While Sea-Tac operates nonstops to three Asian and three European destinations, the route structure includes some gaping holes. The airport no longer offers the nonstops to China and Thailand it operated in the 1990s, for instance, and it also doesn't offer nonstops to the high-tech centers of Germany.
But on three different occasions in recent years, Portland International Airport has won foreign routes over the competing Sea-Tac. Lufthansa and Mexican airlines in 2003 chose Portland over Seattle for new international routes to Germany and Mexico. And in 2004, Northwest Airlines launched a Portland-to-Tokyo route.
"In all three cases it was Seattle-versus-Portland, and in all three cases they went to Portland," said Kazue Ishiwata, Sea-Tac's senior manager of air service development
