How long is the flight to California?

Flights from London (All airports) to Los Angeles – 11 hours 20 minutes Flights from Manchester to San Francisco – 13 hours 20 minutes Flights from Birmingham to Los Angeles – 13 hours 00 minutes Flights from Glasgow to San Francisco – 12 hours 10 minutes

Which airlines operate flights to California?

Depending where you want to go, your flights to California will probably be operated by British Airways, Air Canada, KLM or Iberia. The cost of flights to California are relatively similar regardless of who you fly with, so it’s better to compare each airline and see what benefits they offer. British Airways for example offer complimentary snacks and drinks for the duration of the flight.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Los Angeles International: Downtown LA is located around 30km from LAX airport. The easiest and cheapest option is to get a free shuttle bus from the airport. Outside of arrivals you should take either shuttle G or C. C takes you to the Metro bus centre and from there you can either continue on your way to downtown LA or if you’re staying in Hollywood or Santa Monica, you can find means of transport from here. You can also jump in a taxi if you want convenient and fast travel from the airport, however the price won’t be cheap and it is expected that you tip your driver. This is a good option if there are a few of you to split the fare. San Francisco International: The easiest and most convenient way to travel from the airport to the city is from the BART station. It’s located in the International Terminal, and you can take a free AirTrain from all terminals to the BART station. You will need to buy a ticket from the BAET station before you travel, or you can book in advance and exchange your voucher for the correct ticket, which is kind of like a debit card which you keep for your time in San Francisco. Another option is to get a taxi from outside of the airport, although this can be costly if you’re travelling alone. You can also take a shuttle or shared van from the airport, simply tell the driver where you want to go and he’ll add you to his route and tell you the price.
