Crowds Seen at Sea-Tac Airport Amid Flight Delays and Cancellations

Large crowds were seen at check-in areas of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Tuesday, January 4, as the airport saw continued delays and flight cancellations.

Service at the airport has been impacted by severe weather across the US, and COVID-19-related staffing shortages, according to local reports.

On Tuesday, dozens of flights departing Sea-Tac were delayed or canceled, according to the tracking website FlightAware. The airport’s rate of delays and cancellations, however, was lower than that of East Coast airports such as Reagan National and Newark Liberty.
