A key hub for Southwest Airlines (the carrier is responsible for transporting 50% of its annual flight base); the airfield transports an estimated 9 million foreign and domestic passengers per year.

The facility has two terminals and 32 passenger gates; the airfield itself sets on 6,000 acres, making it one of the biggest in the West Coast. Free Wi-Fi access is available throughout both terminals. Sacramento International’s B Terminal recently underwent a sheer, $1 billion modernization upgrade, in effect expanding it to three times its original size and installing an automated people mover system for visitor convenience.
