Duties of the Airport Commission
Members of the Airport Commission serve in an advisory capacity to the City Council and to the Director of Aviation on issues relating to the Norman Y. Mineta San José International Airport. The Commission investigates, studies and reviews matters relating to the Airport and its development as the City Council and the Director of Aviation may require, or as requested by the general public. The Commission has declared a policy of promoting and protecting air transportation to serve the public interest and to integrate the Airport and its related activities into the orderly growth of the community, and to meet the needs of the traveling public without unduly affecting property and persons located near the Airport.

The City Council is the final decision-making body. The Commission acts as expert advisors to the City Council.

The Commission meets on the second Monday of one calendar month each quarter at 6:00 P.M., at 1701 Airport Blvd, Suite B-1130. On average, Commissioners spend four hours per month preparing for and attending the regular meetings. Additionally, Commissioners attend occasional sub-committee meetings, an annual all-day retreat and optional ceremonial events. View Airport Commission meeting materials and schedules.

Commissioners must live in San José and have an interest or background in Airport issues. There is no compensation for serving on the Airport Commission. Commissioners can be reimbursed for some expenses incurred on City business.

Commissioners are expected to attend all Commission meetings. San José Municipal Code Section 2.08.060 specifies that a Commissioner who has unexcused absences from any two consecutive regular meetings is deemed to have resigned from the Commission.
