It’s exciting times down at Alaska Airlines’ hub airport in Seattle–Tacoma International Airport (SEA).
As of Wednesday, June 21, 2023, the doors of Alaska’s most popular airline lounge at Seattle are reopen!
“The revamped D Concourse Lounge in Seattle will be a huge hit with all those travelers who visit,” said Sangita Woerner, senior vice president of marketing and guest experience at Alaska Airlines.
Here’s what Alaska Airlines passengers can expect from a visit to their new-and-improved D Concourse Lounge at Seattle.
Alaska’s All-New D Concourse Lounge in Seattle
Alaska’s reimagined D Concourse Lounge in Seattle (SEA) is part of a $30 million project to improve its lounges across its network.
The new space, open now, boats a massive 50% extra seating.
Passengers who enjoy a bit of plane spotting before their flight will be able to make the most of the additional loungers up on the mezzanine level.
Practically located on the first level of the space, passengers will find a new barista station — perfect for those who tend to breeze through the airport last minute with just enough time to grab a coffee.
“We added thoughtful touches – from being able to quickly grab a delicious hand-crafted espresso beverage to more comfy chairs to relax in,” said Woerner.
As for the design, a stunning piece by Coast Salish artist Louie Gong (Noosack) takes pride of place as an important feature in the lounge.
Future updates planned for the lounge include the introduction of new hot food options.
How To Access Alaska’s Lounges
Alaska’s lounges are mainly on the West Coast with locations in Anchorage (ANC), Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), Seattle (SEA), and Portland (PDX), with a bonus East Coast lounge at JFK’s Terminal 7 in New York.
The simplest way to gain access is by holding a paid first-class or award ticket on an Alaska Airlines-operated flight.
Gaining access for free is also possible for holders of an Admirals Club membership or the Citi®/AAdvantage® Executive World Elite Mastercard®.
Alternatively, you can pay for an annual membership or purchase a $60 one-time access pass at Alaska’s lounges at LAX, JFK, and SFO.Hot Tip:
If you’re a frequent Alaska Airlines flyer, then the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® credit card could be a great travel companion.
If you’re passing through Seattle any time soon and have access to Alaska’s lounges, then the revamped D Concourse location is definitely worth a visit.
Whether it’s for a quick coffee or some plane spotting, you’re in for a great time.
