King County International Airport-Boeing Field
Department of Executive Services
King County International Airport-Boeing Field (FAA LID/IATA: BFI, ICAO: KBFI) is one of the nation's busiest primary non-hub airports. The airport averages 200,000 takeoffs and landings each year, and supports $3.5 billion in local business. This in turn supports more than 16,000 jobs, creating $2 billion in labor income in King County. Our 150 tenants directly support more than 5,000 jobs in the regional economy.
The airport serves small commercial passenger airlines, cargo carriers, private aircraft owners, helicopters, corporate jets, and military and other aircraft. It's also home to various Boeing Company operations as well as The Museum of Flight . Thanks to our location just four miles south of downtown Seattle and close to other business centers, we frequently host celebrities, dignitaries, and sports teams.
Boeing Access Road Over Airport Way Seismic Retrofit Project to begin September 30
The City of Tukwila is beginning a construction project to seismically retrofit the Boeing Access Road over Airport Way Bridge.
Lane reduction on Boeing Access Road will begin on September 30 and is scheduled to be 6 weeks. During the 6 week reduction, commuters are asked to find alternate routes and be aware of higher traffic volumes during peak commuting hours.
Traffic volumes could be higher in this area due to the closure of the West Seattle Bridge.
Parking management program on hold
The plan to implement paid parking in the main terminal lot at King County International Airport-Boeing Field will not go into effect on October 1 as originally scheduled. Parking will remain free for now for travelers using the main terminal. Travelers can park their vehicle in any numbered space and give the number to the air carrier when they check in for their flight. Parking also remains free for those visiting the airport's badging office, USCBP station, and Cavu Café.
We are now using a new system, called PlaneNoise, to collect, manage, and track aircraft noise reports from the public. With this new system, there is also a new Noise Hotline number: 206-316-2515.
We also have a new tool, PublicVue, that allows community members to track flights and enter comments using the same technology used by our noise management team.
