For tourists visiting San Diego, airports throughout Southern California provide public transportation to lodging accommodations. If you plan on staying in San Diego, the San Diego International Airport is the most convenient. Both international and domestic flights take travelers directly to San Diego from most cities.

Smaller San Diego airports accommodate recreational pilots and passengers who want to take flying tours of the Southern California region. However, most of these airports are used strictly for private jets and planes, not commercial flights. If you wish to utilize these facilities, visit the city of San Diego's web site and follow the link to San Diego airports.

San Diego Airports for Tourists

It takes two or three hours to drive to San Diego from the major Los Angeles airports. Flights from smaller cities sometimes do not go directly to San Diego, so flying to Los Angeles, and then transferring to another plane is sometimes necessary. The transfer flight takes only one hour.

The San Diego International Airport has won service awards for its extensive accommodations for the physically challenged. In addition, ground transportation from the airport can bring visitors directly to their hotels. The airport takes terrorist threats very seriously, so be sure to arrive an hour before your flight leaves to allow for security screening.
