Air Service Attraction Efforts
Currently there is no commercial air service from Chico Municipal Airport, however, the City of Chico, local community groups, and other individuals are aware of the value of commerical air service to our community and are making every effort to ensure that Chico is once again served by a commercial air carrier. One of these groups is Jet Chico, a non-profit private-public collaboration with the goal of bringing reliable, convenient and efficient commercial jet service to Chico. If you have questions or would like to get involved please visit their website at JetChico.org.
