The completed $40 Million terminal improvement and modernization project at the Sonoma County Airport opened on August 23rd. 7,000 square feet have been renovated along with the addition of 33,000 square feet which increases the terminal’s size to approximately 56,000 square feet. Airport Manager Jon Stout reported that there are ongoing discussions with the airport’s three commercial carriers; Alaska Airlines, Avelo Airlines and American Airlines. The goal is for Alaska Airlines to expand to new markets in Southern California and Austin, Texas. The talks with Avelo include adding markets such as Boise, Idaho. Talks continue with American Airlines to encourage the company to make seasonal flights to Dallas year-round. Airport management is constantly working to add other airport destinations. Numbers for July show that 55,025 people traveled through Sonoma County which is down 8.5% from the previous year.
