Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is on track for its busiest year ever, showing a 10 percent increase so far over last year — which was also a record breaker.In 2015, Sea-Tac saw around 43 million passengers, a 13 percent increase over 2014. That year, too, broke records.
There are several factors that could be feeding into this trend, reports King 5 News. “Jet fuel is at its lowest cost since 2010. More people are flying in and out of the Pacific Northwest for business and leisure. Competition between major airlines like Delta and Alaska Airlines has been driving down ticket prices and adding new flights. Airlines like Spirit, Volaris and Xiamen have also added or are adding flights to Sea-Tac,” the report says.
Sea-Tac responded by hiring more staff in customer-service jobs like navigating the airport or getting through security. Over the next five years, the facility will undergo a major infrastructure reboot in its Alaska Airlines north satellite facility. It’s also building a new international arrivals facility to help with the current passenger load and also to be able to grow to see even more international flights.

Since Cheval Blanc, an extraordinary, newly designed and refurbished 72-room hotel owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessey, launched in September 2021, it has been the talk of the town. Le Tout-Paris remarks about its WOW factor … and the hard-to-get reservations for the 30 seats at Plenitude, the intimate, first-floor gastronomic outlet headed by chef Arnaud Donckele, who earned three Michelin stars at Cheval Blanc Saint Tropez.

This brightly colored space, with its raised seating and Fauve-like floor tiles and the adjacent Milanese restaurant, Langosteria, both have access to terraces facing the Seine River, with amazing views encompassing Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower.
