Seattle International Airport(SEA): Seattle-Tacoma International Airport commonly known as Sea-Tac Airport is located between its two namesake cities in Washington’s Puget Sound region. The airport is a hub for Alaska Airlines and is served by over 25 other domestic and international airlines. There are nonstop flights to 50 destinations in the U.S. and 15 international destinations including Canada, Mexico, Europe and Asia.

Airport consists of a main terminal with four concourses and two satellite terminals. The satellite terminals are linked to the main terminal by an underground train system. The airport is in the midst of a multi-year capital improvement project that’s scheduled for completion in 2010 to accommodate the growing demand. As part of this project, a completely renovated Concourse A was opened in the summer of 2004. The formerly old and cramped concourse was expanded from seven to fourteen gates and features an arrivals hall with a stunning 70-foot high wall of glass. Art features prominently in the new concourse and throughout the airport. You can get current exhibit locations from the directional signs on the esplanade behind the ticket counters in the main terminal

SEA Airport History: It was in 1942 when Port of Seattle Commission voted to build and operate an airport and two years later a United Airlines plane made the first official landing at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. American Airlines established the first regular scheduled jet service to the airport in 1959.

Seattle's position as a leading seaport became another factor in the growth of Washington State’s premier airport. In 1983 the two joined forces to initiate a Sea-Air cargo service, with cargo brought in from Asia by ship then being flown on to Europe. Cargo continues to play a vital part in the airport's success.

The de-regulation of air travel in the US gave the airport its biggest single boost when the number of airlines using Sea-Tac more than doubled - from 12 to 26.

City of Seattle: Seattle the Emerald City is surrounded by water and mountains and offer its spectators the beautiful sight viewed through many of its neighborhood viewpoints. This city is one of the three ‘gateway’ cities to the Pacific Northwest and is the seat of King County. It is the largest city in Washington State and is a major port city for trans-Pacific and European trade. It is not only fifth largest container port in the United States but also ranked as 25th largest in the world.

Seattle in recent years has proved to be one of the best US cities for settling for business. Many famous companies like Microsoft, Boeing, and have their headquarters in Seattle. Starbucks is another chain of business that has flourished here in past years. Cost of living is considered to be high in this city when compared to other U.S cities. This can be clearly noticed when tourists go for hotel accommodation and restaurants.

City of Seattle History: It was in 1851 when the Denny Party reached Seattle area and named it New York Alki. Soon in 1852, the settlement relocated to Elliot Bay and renamed it Duwamps. It was included as a city in 1869 and named Seattle after the chief of the Duwamish and Suquamish tribe, Chief Seattle.

Year 1870 went fairly well with the discovery of coal near Lake Washington. In the early 1870s the Northern Pacific Railway Company announced that its transcontinental railroad western terminus would be at Tacoma, some forty miles south of Seattle. Despite local leaders' disappointment, Seattle managed to force a connection with Northern Pacific shortly after its completion in 1883, and the town's population soared in the late 1880s. Lumber and coal were the primary industries, but the growth of fishing, wholesale trade, shipbuilding, and shipping also contributed to the town's economic expansion and population growth.

The explosive growth was slowed but not stopped by a devastating fire.The central business district was destroyed by the Great Seattle Fire of June 6, 1889. The fire which started in a cabinet makers shop burned 29 city blocks, almost all railroad terminals and most of the wharves. Amazingly no causalities were reported.

The 1962 World's Fair was held in Seattle, Washington. The world famous Space Needle and Alweg monorail are part of the legacy left by the fair. The site of the fair was expanded and is now called the Seattle Center which houses an amusement park and the Pacific Science Center.

On February 28, 2001 a magnitude 6.8 earthquake, the Nisqually Earthquake rocked the region and a state of emergency was declared. The damage was only moderate, but served as a warning that the area around the Seattle Fault is under a constant threat of natural disaster.

City of Seattle Geography: Seattle is the largest city in United States and is located on an isthmus connecting the water bodies of Puget Sound and Lake Washington. It is sandwiched between the Olympic Mountain in the west and the Cascade Range in the east. Seattle lies in the geographical co-ordinates of 47.37 North latitude and 122.20 West longitudes. The topography of Seattle is hilly and is a combination of lush green hills surrounded by snowcapped mountains and blue waters. Seattle lies on seven hills including Capitol Hill, First Hill, West Seattle, Beacon Hill, Denny Hill and Queen Anne.

The city lies in the earthquake zone and has experienced many earthquakes. One of the prime reasons of this tectonic disturbance is the Seattle Fault. This is a geological fault that cuts across Puget Sound into the city of Seattle. The approximate depth of Seattle Fault is 8 miles. This fault has played a key role in shaping the geography of Seattle

Seattle Climate: Seattle's mild winters and cool summers work together to make the city lush and green brought its nickname "The Emerald City".  Westerly air currents from the ocean and the shielding effects of the Cascade Range produce a mild and moderately moist climate, with warm winters and cool summers. Extremes in temperature are rare and of short duration. Though Seattle is known for its pronounced rainy season and frequent cloudy weather, the average annual rainfall is actually less than that of many other cities in the United States.
