Business Aviation Travel Tips for San Antonio, TexasMarch 24, 2015 by Stacey Farooqui
San Antonio, Texas is hosting the National Business Aviation Association’s International Operators Conference (IOC) this year. Whether you are visiting the city to attend the event, or for a business aviation mission, here is an overview of what you can expect to experience during your visit.
San Antonio experiences a mild climate from November through April, so a visit during March should be greeted with highs around 74 F (23 C). Due to the agreeable weather, San Antonio is a popular convention destination during these months, so be sure to book your room well in advance.
Business aviation traffic in San Antonio is supported by San Antonio International Airport (SAT / KSAT), Stinson Municipal Airport (SSF / KSSF) and San Marcos Municipal Airport (HYI / KHYI). If you are traveling to San Antonio on a business aviation mission, in-flight catering is available at all three airports.
San Antonio’s weather also means there are plenty of outdoor activities to consider during your visit. Personally, I love caverns so my top pick would be to explore the underground in the Natural Bridge Caverns. Close by you will find Bracken Cave, home to the world’s largest bat colony. If you prefer staying above ground, there are many parks and landmarks to check off your list. The Alamo and San Antonio Missions are the perfect settings for learning about local history.
The River Walk is a popular place to walk around, check out restaurants and shopping, and many other attractions. Dining options line the river, or you can catch a river boat and float on the Rio San Antonio while enjoying dinner. Some popular restaurants include Bliss, Bella on the River, Biga on the Banks and Las Canarias.
Overall, you will find that the San Antonio’s calendar is full of events all year long, so there are unique opportunities to have fun no matter when you are in town.
