There is no easier way to get to the vacation of your dreams than to utilize the Big Bear Airport. The Big Bear Airport is a private airport for those with their own planes or guests who can charter a plane. Located just three miles from the heart of Big Bear Lake, the Big Bear Lake Airport is a small, general aviation airport that offers a range of services for private and charter flights. Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, the airport provides easy access to the region’s many attractions, including skiing, hiking, fishing, and boating. We love this spacious, convenient airport that brings you high above the bright green pine forests, blue waters, sprawling acres, and incredible vistas.


Plus, the airport is experiencing a new terminal and renovation that will make your experience even more comfortable than it already is. The existing terminal is a bit dated and old, but the new one will blow your mind! The new terminal will have a communal meeting space for large groups, a restaurant with mouthwatering and tasty food, and noise-canceling material and construction that will block out the loud noises from the planes and other equipment.

What can you expect with the new terminal? So many good things! The new airport terminal is an aesthetic, cost-effective, and functional part of the airport that makes it relaxing for you to spend a few hours in this building. The full rebuild offers a solution to help suit the needs of not only the airport visitors and tourists but the community as a whole.
