Santa Rosa Airport: Cheap Flights, Tickets and Travel Deals

As the largest city in Sonoma County and one of the largest in the San Francisco Bay area, Santa Rosa is an ideal base for exploring the world-famous Napa Valley wineries and the other natural and cultural delights this region has on offer. The city also has a proud association with the Peanuts comic strip and was the home of Charles M. Schulz for 30 years.

It is no surprise then that the Santa Rosa Airport, officially the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport, is named after the city's most famous resident. The airport's logo even features Snoopy in vintage flying gear atop his red dog house! While not a large airport, there are a number of useful connections from here to a handful of American airports.
