Pass-free air­port vis­its to be al­lowed

The News Tribune - - Local -

The Port of Seat­tle, the gov­ern­ing body over Seat­tle’s sea­port and air­port, is launch­ing a new pi­lot pro­gram that will al­low vis­i­tors past se­cu­rity at Seat­tle-Ta­coma In­ter­na­tional Air­port with­out a board­ing pass.

Port of­fi­cials say lo­cal res­i­dents can ap­ply for the SEA Vis­i­tor Pass pi­lot pro­gram start­ing this week.

The port said in a re­lease that the op­por­tu­nity to “wave good­bye at the air­port gate as some­one boarded a plane” or “get a bite to eat with a trav­eler on a lay­over” is back.

The pi­lot pro­gram will run through Dec. 14.

The port says it will study the fea­si­bil­ity of con­tin­u­ing the pro­gram – if it is suc­cess­ful – per­ma­nently.
