San Diego airports
The majority of San Diego flights land at San Diego Intl. Airport (SAN), which is commonly known as Lindbergh Field. The name "Lindbergh Field" came about due to the fact that the Spirit of St. Louis was designed, built and tested in San Diego. Originally, SAN was called San Diego Municipal Airport - Lindbergh Field; later on, its name was changed, but the Lindbergh part stuck. SAN is a remarkable airport; it's the busiest single-runway airport in the United States and the second busiest single-runway airport in the world. Airlines that have a major presence in SAN include Southwest Airlines and Alaska Airlines, and SAN is home to 20 passenger airlines that fly nonstop to 49 destinations. Other nearby commercial airports include Montgomery Field, Brown Field, Tijuana International Airport and McClellan-Palomar Airport.

When to book flights to San Diego
SD is a lovely place to visit throughout the entire year. If you're interested in attending one of San Diego's many festivals such as Mardi Gras in the Gaslamp Quarter, Comic-Con, the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon, Fleet Week or San Diego Thanksgiving Dixieland Jazz Festival, then book your tickets to San Diego way ahead of time; if you wait until the last minute, all the tickets may be gone. If you're more interested in having a quiet and peaceful vacation, then consider getting San Diego airfare during the low season months of November through January. The most pleasant weather can be found during the fall, and although the spring is quite lovely, it's too cold to go swimming in the ocean.
