Passing the Time at SeaTac Airport

If you have a significant layover at SeaTac Airport, don’t fret, there are actually plenty of things that you can do.

Depending on how much time you actually have, you may or may not want to wander very far from the airport itself. You should always plan to be back at the airport 2 hours before your flight. This is especially true for Seattle, because traffic can change instantly and it would be shame to get caught in it and miss your flight. So plan accordingly.

If you have at least a couple of hours then you’ll be free to visit the stores in your local vicinity. Within 10 minutes from the airport you’ll find:

Southcenter Mall

Want to shop for asian groceries? Watch a movie in a theater? Eat good food? You’ll find it all here. With over 200 stores to shop through, you can pass the time in a hurry. There are even massage parlors to help you relax before your flight!


If you’re like me, then maybe you’ve dreamt of what it would feel like to fly. The experience you get at iFly might be one of the closest feelings you’ll get to actually flying. By gearing up and hopping into one of the designated fly rooms, you’ll be able to hover in the air like superman. If you’ve never seen it before, check out this link (
