Airport Information

The San Diego International Airport (SAN) is about 3.5 miles from the downtown hotels and the convention center.  With nearly 500 daily domestic and international flights from more than 60 nonstop destinations, all the major airlines can connect you to the city. Visit the San Diego Airport page for airlines and nonstop service routes.

If traveling by train, the Santa Fe Depot, located one mile from the convention center, is the main hub for Amtrak. Admire the Pacific views as you curl along the Southern California coast by train from downtown San Diego to Oceanside, Anaheim, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and many places in between. For Amtrak schedules and information, visit Amtrak's page.

Getting from the Airport

Taxicabs and ride-share companies are typically plentiful at the airport. From baggage claim, follow signs leading to Transportation Plazas where an airport transportation coordinator will assist you. Fares to downtown can range from $15-25 for an estimated 15 minute ride. Most cab companies accept credit cards and do not charge extra for up to 3 additional passengers.

Several airport shuttle companies operate from the airport’s Transportation Plazas across from Terminals 1 and 2 with an airport transportation coordinator available to assist you.  Rates vary. The public city bus, Route 992, is also an option. 

Visit the "To and From" section  to customize your travel plans.
