Last week, I had an excellent experience when flying to Las Vegas from Stockton. TSA was very smooth and quick. The TSA agents were very understanding, and tried to move things along as much as possible. The airport is well maintained and clean, and the gates are very pleasant with comfortable chairs. My favourite feature of the Stockton Metropolitan Airport is to park your vehicle for only $10/night! The parking lot is well patrolled, and the whole parking area is servallienced by cameras. If you get the munchies at the airport, there is an underground station and a restaurant to buy food. If you want a fast snack, you also have vendors in the terminals. Flying out of Stockton is easy, fast, and enjoyable!
I love flying from this airport! The only slight drawback is that parking is charged only by the day (there is no hourly parking). Other than that, there is a good restaurant at the terminal with outstanding rates for an airport. It doesn’t charge you the normal ridiculous charge that most airports do for food. They have a lot of options, with a Subway at the center of the airport, and a lot more under the building. There are loads of different types of food to choose from.
It’s impressive that a little place like Stockton has their own airport! While it’s not fancy, if you’re looking for a country-feeling airport, then this is the right place for you. The food is decent, but it’s not cheap per say. The parking seems to just be a flat rate, but if you can manage the fee ($10/day) then it’s a good deal as well! The airport is trying to expand, by adding a direct flight from Stockton to Hawaii soon.
