Charles M. Schulz - Sonoma County Airport airport codes|STS|KSTS|STS is an airport located a few miles northwest of Santa Rosa and south of the city of Windsor serving Sonoma County and the surrounding areas of Wine Country in California. [cite gnis|1653988|Sonoma County Airport] The airport has two runways.

From 2001-2007, it was exclusively used for general aviation. Prior to that, commercial airline service was by United Express, which was stopped because their flights (to San Francisco and Los Angeles) were not profitable.

In March 2007, Horizon Air returned commercial aviation service to Santa Rosa by inaugurating flights to Seattle/Tacoma and Los Angeles. Horizon added service to Portland, OR in the Fall of 2007, and to Las Vegas, NV in Spring 2008. The additional routes brought new hope that other airlines will start flying into Sonoma County.

The airport is named after Charles M. Schulz, the famed cartoonist of the "Peanuts" comic strip, who lived and worked in Santa Rosa for more than 30 years. The airport's amusing logo features Snoopy in his "World War I Flying Ace" attire, taking to the skies on top of his "Sopwith Camel" (i.e. his doghouse).

Airlines and destinations

*Alaska Airlines
**Horizon Air (Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle/Tacoma)

Possible future airlines/destinations

Sonoma County Airport is actively engaged in securing additional commercial air service. Options under consideration include both increased flights to their current destinations and addition of other new destinations. These include Denver, Salt Lake City, Reno, and North Las Vegas. The Denver service would be operated by Frontier or its affiliate; the Salt Lake City route would be flown by Delta Connection, possibly subsidized by a joint incentive package by both airport authorities; and the Reno and North Las Vegas routes would be operated by Vision Airlines.
