SEATTLE (AP) — Port of Seattle commissioners are looking a major expansion at Sea-Tac Airport to accommodate expected passenger growth over the next 20 years.

The Seattle Times reports a new international arrivals facility planned for 2019 is just a beginning. There also are plans for adding 35 more airplane gates to the current 81 gates.

Airport officials discussed plans Tuesday for a projected 66 million passengers a year two decades from now. Last year, 37 million passengers passed through the airport.
