SANTA ROSA, Calif., Dec. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Charles M. Schulz – Sonoma County Airport (STS) has expanded flight schedules and destinations so more travelers now experience the ease of using a small airport inside Sonoma Wine Country. Arriving and departing from Charles M. Schulz - Sonoma County Airport is far less stressful and time-consuming than enduring traffic and crowds at other Bay Area airports. There's even a statue of beloved beagle aviator, Snoopy, to set a welcoming tone.
Starting with the Christmas travel season, Charles M. Schulz - Sonoma County Airport will embark on a passenger service promotion known as "STS Cares". At the center of the promotion is a new health and travel iPhone app, Exigency.
Travelers who follow directions to download the free app will have at their fingertips the location of the nearest health care providers, clinics to emergency rooms, and local pharmacy hours of operation, wherever they travel in the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. The Exigency app also stores personal health insurance, physician and health provider information for quick access in an emergency.
"Holiday travel is especially important and comes at a time when there can be obstacles of weather and seasonal cold and flu concerns," says Charles M. Schulz - Sonoma County Airport Manager Jon Stout. "We see Exigency as a way to assist passengers with resources to help them stay healthier while traveling."
Exigency was developed by Sonoma County-based PreXa Media. The app saves time getting help when emergencies occur, but many Exigency users find it useful to locate over-the-counter medications or to arrange prescription refills whether they travel by air or land.
"Exigency is a practical app year-round and helpful whether you travel for business or pleasure," says PreXa Media President Samuel Precup, who expects the Smartphone version to be available in early 2016. "Charles M. Schulz - Sonoma County Airport recognizes the ongoing benefits and will continue to promote this 'gift that keeps on giving' as upgrades and updates become in the months ahead. We are pleased to have Charles M. Schulz - Sonoma County Airport as the first of what we hope will be many promotional partners in the months ahead."
