Try SEA Spot Saver!

A free way to jump the line for TSA general screening security checkpoints.

SEA is one of the first airports in the U.S. to investigate a virtual queuing system as a solution for crowded general screening lines. SEA Spot Saver is a free, reservation-based system for TSA general screening security checkpoints. The pilot program will test if SEA Spot Saver successfully reduces wait times and crowding to better maintain physical distancing.

The pilot is daily through August 31, 2021 at Checkpoints 2 and 5 from 4 a.m. to noon to reduce congestion during SEA’s peak morning travel period. During busy travel periods checkpoints can serve between 40-50% of daily passengers in the peak morning period before 11 a.m. Security screening zones are one of the most tightly constrained and consistently crowded areas of the airport.

SEA Spot Saver is free for all general screening passengers to help provide better screening experience and create efficiency where SEA has the highest demand. SEA Spot Saver allows passengers to sign-up up to a day in advance of travel or once at the airport to experience contact-free, expedited screening without an extra cost, membership, or account. We do not recommend SEA Spot Saver for passengers with CLEAR or TSA PreCheck passengers.

One experience is designed for Alaska Airlines passengers at TSA Checkpoint 5 with Pangiam, and powered by Whyline and Copenhagen Optimization. The second experience by VHT is available to Delta Air Lines and all other passengers at TSA Checkpoint 2.
