Find the cheapest month to travel from San Francisco International to Los Angeles International

For many years, Fog City has been dubbed Northern California’s commercial and cultural hub. San Francisco is the second-most densely populated metropolis in America, with only New York City having more people per square mile. Los Angeles is located 347 miles to the southeast of San Fran, and standard flight times are approximately one hour, though common arrival and departure delays often extend total trip length an extra 20 minutes.

The destination city is based farther from the Pacific, so it does not receive the cool ocean air like residents of The Paris of the West. The air is fresher in California’s upper city, which is one thing visitors from the north should keep in mind.

Direct, non-stop flights from San Francisco to Los Angeles can be reserved with Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Continental Airlines, Delta Airlines, US Airways, and United Airlines. This trip is made on a very frequent basis, 400 times each week to be exact! 

Flying out of San Francisco

San Francisco International is based 13 miles south of the city center, and is close to the towns of San Bruno and Milbrae. It is the busiest airport in California after LAX, and a major flight hub for United Airlines. Virgin America also uses it as its central flight base operations. The facility is comprised of four terminals and seven distinct concourses, which are conveniently and efficiently arranged in a counterclockwise, alphabetical pattern.

The airport has multiple outdoor, fenced-in relief areas for passengers traveling with pets, which include water bowls and mutt mitt dispensers. They can be easily located by looking for the painted, curbside paw prints. Various on-site activities are available for families, such as the AirTrain, InMotion Entertainment, and the Aviation Museum & Library. There are many restaurants to choose from in SFO, too!
