Air Mobility Command Seattle-Tacoma International Gateway

Welcome to the AMC Seattle - Tacoma International Gateway.

Our flights serve bases in Japan, Korea and Guam exclusively. 

Duty Passengers

Check-in for duty passengers on Travel Orders are to check-in at the last six counters located adjacent to HAWAIIAN AIRLINES. Our counters open for check-in 6 hrs prior to departure.  Duty passengers must be in line NO LATER THAN (NLT) 3 hrs 20 mins prior to scheduled departure. Those passengers who arrive after the NLT time will be re-directed to Customer Service for further re-booking information or as PCS orders instruct. 

Duty Standby & Space Available Passengers

Roll calls are conducted at the AMC ticket counter 3 hrs prior to departure.  Due to medical screening, we recommend passengers arrive approximately one to two hours prior to the roll call time.

Space Available seats are often limited, therefore, passenger planning and flexibility is key to Space Available travel.

Passengers are reminded that baggage limitations are set for two bags per individual, limited to 70 pounds maximum weight per bag and not to exceed the dimensions of 62 linear inches. Passengers may carry up to one carry-on bag and it must be able to fit under any aircraft's seat.

We are committed to providing you the best possible service. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns during your visit.


Any aircraft delays will be posted here.
