Sea-Tac Airport has won multiple honors in a survey of airline passengers conducted by a British research firm.
Among those was third best airport staff in the world, fourth best among North American regional airports, eighth best among all major North American airports and 10th best among world airports serving between 30 million and 40 million passengers per year.
Skytrax Research of London announced those rankings in ceremonies in Barcelona, Spain. The rankings were derived from passenger surveys.
Another Pacific Northwest region airport, Vancouver, was rated in those same surveys as the best airport in North America.
Vancouver's airport was ranked ninth in the world. It was the only airport among the world's top ten that is located in North America. That list, headed by perennial favorite, Singapore Changi, is dominated by Asian and European airports.
In second place is Seoul's Incheon International Airport followed by Munich, Hong Kong and Amsterdam. In North America, Vancouver is followed by Cincinnati, Denver, San Francisco, Toronto, Atlanta, Halifax and Sea-Tac.
