Sacramento international airport history

Sacramento airport opened in 1967 as Sacramento metropolitan airport with an 8,600 runway that still exists today. The first real improvements were made to the airport in the 1980’s. There was an Inspection Field Office, in-flight catering facility, an extra runway, and another cargo facility. The second runway had a nice opening with the French plane Concorde. In the year 1998 a rental car facility was established. The same year saw the opening of the current Terminal A. With that opening, the airport also received the name International in its title. However, it took a few more years before the first Sacramento Airport departures were a fact. There was a direct flight to the Mexican city Guadalajara.

Due to the popularity, more and more airlines started offering air routes, both domestic and international. As a result, the airport had to continue to expand and renew. A new parking garage was opened in 2004. In fact, in 2006, free wireless internet service was one of the first in the country. After global economic problems, the airport’s growth stagnated for several years. Nevertheless, a new terminal was being built. Terminal B opened in 2011 for the first Sacramento departures. After that, the growth in passengers and flights continued from 9 million to eventually 13 million passengers in 2019.
