Jet Charter Flights to San Antonio
San Antonio is the second-largest city in the state of Texas and the seventh largest city in the United States.
Home of the Alamo and the gateway to southern Texas. San Antonio exhibits true Tex-Mex style. With Mexican-Americans making up more than half its population, the city’s heritage seeps into almost everything—the pueblo architecture, the mariachi music, and even the tamales. As for tourist pleasures, the downtown is small enough to stroll, the River Walk is an ideal stop for a waterside margarita, and local bars keep the energy pumping with live Tejano and country music.
San Antonio has a diversified economy with four primary focuses: financial services, health care, national defense, and tourism. Located northwest of the city center is the South Texas Medical Center, the largest medical research and care provider in South Texas, which is a conglomerate of numerous major hospitals, clinics, and research and higher educational institutions. The center is “chief catalyst” for a $14 billion biomedical industry.
The city is also home to one of the largest military concentrations in the United States.
Fort Sam Houston on the city’s northeast side hosts Brooke Army Medical Center, focus of the U.S. Army’s medical command and training functions.
Lackland Air Force Base on the city’s west side is one of the world’s largest training complexes.
Randolph Air Force Base on the far northeastern outskirts is the headquarters of the Air Education and Training Command, headquarters for Air Force personnel management and also hosts pilot and navigator training.
Additionally, Brooks City-Base on the city’s south side and Port San Antonio (formerly Kelly Air Force Base) adjoining Lackland still have significant military presences as well as defense contractor businesses. The defense industry in San Antonio employs over 89,000 and provides a $5.25 billion impact to the city’s economy.
