Three major airports serve the San Francisco Bay Area

Choosing airports

Although San Francisco is the largest of the three area airports and offers the most airlines and flights, some visitors find that San Jose’s smaller size makes it a somewhat more convenient alternative, especially for domestic flights. We suggest comparing fares to all three airports, as there can be significant differences, even for the same airline.
