MCE: The Airport

About the Airport
The Merced Regional Airport offers a short commute, free parking, simple check-in, no long lines and professional TSA baggage inspection services. Departing from here is easy! It’s a short commute, much faster than that long commute to San Francisco or Oakland airports and much easier than that grueling drive down to Orange County or Los Angeles. In addition to carrying the exceptional and reliable service of Boutique Air, our airport also offers facilities for general aviation aircraft, Avis and Enterprise car rental agencies, the Hangar Café, Gateway Air Center for private aircraft, offices for government agencies, great concessionaires, and corporate hangars.

Waiting Area: The waiting area has vending machines, restrooms and is located close to ground transportation for your convenience.

Free Parking! The airport offers an open lot with free parking that can be used for either short or long-term parking. Parking is available in front of the passenger terminal building. There is no charge for airport parking, either short-term or long-term. More about parking here.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up: Departing passengers and their baggage may be dropped off at the terminal entrance, and arriving passengers may be picked up in front of the terminal’s entrance. Drivers must remain with their vehicle and remove them immediately after a passenger is dropped off.

Airport Security: We take security very seriously at the Merced Regional Airport, and we encourage you to do the same. Although the relative size of our airport means that you can save a few extra minutes at your home or office, we still like to see you here approximately one hour before your flight so that our security staff has the necessary time to ensure that your brief stay at the airport and your flight are as safe as possible. For more information regarding security issues contact the Transportation Security Administration:

For Our Visitors: Whether you are visiting Merced for just a night or spending the weekend, for pleasure or for business, Merced is truly a unique city with lots to offer. Learn more at the California Welcome Center Merced.
