Arriving by plane

Many Seattle visitors arrive by plane at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SeaTac). The municipal corporation that runs SeaTac Airport is called The Port of Seattle. There are many shuttle buses that can take you to Seattle and elsewhere in the region, or you can rent a car, grab a taxi or limo, or take public transportation.

The drive to downtown Seattle from SeaTac Airport will take 20-30 minutes — depending on the traffic. A trip to downtown Seattle from the airport on public transportation takes 30-40 minutes.

If you are driving yourself, from the airport to downtown Seattle, start going towards the AIRPORT EXIT on NORTH EXIT WAY, take the WA-518 EAST ramp, merge on WA-518 EAST, take the I-5 NORTH EXIT, merge on I-5 NORTH and head north for 10 miles. You will see the Seattle skyline approaching as you near downtown.

There are several downtown exits; exit 165 will take you to Seneca Street in the heart of downtown Seattle; if you take exit 167 and follow the SEATTLE CENTER signs, this will take you to the Seattle Center and the Space Needle.
