Charles M. Schulz - Sonoma County Airport, located in the heart of Northern California’s wine country in Santa Rosa offers scheduled air service into the North Bay region via Alaska Airlines. Other operations in and out of the Airport include air cargo, private and corporate flights, military, search and rescue, fire fighting, law enforcement, and pilot training.
Named after the great Peanuts cartoonist, Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport, customers enjoy short lines, great service and entertaining artwork and statues throughout the Airport terminal depicting Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy and the rest of the Peanuts gang. The Airport runs 12 flights a day, six inbound and six outbound, and is owned by the County of Sonoma and operated by the Department of Transportation and Public Works - Airport Division.
When Alaska Airlines operated by Horizon Air began service in 2007, Airport officials quickly realized the Airport was not equipped to handle current security requirements and the increased number of passengers. The Airport received $1,685,000 in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds in 2009 to remodel and expand the passenger terminal. The total project was $2.4 million, with the difference funded by the Airport with Passenger Facility Charge funds.
