Skytrax’s airport rankings are based on passenger comfort and airport design.

In addition to ranking airports, the annual Skytrax rankings survey other avenues of the aviation industry, such as airlines, airline lodges, airport hotels, airport dining, airport shopping, and airport staff.

Additionally, SEA staff have also ranked the third-best in North America, just after Vancouver International Airport and ahead of Denver International Airport.
