Alaska Airlines Two-Step Ticketing Facility

SeaTac, Wa

The Challenge

Completely reconfigure Alaska Airlines existing ticketing area and baggage-handling system while maintaining uninterrupted operations throughout construction, along with renovation and reconfiguration of secure administrative offices upstairs.

The Solution

Absher worked in concert with Alaska and Port of Seattle representatives to provide a tailored preconstruction services program and create detailed phasing plans that addressed the numerous complexities of keeping the ticketing process operational, maintaining airport security standards and keeping the baggage-handling system fully operational.
