Stockton airport to expand airline capacity

Stockton AirportSTOCKTON – With a $1.4 million federal grant in hand, Stockton Metropolitan Airport should start construction this month on a new aircraft parking apron next to the passenger terminal, allowing it to handle multiple airline flights at once, officials said.

Asphalt paving near the airport’s passenger gates may soften in summer’s heat and cannot bear the weight of large commercial jets. Existing small concrete pads allow the apron to accommodate only one airliner at a time.

The San Joaquin County-operated airport plans to replace the existing apron entirely with stronger concrete, but it designed the project to be built in three separate phases depending on available funds, officials said.

Stockton – New airport chief takes over ‘jewel’

Stockton AirportSTOCKTON – San Joaquin County officials selected a new airport director Tuesday in a choice reflecting an oft-spoken view from county officials that Stockton Metropolitan Airport is not just a place for planes to land and take off – it is an engine of economic development.

The Board of Supervisors unanimously selected Harry Mavrogenes to fill the post. Mavrogenes has been chief deputy county administrator since November 2012, where he has led an effort to create an economic strategy for the county, including setting up an office in Silicon Valley to attract tech companies to the county.
