    SANTA ROSA — Passenger volume at Charles M. Schulz–Sonoma County Airport decreased 1.6 percent in May from a year before, according to figures released today. 

    While the the rate of growth was slightly off over the 12-month period, the number of passengers increased to 17,768 in May from 16,485 in April, according to data from Alaska Airlines, the airport’s only commercial carrier.

    In May 2011, 18,049 passengers flew in and out of the Santa Rosa airport.

    In the first five months of this year, the airport accommodated 80,087 of the airline’s passengers, up 1.4 percent from 79,018 in that period in 2011.

    On June 4, Alaska Airlines started flights between San Diego and Santa Rosa, replacing service from Sonoma County to Las Vegas.

    Through its subsidiary Horizon Air, Seattle-based Alaska Airlines offers flights to Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland and San Diego from Santa Rosa.

      I can’t imagin anyone wanting to pay the extrodinarly high price that Alaska is charging to fly out of Santa Rosa. I would cost me more to fly from here to Boise Idaho on Alaska than to fly from Oakland to Hawaii. I think we need a little competition here. Alaska is raking it in.

      I totally agree with SY Walton–the flights out of SR are way to expensive. I wold much rather fly from SF or Oak (bags free) then out of SR!! Next time you do an article for the PD post the prices Alaska is charging plus bag fees–and the intense screening the people for the TSA do in Santa Rosa–harrassing 70-80 year olds for flying to VEGAS-(no longer)–LA-Seattle-Portland–what ajoke they are–I hope the SR airport folds in expansion unless they can get a carrier with competive prices!! And PLEASE GET SOME NEW TSA PEOPLE THE NAZI’S LOST THE WAR WE DON’T NEED THEM IN SANTA ROSA!!!!!!!
