Located seven miles south of downtown San Antonio, Stinson Municipal (SSF, KSSF) is the country’s second-oldest general aviation airport. It is classified as a reliever airport in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems. SSF is a popular choice for general aviation and private jets traveling to and from San Antonio, with its convenient location to the city’s central business district and the Riverwalk. It also provides easy access to all major highways, putting most of the city’s industrial and business centers within reach for travelers.
Stinson Municipal is owned by the City of San Antonio and operated as a public-use facility under a Texas Department of Transportation lease. The airport offers FBO services, fueling, tie-down facilities, and hangars for visiting aircraft. The airport’s main runway is 5,000 feet long, which is suitable for most private jets and general aviation flights. This makes KSSF an excellent choice for smaller, more economical jets and turboprops into and out of San Antonio.
