In 2019, American Airlines, the world’s largest airline, is expanding its service from Santa Rosa, CA (SRO) to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW). This is great news for people traveling from Santa Rosa, CA, Sonoma County, and nearby cities because they will be able to get direct flights to these hub cities. While San Francisco (SFO) and Oakland (OAK) offer many more flights to many more cities, both in the US and abroad, it can be a real hassle to get to those cities. Santa Rosa’s airport is so much more convenient!
The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports that “Local leaders, who continue to pursue spreading the county’s reach through the airport, were enthused by the news of the additional flights.
‘We have continued to push for expanded options for Sonoma County, but not just more flights, better flights,” said James Gore, chairman of the Sonoma County supervisors. “It’s about better service and providing more connectivity and this is a great example of that.'”
