Sea-Tac Airport expects busy Thursday-Friday



SEATAC, Wash. (AP) — Sea-Tac Airport expects Thursday and Friday will be its busiest days of the Memorial Day weekend with more than 95,000 travelers each day.

The airport says the summer travel season typically takes off this weekend and reaches its high point in August. The busiest day last year was August 15, with more than 108,000 people inbound and outbound.

The Port of Seattle says passenger traffic has gone up for 11 straight months at Sea-Tac. April’s total was just 3 percent below the peak year of 2008.
