Port of Seattle

Founded in 1911, the Port of Seattle owns and operates Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, two cruise ship terminals, one grain terminal, a public cargo terminal, four public marinas, and manages a number of real estate assets for financial return and economic advantage.

The Port’s Airport and Maritime operations currently generate nearly 200,000 jobs and $7 billion in wages throughout the region. Over the next 22 years, the Port’s “Century Agenda” seeks to create an additional 100,000 jobs through economic growth while becoming the nation’s leading green and energy-efficient Port.

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport – the nation’s 13th busiest – handled 37.5 million passengers and more than 319,000 metric tons of air cargo in 2014. With a regional economic impact of more than $16.3 billion in business revenue, Sea-Tac generates 171,796 jobs (109,796 direct jobs) representing more than $2.8 billion in direct earnings and $565 million in state and local taxes. Twenty-five airlines serve 78 non-stop domestic and 21 international destinations.

In 2016, the cruise ship terminals at Bell Street Cruise Terminal at Pier 66 and Smith Cove Cruise Terminal at Terminal 91 will serve seven major cruise lines. Each ship call brings in $2.5 million to the local economy. Overall, the Seattle cruise industry generates 3,647 jobs and $441 million in annual business revenue.

Five commissioners, elected at large by the voters of King County, Washington, serve four-year terms and establish Port of Seattle policy. The chief executive officer, in carrying out these policies, leads 1,700 employees and oversees port programs.
