San Francisco International Airport

San Francisco International Airport is known as the “gateway to the Pacific,” serving tens of millions of domestic and international passengers annually (33.5 million as of 2006), flown in by more than 40 airlines leaving and arriving every day. It is one of the world's 30 busiest airports (14th busiest in the US and 26th in the world as of 2006), and home to the largest international terminal in North America. It is built on a landfill that extends into the San Francisco Bay. Geographically, it is 13 miles (21 km) south of the city, bounded by Millbrae and San Bruno. Its distance from the city of San Francisco places it within the boundaries of San Mateo County, although jurisdiction is maintained by the former.

The airport is connected to downtown center by the Bay Area Rapid Transit System, locally known as BART. Before reaching the city of San Francisco, BART trains make their way through San Bruno, South San Francisco, Colma, and Daly City. Once in downtown, passengers can take the city bus, known as the SF MUNI, to anywhere within city limits. A free airport shuttle is available to the BART station for passengers who want to take public transport.

Passengers opting to take private transport enjoy convenient KSFO parking according to their needs and budget. Domestic parking garages are a 5-minute walk to and from the terminals, whereas International Garages (A and G) are 5 minutes farther. For the frequent flyer, long-term parking is available, complete with quick shuttle rides to and from the terminals.

It being an international hub of flights going in all directions, private jet charter in San Francisco can be arranged through jet rental agencies. There is a fleet of San Francisco private jets to choose from, depending on the size of the flying party. A private jet in KSFO ranges in size from turboprops and light jets (seating 5 – 9), midsize jets (seating 6-9), super midjet (seating 8-10), and heavy jets (seating 9-15).

The entry-level in the jet charter industry, light jets are the most efficient choice of transport for short trips, and economical options for mid-range flights, too. Light jets can navigate in airports that are not accessed by major airlines, so they are a faster way to go from one major city to a less-crowded urban center serviced only be domestic flights. Average non-stop range of light jets is about 1,500 miles.

Pressurized passenger cabins and enclosed lavatory are standard for light jets, but baggage capacity is somewhat limited. Skis or large golf bags cannot be taken on board.

For a party of 7-9, the most versatile private jet would be a midsize jet. It is large enough to provide passenger comfort, but agile enough to navigate smaller airports. Midsize jets can travel up to 2,100 miles without refueling.

For longer-range flights, super midjets are a way to go. Jets of this size and range were designed for the executive traveler, allowing up to nine members of the board to go with the CEO. Super midjets are definitely roomier, and bigger fuel capacity means a range of 3,500 miles non-stop.

A jet charter in San Francisco means access to heavy jets which are the best-in-class in terms of cabin space, cruising speed, and optimum performance. A jet of this size can comfortably fly 9 to 15 passengers without needing a major airport runway. Heavy jets can travel up to 4,000 miles without refueling.

With the airport sitting at one of America's nerve centers, flying to and from domestic and international destinations – via private jets or full-fledged airbuses – is a breeze.
