Seattle-Tacoma International Airport will close the Cell Phone Waiting Lot for about a month in order to replace it with a location nearly double in size. Drivers waiting to pick up passengers need to be aware the old Cell Phone Parking Lot will close Tuesday, June 9th. The new location is expected to open in early July.
The new location, just north on Air Cargo Road, will create nearly 100 spaces for vehicles, doubling the size of the current lot. The closure will allow the modification of the new lot with barriers, striping and signage.
The Cell Phone Waiting Lot is a free service from the Port of Seattle that allows drivers to wait up to 30 minutes in the lot until arriving passengers have deplaned, collected luggage and called to be picked up outside of Baggage Claim. Drivers must stay with their vehicles.
Please be aware there is no parking or waiting allowed on the airport roadway shoulders at any time.
The alternative for drivers who normally use the Cell Phone Lot is to use the Hourly Parking at the Terminal Main Garage, which charges $2 for the first 30 minutes.
