the world (last year, Sea-Tac was ranked #1 in that category).
– #4 for Best Regional Airports in North America.
– #8 for Best Airports in North America.
-#10 in the category of World’s Best Airports Serving 30-40 Million Passengers.
The Skytrax rankings are based on surveys of more than 12.8 million passengers worldwide, said Sea-Tac Airport representatives, who were proud to get the awards.
“Every staff member who interacts with travelers leaves a distinct impression that reflects on our airport, city, region and country. Over 15,000 airport employees representing more than a hundred
companies come together to orchestrate a world-class customer service for our passengers,” said a statement from Sea-Tac Managing Director Mark Reisin.
The Skytrax awards are issued annually and are independent of airports.
