– “Spring Break Travel Is Here – Be Prepared For Your Next Trip to Sea-Tac Airport”
“With area colleges on spring break and high school breaks coming soon, the holiday travel season is in full swing for the next several weeks. That means over half a million travelers will be going through Seattle-Tacoma International Airport just in the next two upcoming weekends (Thursday through Sunday) and the numbers are expected to be higher during the first few weeks of April.
“The Port of Seattle encourages travelers to plan ahead, not only getting to the airport but also picking up, dropping off and getting through checkpoints. The busiest travel days will be Thursdays and Fridays with 137 -146,000 passengers going through the airport each day. As April arrives, those totals will rise to 150,000 passengers per day.
“Peak traffic congestion occurs on the Departure level from approximately 4:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. During the middle of the day, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., both Arrival and Departure drives experience backups. In the evenings, the Arrivals drive experiences heavy traffic from about 8:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m,” quoting the Port of Seattle.
