Getting Around the San Francisco International Airport

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on October 10, 2014

San Francisco International Airport is a 10 mile drive from downtown, located near San Bruno and Millbrae. It is one of the busiest airports in America, and offers several international flights to Europe and Asia. Its abbreviation is SFO, and it has four runways, the longest being almost 12,000 feet. There are four terminals, 1, 2, 3, and International, along with a total of seven concourses that are in a large circle and range from A-G.

There are several restaurants and other amenities located in the airport, making flight delays and layovers slightly easier to endure than in other large airports. Restaurants at SFO vary in genre and price, with even the pickiest foodies able to find something to please their palate. There are several Andale Mexican restaurants and Klein’s Deli’s in the terminals, as well as Fung Lum, Lark Creek Grill, Lori’s Diner, various coffee shops, and many more options.

Travelers can also find several Wi-Fi spots and work terminals to stay on top of important tasks. Those who want a bit of downtime, can enjoy yoga in terminal D, the Aviation Museum and Library, or the Berman Reflection room. There are also many art exhibits and several “kid spots” to let children burn off some energy between flights.
