San Francisco Flights

When you’re looking to fly into the City by the Bay, you have the choice of three airports in the area: San Francisco International Airport (SFO), Oakland International Airport (OAK), and Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC). SFO is located 13 miles south of downtown, OAK sits 21 miles southeast of the city across the bay, while SJC is 45 miles southeast of San Francisco. SFO and OAK airports are often the most popular choices because of their close proximity to the San Francisco, California, attractions.

If you’ve booked flights to San Francisco through SFO, you’ll find a number of on-site amenities at the terminals. Fuel your hunger at one of the many cafes, fast food places, and restaurants, and then get your retail fix at the various designer boutiques, book stores, and souvenir shops. The SFO terminals even feature Kids’ Spots, where your little ones can burn off some energy before their next flight. For additional information about San Francisco Int. Airport, check out Flights.com.

Similar to SFO, OAK and SJC offer a number of food and beverage options, including on-the-go stations and sit-down restaurants. These airport terminals also include newsstands and souvenir shops for in-flight entertainment and last-minute gifts.

Once you’ve chosen an airport and booked your plane tickets to San Francisco, it’s easy to arrive at your final destination. In terms of public transportation, SamTrans services SFO, and OAK is a stop on the AC Transit and the Amtrak lines.

Alternatively, you can always reserve San Francisco car rentals through us in advance, or arrange taxi, shared van, or shuttle rides at any of the airports.

San Francisco Activities

If a jaunt to Fog City is on the horizon, start building your itinerary with the best things to do in San Francisco. Take a stroll across the epic Golden Gate Bridge, eat clam chowder at Fisherman’s Wharf, and witness the towering trees at the Muir Woods National Monument. Immerse yourself in culture at the Asian Art Museum, and spend an afternoon touring the Presidio. Between exploring the history of Alcatraz Island and attending a concert at Davies Symphony Hall, you’ll be talking about your San Fran sojourn for years to come.

Planning Your Trip

If you’re still deciding on when to reserve airfare to San Francisco, CA, take the seasons into account. Autumn, between September and November, is arguably the nicest time to visit because the weather is in the low 70s F, and there are fewer crowds and cheaper hotels in San Francisco. Winter is also affordable and less crowded, but the temperature does drop down to the 50s F, and with the cooler weather comes blustery winds. Meanwhile, spring and summer see warmer temperatures, which do attract the tourists.

The WiFI was terrible!

Small jet, but a very friendly staff and pilot with the smoothest flight I have ever had! The pilot had a great send of humor which you seldom hear anymore over the intercom, it was soothing and made it wonderful for people like me who are nervous flyers. Staff friendly and helpful. I don't usually care for Delta but I must admit, they have the best staff of all the airlines by far!

I don't like getting nickeled and dimed to death with charges for my seat assignments and checked bags. Charge me once and be done with it. I should be able to pick my seats at booking time when booking on Expedia or Kayak and not have to pay extra when I'm choosing my seats when checking in on line. Other than that I was pretty pleased with all four flights. Thanks. Paul Koojoolian
