Los Angeles International Airport[edit]

Los Angeles International Airport commonly referred to by its airport code, LAX (with each of its letters pronounced individually), is the primary international airport serving the Greater Los Angeles Area and the world's third busiest airport.[1] Located in the Westchester neighborhood of Los Angeles, it is 18 miles (30 km) southwest of Downtown Los Angeles and close to the Pacific Ocean.

LAX is a major international gateway to the United States, and also serves a connection point for passengers traveling internationally. LAX is the world's busiest origin and destination airport, since relative to other airports, many more travelers begin or end their trips in Los Angeles than use it as a connection. LAX serves as a major hub or focus city for seven airlines, more than any other airport in the United States. In 2019, LAX handled over 88 million passengers and 2 million tons of cargo.[1]

The FlyAway express bus system connects LAX with Los Angeles Union Station, the region's primary rail transportation hub.

John Wayne Airport[edit]

John Wayne Airport (SNA) is an international airport and the second-busiest airport in the region. Located in Orange County, the second-most populous county in the area and the most densely populated, the airport serves as a gateway to many of the region's popular tourist attractions, including the Disneyland Resort. It served 10.7 million passengers in 2019.

Hollywood Burbank Airport[edit]

Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR), the smallest of the primary airports in the area, handles domestic air service and flights to Canada. The airport is located in Burbank, and is the closest to Downtown Los Angeles and the heavily populated areas of northern Los Angeles County, including Hollywood, Pasadena, the San Fernando Valley, the Santa Clarita Valley, and the western San Gabriel Valley. In addition to it's small physical size, the airport only has 14 gates and for the purposes of noise abatement, only schedules commercial flights between 7:00 am and 10:00 pm. Despite these limitations, Burbank is the region's third-busiest airport, handling 6 million passengers in 2019.

Hollywood Burbank Airport is the only airport in the area with a direct rail connection to Downtown Los Angeles from two stations, Burbank Airport–North and Burbank Airport–South.

Ontario International Airport[edit]

Ontario International Airport (ONT) is located in the San Bernardino County city of Ontario, east of Los Angeles, and is a more convenient option for residents in the Inland Empire and the eastern San Gabriel Valley. It served 5.6 million passengers in 2019.

The airport is the West Coast cargo hub for UPS Airlines, with 924,160 tons of cargo landed at the airport in 2020.

Long Beach Airport[edit]

Long Beach Airport (LGB) is the least busy of the airports in the area. The airport is located in Long Beach, south of Los Angeles. It served 3.6 million passengers in 2019.

San Bernardino International Airport[edit]

San Bernardino International Airport (SBD) is in the city of San Bernardino and is the former Norton Air Force Base. While a passenger terminal was built as part of the conversion to a civilian airport, no scheduled passenger service has ever operated there. It primarily serves as a cargo airport for UPS Airlines with 235,500 tons of cargo landed at the airport in 2020.
