SAN Airport - San Diego Airport ( San Diego , CA )


San Diego Airport Overview

San Diego International Airport SAN - also known as 'Lindbergh Field' - serves the City of San Diego in southern California and surrounding areas.  It is the Nation’s busiest single runway airport, however, its reduced runway capacity also limits the number of international flights the Airport can accommodate. Conde Nast Traveler magazine has ranked San Diego Airport as the fifth in the Nation's top airports, and number 1 in the State.

SAN Airport is only a few miles to the center of San Diego, California, and is only 20 miles from the Mexican border. It is conveniently situated on North Harbor Drive, off Interstate Hwy I-5, offering connections to S.R. 163, I-8 and I-15. The area is known for its mild climate, plentiful beaches and world-class attractions like the San Diego Zoo and SeaWorld.
