Fresno-Yosemite International ready to welcome summer travelers

Fresno Yosemite International Airport (FAT) anticipates a busy summer travel season beginning late May and beyond Labor Day weekend. Fully recovered to pre-pandemic passenger levels, FAT is forecasting record passenger volume during the summer travel period.  Travelers are encouraged to arrive early and to check with their airline for any requirements to ensure seamless travels. With flights anticipated near or at capacity, fewer options may be available to accommodate rebooking if flights are missed.

FAT is ready for summer travel with more flights and the addition of new parking to serve travelers.  As always, airport facilities will be clean and comfortable, and friendly staff will be on hand to welcome arriving passengers as well as friends and family who have come to welcome them to Fresno.
