The terminal remodel was completed in 2010 and an Open House was held in September of that year to celebrate the accomplishment. A festive crowd turned out to see the improved terminal and witness the ribbon cutting. Passengers can now fly to and from Charles M. Schulz - Sonoma County Airport with increased convenience and comfort.

The success of Alaska Airlines/Horizon Air gave a clear indication that our 60's-era terminal was out-of-date and much too small for current needs. Although we'd really like to build a sparkling new terminal, those plans are on hold for now. In the meantime, the Terminal Remodel added needed space that better provides for passenger safety and comfort.
The remodel included the addition of almost 5,000 square feet to the existing terminal, expanding the terminal by one-third to approximately 12,000 square feet.

The plans called for:
The exterior front of the building and the restaurant remain the same; the remodel connected the existing terminal and security building to make one large building. The south-facing side of the remodeled terminal is designed as a large glass wall overlooking the restaurant patio area.

Sonoma County Airport received $1,685,000 in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds to remodel and expand the passenger terminal. The total budget for the project is $1,757,000; the difference between the grant and total project cost will be funded by the Airport with Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) funds.
The construction contract was awarded to Murray Building, Inc. of Sonoma in the amount of $1,582,709 for the base project. An alternate item to include a baggage carousel has been approved and will be added to the remodel. The costs over the award amount include permitting, architectural fees, and construction administration. The Santa Rosa office of Mead & Hunt, an architectural and engineering firm, designed the remodel.
