History

Established in the 1990s, Meadows Field is actually in Oildale to the north of Bakersfeild and is named after former county airport commissioner and aerial pioneer Cecil Meadows. The primary terminal was moved on February 27, 2006 to the newly constructed William M. Thomas Air Terminal, named after local U.S. Representative and strong airport supporter Bill Thomas who secured Congressional funding for the new terminal. The new terminal upgrades the airports facilities, adding jetways, indoor luggage carousels, wireless internet access, etc. The older terminal, built in the 1950s, has been transformed into an international terminal with a 10,000 square foot U.S. Customs facility built adjacent to it. The older terminal featured a restaurant site and motel, both of which have been remodeled. There are no facilities immediately adjacent to the airport, but a hotel and fast food restaurants exist within a mile to the west of the terminal at 7th Standard Road (which will soon be renamed Merle Haggard Drive between North Chester Avenue and Highway 99) and Highway 65 and a new popular Mexican restaurant is on Airport Drive across from the entrance to the International Terminal at China Grade Loop.
