Delta customers christen Seattle’s International Arrivals Facility
“Seattle-bound Delta customers on Tuesday’s flight 196 from Incheon, South Korea, were the very first to enter the stunning, new 450,000-square-foot International Arrivals Facility (IAF) at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. This inaugural arrival officially kicked off the Port of Seattle’s phased opening of the IAF.
“Greeted by a water turret salute, the Airbus A330-900neo touched down just as the sun rose over the 85-foot-high aerial walkway, the largest in the world over an active taxi lane. As customers deplaned, they were warmly welcomed with a few gifts to commemorate the occasion.
“‘As Seattle’s largest global airline and the largest future user of this facility, Delta will deliver a customer experience that’s second-to-none for those arriving into this international gateway,’ said Helda Durham – Director of Airport Operations in Seattle. ‘We know the IAF will serve as a memorable front door to Seattle for years to come.'”
