Airport Overview

San Francisco International Airport is located 21km (13 miles) south of downtown San Francisco and is the largest airport in the Bay Area and the second-busiest airport in California.

Comprising four terminals – Terminals 1, 2, 3 and the International Terminal – that form a ring around a multi-storey Domestic Parking garage, San Francisco International is easy to navigate.
