Cheap flights from New Orleans to San Francisco

Flights from New Orleans

Louis Armstrong New Orleans Airport

Ten miles from downtown New Orleans sits the Louis Armstrong New Orleans Airport. While this airport suffered some damage during Hurricane Katrina, it recovered and now offers many flights from New Orleans. Air Canada Express, JetBlue Airways, United Airlines and Delta Connection are just a few of the airlines serving locals. If you are the type of person who waits for airlines to run sales, you should check with CheapTickets. CheapTickets has prices as low as those sales, but you can get those prices whenever you want.

Long-Term Parking Garage

The long-term parking garage charges a flat rate of $2 per hour, with a maximum of $13 per 24-hour period. The airport also has a short-term lot with a rate of $16 every 24 hours.

Public Transportation and More

If you want to take a cab to the airport, prepare yourself for the hefty price tag attached to the ride, as a ride from downtown will cost more than $30. Shuttle rides are almost as expensive, charging $20 or more. Bargain hunters might prefer public transportation because of the low-cost rides. The bus charges $2 per passenger for a trip from downtown to the airport.

Fast Eats Made Simple

Caf� Beignet sits inside the West Terminal at the airport, and you can grab a cup of coffee and some beignets. PJ's Coffee is even faster because the restaurant only offers coffee and a few pastries. You can also stop by Lucky Dog, which serves a wide selection of hot dogs and cold drinks. No matter where you want to travel, CheapTickets can help you get there. Flights from New Orleans leave every day, and CheapTickets helps you get on the flight that you need.

Flights to San Francisco

San Francisco Airport Information

Flights to San Francisco land at either San Francisco International Airport or Oakland International Airport. San Francisco Airport is located 13 miles south of San Mateo. Oakland International Airport, meanwhile, is located 4 miles south of Oakland but serves San Francisco. CheapTickets can get you domestic flights from Delta Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and a number of other airlines that serve both airports.

Transportation to San Francisco

San Francisco offers several public transit methods to get from SFO to the city. Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) has a terminal on the Boarding Area G side. SamTrans, a bus system, stops at Terminal 2, Terminal 3, and the International Terminal. A single ride is $2, and a day pass is $6. If you have a rental car arranged, you can collect it in the Rental Car Center. CheapTickets offers discounts on rentals from companies such as Enterprise, Avis, and more.

Weather Expectations

San Francisco, because of its location near the ocean, has a mild climate. Temperatures rarely drop below 45 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter. The average summertime high is 74 degrees. Precipitation is highest in the winter months from January to March, but summers are very dry.

What to Do in San Francisco

Two of the most popular tourist destinations in San Francisco are Alcatraz and Chinatown. Alcatraz, once a highly secure prison, is now a museum colloquially known as The Rock. It lies on an island in San Francisco Bay. Chinatown is the closest you can get to experiencing traditional Chinese culture without flying to China. Schedule your flights to San Francisco during the Chinese New Year-late January to early February-for two weeks of exciting festivities.
