It's a cute little airport. Convenient in and out. Parking per day is $14. Has a Starbucks inside and another just outside security. Has one dining restaurant inside the gate area. Bathrooms at the top level are much roomier than the first level.
Super easy to get to. The just opened up a new parking structure so it's much faster to find parking. They have a Starbucks inside near the check in area and they're open late.
Clean. No USO and the kiosks before security are not open
Not a bad little airport - I think I saw 17 gates. Even on one side, odd on the other. Starbucks before and after security. There's a restaurant and of course a place to buy books/magazines, snacks and souvenirs. Lots of local artists featured. It seemed clean. But I can't vouch for the bathrooms because I didn't use them.
Fresno Yosemite International Airport (FAT) is a charming gem. The gate area is impeccably maintained, and you'll find clean and tidy bathrooms throughout. Kudos to the custodial staff for being attentive to the cleanliness of the space. (I couldn’t get his name so I just took a photo of him).
FAT exudes a relaxed and laid-back atmosphere, making it a delightful choice. If you're open to a short drive to your ultimate destination in the immediate vicinity of central California, this airport stands out as the perfect option.
Vincent Evans at the Fresno, CA Alaska Airline counter is the only reason I will, not only, continue to fly with Alaska Airlines but also continue to do business with Fresno’s Airport. All around fantastic experience. Vincent demonstrated outstanding customer service. He went the extra mile to make a customer feel valued.
Loved the big trees. Airport makes sense and has clean bathrooms. Rental staff were very kind too.

3/29/22 Had another great visit and flight. The bartender Kase was very joyful to chit chat. The airport was very clean. 11/2021 I travel through here quite often as I grew up and my family lives near Yosemite. I enjoy FAT as it's always clean, and usually pretty consistent with getting us through in a timely manner. The food is always delicious, if I have time, I usually stop and get something yummy or to snack on. It's a smaller airport, but one of the things I enjoy about it. The staff has always been friendly, no complaints here. The restrooms are usually not super busy either, so that's a plus as well. I flew on thanksgiving day, and it was pretty calm.
I love our airport, especially with newly expanded parking and the completion of the multi-story parking structure and the addition of Southwest airlines. It's right-sized for our needs and easy to get into and out of.
Parked in the new parking structure. Liked the modern guide to availability of parking spaces. Signage indicated direction to spaces on each level. Alaska Air check in was quick. Security check point was improved and efficient.
One of my favorite airports! The smallest airport I’ve ever been at! Impossible to get lost. Definitely do not arrive here two hours ahead. It is sooooo small! All gates are down one way! You definitely don’t have many options for food… but there’s Starbucks!
Wonderful smaller clean airport. Courteous TSA and Gate agents. Easy in and out. Limited services gate side later in evening.
Nice little airport. Lots of seat to sit on while waiting for the plane. Easy to come to with car.
Super convenient, smaller airport. Great for getting through security and to your gate in record time.
Not very crowded and people are social distancing and wearing masks.
Small convenient airport. Wish there were a trolly to and from Economy parking. If you are waiting for a flight departure be sure to eat prior to arrival. Food at the bar area was ridiculous for what you get. I ordered a Caesar Salad. $22, no drink. It looked like they got from 7-11, if they carried a Caesar salad. 4 stars for staff at that airport. Cleanliness, and efficient with screening process. I was to my gate in 20 minutes after arrival. That included checking a bag at ticket counter.
It was a sunny day when I visited Fresno Yosemite International, which is a joint civil-military airport in Fresno, California, United States.
Had a great cup of coffee while lounging at the beautiful waiting area before boarding.
This is the primary commercial airport for the San Joaquin Valley and three national parks: Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon.
It offers scheduled passenger flights to several major airline hubs in the United States and international service to Mexico.
The facility opened in June 1942 as Hammer Field, a military airfield.
The airport is owned and operated by the city of Fresno and has two runways on a property spanning 1,728 acres.
Its airport code 'FAT' stands for "Fresno Air Terminal," a former name for the airport.
Facilities are awesome. Car park is great. Airport staff is courteous and forthcoming.
Wonderful airport. The crew from American Airlines were great and very friendly. The TSA agents were fast, efficient and friendly. Starbucks in the airport was very good and fresh. Loved flying in and out of this airport. Looking forward to more trips in the future.
Must see at least once in a lifetime. My order of liking:
1. Sentinel dome
2. Glacier point
3. Tunnel view
4. Giant sequoia tree
Wanted to see Sequoia National Park but couldn't see as it is closed currently because of fires...
I’ve lived in Santa Barbara, San Francisco/Oakland, Los Angeles,/Burbank/Long Beach, and I’ve traveled pretty much everywhere. And I’ll say BY FAR! By a mile Fresno airport is the easiest smallest convenient airport next to Bob hope(Burbank) airport I’ve ever been in or to. Good friendly staff. It’s got it’s pain in the back side spots too such as parking. But overall it’s quick convenient clean and pretty close to everything in this city.
It's fun to be greeted by this large Redwood forest inside the airport as you make your way from the gates to baggage claim. I've flown here about 5 times, and I've never yet had a long wait checking bags or getting through security. If you use a rideshare (Uber or Lyft), the pickup area is now way down away from baggage claim and the pick up zone for taxis and hotel shuttles. This wasn't clear to me at first, but when you walk to the correct spot, there is a sign (turn left out of baggage claim).
If you're not worried about food options and just need to get to your flight in record time, this is a great airport. For the number of travelers coming and going, this airport has always had ample parking, and going through security is a breeze compared to other higher-traffic airports. If you have no bags to check, you can use the self-check-in kiosks, or airline phone apps to get your boarding pass and head straight to security. As with all airports, this one does experience higher traffic and wait times during the holidays.
Visited the valley will out for a work trip. Within a 3 hour hike I got to see several incredible views of the park. The upper falls hike is hard but we'll worth it. Lower falls are packed but a must go. Especially if you are willing to get out on the rocks below the falls to feel the pier of the waterfall.
Nice small airport, less walking distance, friendly staff, clean
