Help people at SeaTac Airport hear

Understanding clearly in airports can be challenging, even for people with good hearing. Competing noise, echoes, and reverberations combined with accents and dialects can cause confusion, fatigue, and stress–not to mention misheard instructions, unheard gate changes, missed flights, or an inability to follow emergency or safety instructions. But for Seattle travelers, communication is about to improve.

The Port of Seattle aims to make SeaTac Airport the most accessible airport in the country, in time to welcome the Special Olympics to Seattle in 2018. You can help by sharing your experiences navigating SeaTac with a hearing loss, including how you fare on the light rail and at security, gates, and check-in.
