With its business amenities, close proximity to San Francisco, and modern style, it's no wonder that San Francisco International Airport is one of the top 10 airports for charter flights nationwide. San Francisco International Airport is located 18 miles south of Downtown San Francisco, in unincorporated San Mateo County on the edge of the San Francisco Bay. This airport is the most convenient for charter flight travelers doing business in the San Francisco Bay Area, as the airport is directly connected to U.S. Route 101, Interstate 380, and the BART system.
San Francisco International Airport was first opened on 150 acres of cow pasture leased from prominent local landowner Ogden L. Mills, (who in turn had leased it from his grandfather Darius O. Mills) and was named Mills Field Municipal Airport. From the 1930s on, the airport now known as San Francisco International has been the airport of choice for the jet set in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since the opening of the central terminal in 1954, the airfield has grown to become a major airport for both commercial aviation and for private jet charter flights.
Culturally, the airport is much more than one would expect. Jazz performances, a library, the San Francisco Airport Museums (accredited by the American Association of Museums in 1999) and beautiful and creative architecture make SFO a gateway of choice for over 30 million passengers every year.
