Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) is the eighth busiest airport in the U.S., having served over 51 million passengers in 2019. As a major hub for Alaska Airlines, it’s no surprise that 3 out of the 11 lounges at SEA are Alaska Lounges.

If you’re keen to avoid the hustle and bustle of the general departure lounges, you can purchase day passes to The Club SEA and the Alaska Lounges. Other lounges are reserved for premium cabin passengers, elite-tier frequent flyers, or those with specific credit cards.

Connecting Between Terminals for Lounge Access

Once inside the secure area, passengers can move freely between the different concourses for lounge access. As passengers don’t need to re-clear security, this allows more time to relax in the lounge before a flight. It’s possible to walk between Concourses A, B, C, and D; to reach the satellite terminals, passengers need to ride the Satellite Transit System.

Best Credit Cards To Access Priority Pass Lounges

A Priority Pass Select membership can really enhance your airport experience. Instead of waiting at the gate for your plane to board, you can kick your feet up and relax while enjoying free food and drinks. Better yet, you’ll be able to do this in over 1,400 airport lounges worldwide — including 2 Priority Pass lounge locations at SEA.

Our favorite credit card for Priority Pass access is the Chase Sapphire Reserve®. This is because in addition to receiving access to Priority Pass lounge locations, you also receive a dining credit a Priority Pass restaurant locations. Thanks to your Chase Sapphire Reserve card, you’ll get a $28 dining credit towards your bill ($56 when dining with a guest) at Brewtop Social and Bambuza at SEA.

If the Chase Sapphire Reserve card doesn’t seem like a good fit for you, you could opt for the Amex Platinum card. However, the Priority Pass Select membership that comes with the Amex Platinum card upon enrollment does not include access to Priority Pass restaurants, though it does offer access to several other airport lounge networks like Amex Centurion Lounges and Delta Sky Clubs (when flying Delta).

Want to weigh all of your options? Here are some of the credit cards that offer access to Priority Pass lounges:

Final Thoughts

There are some great options when it comes to airline lounges at SEA. Relax with a drink and admire the distant Olympic and Cascade Mountains that are visible on a clear day, and aviation geeks will love the excellent views of the airfield that many lounges provide.
