Next week on April 1, Port Commissioners will meet virtually to determine immediate economic relief proposals for Port tenants, and principles to guide our recovery strategies for the broader community.

"In response to the COVID-19 health crisis, The Port of Seattle and The Northwest Seaport Alliance (NWSA) will make sections of Terminal 46 available for trailers, container equipment and storage needs in support of the U.S. Army's Field Hospital 10, which is to be setup this coming week at Century Link Exhibition Center. The NWSA’s approved licensee to operate cargo operations at T-46, Foss Maritime, is uniquely situated and qualified to work with military, hospital, health, and other stakeholders to provide the necessary services as requested. We greatly value the opportunity to work with all entities to protect the health and safety of our region during this time of crisis. The temporary hospital facilities will be for Non-COVID patients."

Governor Inslee’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order is in effect. Port facilities and operations play an essential role in the region’s supply chain and economy. We remain open to serve essential travel and trade needs. We are doing everything possible to support those staying home, while keeping Port facilities safe for those who do essential work.

Still, it is not business as usual right now. The volume of daily passengers departing from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) dropped this week to 6,000 and less every day, down by more than 85 percent. Airlines canceled 321 international flights for March and 567 for April. Airlines flying domestic routes significantly reduced flights across networks.The sudden and severe decline in activity creates new, urgent challenges for every business and worker in our airport economy. 

Next week on April 1, Port Commissioners will meet virtually to determine immediate economic relief proposals for Port tenants, and principles to guide our recovery strategies for the broader community. The agenda and details on how to participate in the meeting will be emailed and posted online shortly.
