The Seattle-Tacoma International Airport has announced several new services aimed at making air travel more accessible for everyone.

Sea-Tac will launch a sunflower lanyards pilot program to better cater to the needs of those with hidden disabilities. The program is a first of its kind in the United States.

The expanded services, like a new pilot program to meet the needs of guests with hidden disabilities, make the airport more accessible and help improve the travel experience beyond the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.

“We are working to make Sea-Tac Airport the most accessible airport in the nation. We are making strides to help our passengers safely navigate a loud and crowded airport by improving signage and increasing options for travel to and from the airport,” said Port of Seattle Commissioner Peter Steinbrueck. “All travelers should feel welcomed and that the airport meets their needs. New initiatives like the sunflower lanyards and improved design make travel more accessible and less stressful for everyone.”

The improvements advance the airport’s objective to make travel as easy, safe, and comfortable as possible.
