Traveling from San Francisco (SFO).

Southwest Airlines is proud to serve San Francisco International Airport.

It’s easy to bid Golden Gate City goodbye by boarding a flight at San Francisco International Airport. Just hop on the BART and make your way to your terminal. Of course, if you own a car you can park and fly, and hired cars are always an option.

Life in the City by the Bay has a unique cadence, and it’s certainly alluring, but feeling the vibes of other metropolitan areas is important. Trade the Golden Gate Bridge for one of the bridges in Chicago, which happens to boast the most inner-city bridges of any U.S. city (who knew?). Ditch the Pacific Ocean for the Atlantic with an East Coast excursion—New England or states that consider themselves the South, your choice. True southern comfort awaits in a number of destinations to which Southwest flies, but if you elect to stay on the West Coast, that’s cool. Oregon and Washington state deserve love, too.

Shake up your day-to-day. Trade in the ghost of the Summer of Love for a present-tense adventure with a flight on Southwest Airlines. Whether you choose a mountain-range getaway, a desert retreat, or to disappear into another world-class metropolitan city’s hustle and bustle, Southwest can take you there from San Francisco International Airport. See the myriad destination options available to you via Southwest and check out exciting trip add-ons from Southwest Airlines® Experiences—and rack up those Rapid Rewards® points when you fly. Know your booking process will be straightforward from flight selection to checkout to boarding. Learn more about what makes the Southwest® Experience different.
