Airports in California

California has many international and domestic airports. San Francisco International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport are the two major international airports in California. There are also a number of other commercial and general aviation airports, as well as military airports in the state.

California is home to twenty-seven primary commercial airports, meaning they offer commercial flights and have greater than 10,000 passenger boardings annually. The main airports in California are Los Angeles International (LAX), which is one of the busiest airports in the world, along with San Francisco International (SFO) and San Diego International (SAN).

The listed primary commercial airports have been placed into one of three categories: International, Domestic, or Regional. International airports are those that are capable of handling customs and immigration and have flights to and from other countries. International airports also handle domestic flights, and are typically larger and have more traffic. Domestic airports schedule flights within the country. Regional airports are a type of domestic airport that schedules flights within a limited geographic area. Regional airports are typically smaller in size and handle a lower number of flights annually than other domestic airports or international airports.

Airports in California are also grouped in accordance to their type and location. These airports include all-public-use as well as military airways. Well, the city served airports are the ones which are generally associated with the city that they are located at, in accordance to the master record maintained by the Federal Aviation Administration. Each airport in California has an 'IATA', which is the code that is being assigned by the IATA (International Air Transport Association) and is different from the FAA code that is displayed in bold. Some of the city served airports in California include Arcata, Bakersfield, Carlsbad, Chico, Crescent City, Fresno, Modesto, Oakland, Ontario, Palm Springs, Santa Maria and many more.

The two prime international airports in California include Los Angeles International Airport and San Francisco International Airport. The latter has four terminals and caters to an increasing number of passengers passing through San Francisco. Reputed airlines including Air Canada, Delta Airlines, US Airways, Continental Airlines and Alaska Airlines operate their flights on the San Francisco International Airport. On the contrary, the Los Angeles International Airport, also known as LAX, is considered as one of the busiest airports of California. Utmost satisfaction has always remained the foremost priority of this airport.
