I am writing to support the commission accessibility order for the Port of Seattle to continue to lead
the way in developing the Seattle-Tacoma Airport (SEA) as the most accessible airport in the nation.
The work that SEA has been doing to become the most accessible and inclusive airport has made a
positive impact in the community and has helped make people feel more comfortable traveling
through Seattle.
It is important to continue the commitment to construct and operate SEA as one of the most
accessible airports in the nation.
Thank you,
Kimber Behrends

[EXTERNAL] Public Comment from Ryan Fox (SEA) for November 14 Meeting

I am a member of the Accessibility Advisory Committee for Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. You
may have heard my voice on the overhead announcements at the airport welcoming special travelers and
talking about the FlySEA app. It was an honor to record that. Many friends, family members, and
colleagues have told me they’ve heard the announcement.
I fly in and out of SEA quite often to perform with orchestras in other cities. My journeys give me
insights into how our airport differs from a number of others. I’m very proud of the work we’ve done
regarding signage, comfort areas, the sunflower lanyard program, and other projects and features that
make SEA special. It is proactive, intentional, and groundbreaking work under the leadership of Ms.
Chelsea Rodriguez and others. I look forward to continuing to contribute my effort and ideas in any way I
can to help it be a great airport for all.
Soon, as commissioners you will be considering an Accessibility Order, as well as considering unveiling
the new SEA Access program. Thank you for your attention to these matters. It has been a fun
collaboration working on these. As a person with autism, I understand how travel can impact people in
different ways than you might think. Sensory overload and communication challenges impact my travel
experience. I am also an ambassador for the DO-IT program at UW, so I have familiarity with many
different disabilities beyond my own, and I can affirm how important it is that SEA provide support for a
wide variety of travelers to make their way through the airport efficiently and in comfort. Thank you for
your continuing efforts to create a wonderful space for air travelers!
