Airports in and Around San Jose, CA

  • San Jose International (SJC/KSJC) – The largest airport in San Jose, SJC flies millions of passengers both in and out of the city, and is a sizeable hub for both executive travel and personal travel. SJC is a great alternative to the more expensive and more hectic San Francisco Intl Airport (SFO) as well, so choosing San Jose International over SFO is preferred by many private travelers.
  • San Carlos Airport (SQL/KSQL) – Located only two miles from the city center, San Carlos Airport is considered an alternative to the busier airport in San Francisco and San Jose, and handles 98% general aviation, making it a popular location for a private jet charter, and a small airport for those that want to miss the SF crowd.
