Popular Private Jet Charters to and from San Francisco


As more tech business lands in San Francisco, so do the private jets. This beautiful coastal city is home to some of the most powerful companies in technology but remains quirky at heart, with diverse restaurants, cool bars and leafy parks.

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is located just 15 miles from the city, so the trip can be quick when traffic is light. However, travelers arriving on charter flights during rush hour may prefer to fly into Metropolitan Oakland International Airport. Located just 19 miles from the Financial District, the airport is slightly farther from the city, but sees far fewer crowds than SFO, and its well-appointed conference facilities are popular with business travelers.

We’ve put together a list of popular charter flights to and from San Francisco to inspire your next journey.

Your usual flight from San Francisco to Los Angeles just got a lot breezier. Instead of landing at busy LAX, book a private jet charter to any of the city’s many private jet airports. Van Nuys Airport, just 20 miles from downtown LA, is the most popular choice for private jet travelers. However, depending on your destination, it may be more convenient to fly into Santa Monica Municipal Airport in Santa Monica, or John Wayne Airport in Orange County. A private jet charter from San Francisco to Van Nuys Airport could cost just $6,000 in a King Air 90, which seats six. For an even more luxurious option, charter a Bombardier Challenger 650 for approximately $17,300.
