There are 3 major airports that are a convenient and easy option for travelers; all within a close distance to each other.

San Francisco Airport, SFO: San Francisco is the largest airport and named among the best airport worldwide in the Skytrax Passenger's award 2014 besides ranking. It serves every major US airline and foreign carriers. The airport is located 13 miles south of San Francisco.

Connectivity: Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) has the best connectivity in San Francisco. Cab services like Uber and Lyft are also available for a pickup.

Flight to San Francisco

SFO is particularly suited if you were to be headed to the center of the city where public transport is quite commendable.

Oakland International Airport (OAK)

A viable alternative to SFO, this is also equally well connected to the major tourist destinations; especially worth considering if someone is headed downtown. It is more manageable and not inflicted with the infamous SF fog.

Connectivity: OAK has train connector that connects OAK to full BART system. Travel time including interconnection is 35 minutes. There are ample shuttle services connecting SFO from here.

Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC)

This is smaller out of the other two but has ample services along the west coast and is acclimatized with a favorable weather. This airport is best suited to travelers headed to the Silicon Valley.

Connectivity: Taxi services are expensive. A trip to San Francisco would easily cost $150 and a shared shuttle about an $80. Parking fee alone can be as high as $50. The area has a more suburban background. Local CalTrain that links SJC to Santa Clara is the easiest alternative.

San Francisco International Airport for commercial service and Oakland International Airport is an alternative for San Francisco’s Primary Airport.

OAK Airport

Driving Distance: 13 miles / 21 km

Driving Time: 16 Minutes

Customs and Tipping


There are several ways to calculate the right tip at different places in San Francisco. While grabbing a take away like Starbucks a tip is optional. A lot of locals resort to an easy calculation of multiplying sales tax by two and paying that amount as a tip; else tip at a restaurant is generally 15% of the bill. 

At Gas stations in California where there is hardly any full-service station, it's mostly self-serve so tip is not required. Tip for the porter can be the same as that of a shuttle driver.

It’s common to leave the money underneath the pillow or on the bathroom counter to tip housekeeping. People leave 1-3 dollars depending on if they want to continue staying for the next day and also on any special request. Tip for a bellman is generally $1 a bag.
