So far it’s been a good week for Seattle rankings. Our city was just ranked as one of the best places to live in the US and now the Seattle Tacoma International Airport is getting some much-deserved recognition. Our very own local airport was just ranked as one of the best in the world.

This ranking comes from SkyTrax World Aiport Awards. While it may seem niche, these awards are actually the “most prestigious accolades for the airport industry.” And if you’re wondering, they come from people just like us, customers who participate in the largest, annual global airport customer satisfaction survey.
