Best Airport Solutions for Napa

Charles M Schulz Airport – If you are fortunate enough to be visiting from Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Phoenix, or Las Vegas, you can hop on an Alaska Airlines flight and land directly in Sonoma County Wine Country at Charles M. Schulz Airport. By far one of the best choices for transport from Sonoma to Napa Valley, Beau Wine Tours will meet you at the terminal then whisk you off to your destination in comfort.

Sacramento International Airport – Looking to avoid the Bay Area traffic? SMF is about 1.5 hour drive away from Napa. Add about 15-20 minutes during regular commute times, and add more time if you fly in on a Sunday afternoon (keep in mind if you plan to golf on Monday morning).

Oakland International Airport – Although it is only about 30 miles from its sister airport SFO, its relative location on the bay often means fewer delays due to fog. OAK is roughly a 1.5 hour drive (add 40-60 minutes during commute times). Security at OAK can be slow, at times. Allow an extra 15-30 minutes on busy flying days.

San Francisco International Airport – SFO has the most flight options and flexibility if that is what you are after. SFO is roughly a 1.5 hour drive (add 40-60 minutes during commute times). For visitors who prefer travel by train to Napa, the The Bay Area Rapid Transit System (BART) connects directly to the airport.

After You Land

Look at rental car costs at each airport. Sometimes price differences are even greater than differences in airfare costs.

If you choose not to rent a car, take one of the nine daily Airporter shuttles to/from SFO, OAK offered by Evans Transportation. No reservations are required for the 2-hour ride to Napa Valley. Cost: $29 one-way, $20 for children 12 and under. Check the list of airport pick-up times before you travel.

Napa Valley Tour and Transportation is the go-to concierge for luxury rides from the airport to the valley.

Napa Airporter offers door-to-door shared airport shuttle service every day with prices ranging between $75 and $130 for the first passenger, depending on your Napa Valley destination. A $10 additional fee applies to each extra person in your party. For an added $20 flat rate, the shuttle offers non-stop exclusive (non-shared) service for your party only. Same-day or late night (8 p.m. – 4 a.m.) reservations require an additional charge. Napa Airporter also offers town car service (1 – 4 people) for $135 – $175, depending on your Napa Valley location. Reservations are required for all services and a full list of rates can be found on the Napa Airporter website.
