Strategically located in Central Texas, San Marcos Regional Airport is the only FAA designated reliever airport for both Austin-Bergstrom and San Antonio International Airports. Merging business, technology, and mobility together, the airport is a core economic driver creating jobs and new investment opportunities in one of Texas’ fastest growing corridors.

As a premier destination airport, San Marcos Regional Airport serves as a hub of economic activity by providing quality business and aviation services, abundant space to grow, and opportunities for development.

The San Marcos Regional Airport is strategically located within the city limits of the City of San Marcos and within Caldwell County.  San Marcos is home to Hays County – the fastest-growing county in the country among counties over 100,000 residents.  San Marcos is also the region called “The Next Great Metropolis” by Forbes.  The nearby city of Lockhart, the county seat of Caldwell County, is located in the Growth Triangle and experiencing explosive growth and is just west of the airport.

The airport encompasses a total of 1,420 acres. Taking runway protection zones (RPZ) and building restriction lines (BRL) into account, there are approximately 433 acres of developable property. Over 200 of those acres are located on prime Highway 21 frontage.

Also pictured on the map below is the proposed layout for FM 110, a limited-access 65 mph road that will directly connect airport visitors to I-35 to the north and McCarty Lane (near the outlet malls) to the south. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2016 and will make accessing the airport faster and easier!

In 2013, a new aircraft ramp and associated taxiway (Taxiway Kilo) were built as part of an FAA grant. This area, called the Kilo Development Area is located near the airport entrance and has all necessary utilities and keypad controlled gate access. These pad sites are available for immediate development.
