SEATAC, WA- Sea-Tac Airport reports passengers are moving a little more smoothly through security lines Thursday, but the airport is just busier in the summer.


A spokeswoman, Christina Faine, says travelers should arrive at the airport two hours before their flight.


SeaTac averages about 100,000 passengers a day from June through August, compared to about 85,000 off-season.


Regional Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Lorie Dankers also says the summer travel season is increasing numbers at security checkpoints and the agency adjusts its staffing. She says wait times Thursday morning were around nine minutes.


SEA-TAC reported security line backups Wednesday of more than an hour.


An Alaska Airlines spokeswoman said Wednesday it had 150 passengers since Sunday who missed flights because of security delays.
