SEATAC, Wash. (AP) -- A new rental car facility for Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is expected to open to the public in April.

The five-story structure has space for 5,400 vehicles.

Airport spokesman Perry Cooper says the contractor is expected to turn the facility over to the Port of Seattle in February. After that, systems will be tested and rental car companies will finish building counter and office spaces.

Buses will shuttle travelers between the airport and the rental car facility, which is located near the Tukwila light rail station.

The new space for rental cars will free up about 3,200 spaces inside the main airport terminal garage.
