Travis Air Force Base, CA | Featured Military Space-A Air Terminal of the Week

Are you familiar with Space-A Air out of Travis AFB in Fairfield, CA? Located on the west coast between Sacramento and San Francisco, Travis is a popular AMC terminal that has frequent flights, dubbed as "the Gateway to the Pacific". Note: overseas travel via Space-A is limited to Active Duty and Retirees - no DAV, see below.*


If you've been following our Space-A Roll Call posts, you'll see that a common destination from Travis is Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii! It flies there via the Patriot Express (PE) twice monthly. Other common destinations are to Fairchild AFB, WA, Andersen AFB, GU, JB Elmendorf-Richardson, AK, Yokota AB in Japan, Osan AB in Korea, and Kadena AB in Japan.


Occasionally you'll find flights to Phoenix, AZ or Barksdale AFB, LA. You can also find flights going all the way to the east coast, landing at MacDill AFB in Florida, or Norfolk Naval Station in Virginia. If you can get yourself to Norfolk, you can then fly the Patriot Express from there to Europe - PE routes include Naples Italy, Rota Spain (residents of Spain or AD on orders only), and Souda Bay, Greece. Be sure to check out our Patriot Express Schedule posts, usually released within the first few days of the month.

If you're flexible on dates and where you wind up, you can find yourself on a Pacific island, or even all the way to Europe. There is short-term parking available for up to 30 days for Space-A/Space-R passengers (anyone exceeding that time frame is subject to citing/towing). Long-term vehicle storage is available through Outdoor Recreation, and there is lodging on base at the Westwind Inn as well as locally.
