The airport is owned by the City of Merced. It is mostly used for general aviation, but is also used by one commercial airline. Service is subsidized by the Essential Air Service program.
On May 15, 2011, Great Lakes Airlines commenced service to Los Angeles International Airport in Los Angeles, California, with a stop over in Visalia, California. In addition to the Los Angeles service, the airline also offers two daily non-stop, round trip flights between Merced and Las Vegas.
Previously, Great Lakes Airlines provided service to LA/Ontario International Airport in Ontario, California. Due to the success of flights to Las Vegas offered under prior carriers, service between Merced and Ontario was discontinued in favor of the more popular Las Vegas route.
