Otherwise known as Lindberg Field, the San Diego International Airport (SAN)is only three miles from the city of San Diego, California.

Despite heightened amounts of airport traffic, the San Diego Airport has two terminals and around 50 gates. The singular runway makes for a compact design, and the two main terminals are adjacent to each other, with a smaller commuter terminal located a short distance away. All terminals have parking located in close proximity. A new terminal is slated to continue construction into 2023, to act on years-long talks of renovation.

The city’s infrastructure allows for several modes of transportation to and from the San Diego Airport. Amtrak trains are a well-known choice, and COASTER trains help visitors travel all over the city and north into other California areas. The city bus and shuttles have pickup locations at both locations, and all methods of transport have respective stations for each other, including the Old Town Trolley, which can be accessed by these public people movers and send visitors to the historic parts of the city and the Mexican border.

Flights from SAN to LAX last about one hour. Major domestic carriers fly in and out of the San Diego airport daily, one of the main ones being budget airline Allegiant, as well as Frontier and Spirit.
