Salinas Municipal Airport has become a leading destination for business aviation on the California Central Coast. Conveniently located 5 minutes from downtown Salinas, 25 minutes from the Monterey Bay area, and 45 minutes from Silicon Valley, many visitors choose Salinas because of ease of access, and bottom-line savings. Our roots have grown deep and wide, allowing us to effectively serve general aviation as our primary customer base.

With complete landing and navigation systems for all-weather conditions, restaurant and catering amenities, conference and business meeting facilities, airframe, power plant and refinishing services, the Salinas Municipal Airport is a first-class destination that is handling the rapidly growing business aviation demands of our region. Salinas has uncongested airspace, complete local political support, no noise mitigation problems, and room for expansion.

Easily handling our 80,000 annual flight operations, this tower-controlled field provides immediate entry into the Silicon Valley, San Francisco Bay area, Monterey Bay, Carmel Valley, Pebble Beach, Big Sur, and the Salinas Valley. Welcome to the beautiful California Central Coast, a place we call home.
