Welcome to Alaska Airlines newest Lounge, located at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The lounge opened just a few weeks ago at the end of June 2017. Located on the mezzanine level, above the gates C14 to C18, the big windows give you a great view of the tarmac and you can watch the airplanes going in and out of the terminal. Location wise it’s also a smart move because Alaska occupies the C-Concourse and the lounge is now very close to your departure gates. That saves you time which you can spend inside the lounge now instead.
This lounge is evidence to Alaska’s design shift, which they announced and started in 2016 by upgrading the livery of their planes. The water wall inside this lounge reminds me about the Alaska Lounge in the North-Satellite. Alaska’s lounge there is as well more modern and was their first attempt to create a more lively atmosphere.
Getting to the lounge is fairly easy. Follow the C-Concourse all the way down to its end and make a left there. Next to the restrooms you see an elevator you can take to get up to the lounge or go through the glass doors to use the stairs.
Once you step out the elevator you have a view straight on at the lounge and a staff member will check you in at the counter. I used my Priority Pass to access this lounge. I got a short description of the layout of the lounge from the staff and I wandered off to find a seat.
