October's Meeting Location

SAIL will be meeting at the Sea-Tac Airport Conference Center in October. The following are details that hopefully will make it easy to find. There are two steps getting to the airport and then finding the Conference Center in the airport. There are three options to get to the Airport.

Step 1

Option A. By Light Rail: If traveling via Light Rail you will get off at the airport and walk through the 4th floor of the parking garage, across a sky bridge and up the escalator or elevators to the ticketing level. Continue walking south, keeping the ticket counters on your right, until you get to the international ticket counters (Hawaiian, Lufthansa and British Airways. Skip to step 2.

Option B. By Parking in the Airport Garage: Park in General Parking at the south end of the Airport Garage near the Yellow or green elevators (Rows N-U). Take the elevator to the 4th floor. Walk accross sky bridge #1, between the yellow and green elevator banks, to the Main Terminal. Take the escalator or elevator up to the Ticketing Level. Skip to Step #2.

Option C. By Getting Dropped Off: Request that the driver drop you off on the "departures" drive close to the International airlines or Hawaiian airlines. Skip to Step 2.

Step 2

Behind the international counters you will find a set of stairs that takes you up to the Mezzanine Level. Enter the reception area through the double glass doors on the left for the Port of Seattle Aviation Division offices. The receptionist will direct you to the conference room. Also if you have any diffilculties please call brian (253) 208-1642 or Emily (206) 618-3818 and we will send someone to help you. Also Anthony has volunteered to stand at the bottom of the stairs and direct people. If you need assistance with the elevator please ask Anthony, he can lead you directly to it, that way you won't get lost. Thank You!
