About STS


The Charles M. Schulz – Sonoma County Airport was founded in 1941 when the County of Sonoma purchased 339 acres of agricultural land and began constructing a runway using grant funds from the Civil Aeronautics Authority (predecessor to the Federal Aviation Administration). The U.S. Army took over in 1942 and added 826 acres, extended the original runway, built a second runway, added taxiways, apron areas, and other facilities. The County resumed operation of the Airport in July 1946 and continues its operation as an Enterprise Fund within the Department of Transportation and Public Works.

Since the county resumed operation of the Airport, additional hangers, an Air Traffic Control Tower, a fire station and an airline terminal building have been constructed. In March of 2000, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors voted to change the Sonoma County Airport’s name to Charles M. Schulz – Sonoma County Airport. The name change was in honor of the famous “Peanuts” comic strip cartoonist who lived for many years in Sonoma County, leaving a legacy with his beloved characters’ whimsical antics.

The airport is currently served by Alaska and Horizon airlines with over 260,000 passengers arriving and departing from the facility.
