Flights to Los Angeles
What to know before you fly to Los Angeles?
When’s the best time to fly to Los Angeles? LA is literally a hotspot of activity in summer, with concerts, outdoor cinema, music festivals and loads of other outdoor entertainment to enjoy. This is a good time to fly to LA, but take note: it can be hot. From March to May is a perfect time to visit, when rainfall is minimal and temperatures are mild. September to November is another ideal time to fly to Los Angeles, when the heat of summer has passed but the rainier winter has not yet begun.
Don’t forget to pack your electricity adapter because US sockets are different to those here in Australia, and remember to tip workers in service roles like drivers and hospitality staff.
Airports in Los Angeles
Most likely the airport that you’ll be flying into in LA is Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The majority of flights from Australia will descend into Tom Bradley International Terminal, even though there are nine terminals at LAX. The airport is situated around 30km to the southwest of Downtown LA and a typical taxi fare to Downtown LA will cost around A$70.
