What to know before you fly to San Francisco?
If you’re planning on booking flights to San Francisco, here are a few travel tips to keep in mind. The San Francisco Bay Area is notorious for fog in the summer, but that’s all part of the experience – just make sure you pack a jacket. Autumn, between September and November, offers some of the warmest weather and is a great time to visit.
The currency is the US dollar, the official language is English, and the food is incredibly diverse, with many multicultural influences and the largest Chinatown of any city in the United States.
Airports in San Francisco
San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is the primary commercial airport servicing San Francisco, located 20km south of the downtown area. SFO also services flights to major metropolitan areas across the United States. The easiest way to avoid the Bay Area traffic once you arrive at SFO is to take a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) train from the International Terminal, which will have you in downtown San Francisco in just 30 minutes, with three to four trains departing per hour.
