TSA anticipates screening more than 215,000 passengers through the security checkpoints at Sea-Tac Airport during the four-day period starting Friday, April 7 – a 3 percent increase over last year. The busiest day is projected to be Friday, April 7 when TSA projects to screen more than 57,000 travelers. Overall, the Port expects more than 537,000 will travel through Sea-Tac (includes all departures, arrivals and connecting passengers) during that four-day period.”
