Airlines Serving San Francisco International Airport

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is situated in San Mateo County about thirteen miles from downtown San Francisco. It serviced over forty million passengers in 2011, ranking it second in the state of California behind Los Angeles International (LAX) Airport.

SFO is the fifth largest hub for United Airlines and serves as that airline's maintenance hub as well. It is also the main airport for Virgin America Airlines, which boards daily flights at terminal 2-D to a number of U.S. and Mexican cities.

In total, over forty airlines are based at SFO. These include some of the better-known American airlines including AirTran Airways, American, Delta, JetBlue, Southwest, and US Airways. A number of international airlines, including British Airways, AeroMexico, Air Berlin, Air Canada, Air New Zealand, KLM, and Lufthansa also manage flights in and out of SFO.

SFO is also an important point of transport for those traveling to and from Asia and the Pacific, with Air China, All Nippon Airways, Asiana Airlines, China Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, Japan Airlines, Korean Air, Philippine Airlines and Singapore Airlines based there. In 2010, Hong Kong was the number one busiest international route to and from SFO, just outranking passenger numbers to and from London Heathrow. Tokyo, Seoul, and Taipei all ranked in the top six busiest international routes for SFO that year too.

It's not surprising to note that San Francisco to Los Angeles is the busiest domestic route in terms of number of passengers, but SFO flights to Chicago, New York, Las Vegas, Denver, Seattle, and San Diego, as well as many other prominent U.S. cities, take place every day.

International traffic is such a big part of SFO that there is a separate international terminal in addition to three domestic terminals. Some domestic flights on Alaska Airlines arrive in the international terminal.

As mentioned, United Airlines uses SFO as a hub, and as such, runs numerous daily flights. Most United flights board at terminals 1-B, 3-F, or I-G. United also operates Sky West Airlines for smaller flights within California and the surrounding region to and from locations such as Burbank, Ontario, San Diego, Santa Barbara, Orange County, and Las Vegas.

All United international flights board at I-G, including flights to Beijing, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Mexico City, Paris, Seoul, Sydney, Tokyo, and Vancouver.
