– “Port of Seattle and TSA ready for August – busiest travel month of year”
“Working K-9s help keep passengers safe and secure”

“August is the busiest travel month at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Port of Seattle are working together to use a key asset to keep passengers safe and secure: K-9s specially trained to detect explosives and explosive components.”

“TSA expects the busiest days at the Sea-Tac Airport security checkpoints to be Sundays and Mondays and again Thursdays and Fridays, with peak times projected to be 4 a.m. to noon and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The Port of Seattle estimates that total Sea-Tac Airport daily passenger traffic (including outbound, inbound and connecting) is projected to reach 160,000 during busy August days.”

“TSA’s use of Passenger Screening K-9s will significantly assist TSA in the efficiency of its screening process.
