The Los Angeles International Airport, best known as LAX, is the primary airport serving Southern California's greater Los Angeles area. Use CheapTickets to find bargain flights to Los Angeles, and you'll be able to choose from any of the 61 domestic and international air passenger carriers that fly to hundreds of destinations around the world. The airport is located less than 20 miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles, with easy access via I-405. If you prefer a smaller airport with the same amenities, you can also choose to land at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, located roughly 40 miles southeast of the city.
You'll find plenty of transportation options available when you step outside the baggage claim area, including share-a-ride shuttles and private taxis. Using CheapTickets, you can easily find a hotel that offers free shuttle service to and from the airport. If you plan to venture outside the downtown area, you might want to consider renting a car. Most of the major car rental companies are available at the airport, although you should make an advance reservation.
Los Angeles is generally warm and dry, with average winter temperatures ranging from the high 40s to the high 60s and summer temperatures ranging from the mid-60s to the mid-80s. December, January, February and March usually see the most precipitation, but the amount is still less than many other regions of the country.
Los Angeles is known for its bevy of celebrities and proximity to Hollywood and all the major movie and television production studios. While you are in the area, plan to spend at least one day shopping on Rodeo Drive, driving through Beverly Hills or visiting some of the more notorious spots, such as the Brown Derby, Chateau Marmont or the Pig and Whistle. Enjoy your stay, and remember to use CheapTickets the next time you need to find bargain fares on flights to Los Angeles.
