Serving California’s Commercial Service Airports
The mission of the California Airports Council is to promote and advance the interests of commercial carrier airports in the State of California
The CAC represents the 33 commercial service airports in the state of California. Collectively, our association of airports provides essential services to over 190 million passengers annually, accounting for over 12.3% of all U.S. passenger enplanements. In 2014, eleven of California’s commercial service airports ranked in the top 100 busiest airports in the nation. Almost 4 million metric tons of cargo enter California’s airports per year at over 8% of all U.S. air cargo. In addition we are the nation’s gateway to the Pacific Rim.
The Council serves as a resource to inform and guide policy decisions to promote efficient and safe airport operations for passengers and cargo. The members of the California Airport Council are vital components of the international passenger and cargo transportation infrastructure and seek to enhance public understanding of issues that influence the role of California commercial airports in the world.
