Cheap flights from New York to San Diego

Flying into San Diego International Airport (SAN), from John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK), gives travelers the perfect view of glistening San Diego Bay, Point Loma and the downtown waterfront.

Settle into the relaxed Southern California setting as soon as you've landed, and consider picking up a rental car at the airport. Start your vacation by heading down I-5, which turns in to Sunset Cliffs in Ocean Beach, to watch the waves crash on the cliffs, or take in a sunset over the Pacific; ideal for shaking off your jet lag. Then, check out San Diego's other attractions like Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo and Old Town.

Key Facts

Interstate 5 runs beside the airport, leading visitors south to the downtown waterfront, USS Midway Museum, Padres games at Petco Park, Coronado Island. You’ll also find Comic-Con's home at the San Diego Convention Center.

Take I-5 north to discover chic La Jolla and the laid-back Pacific Beach, and connect to the city's main east-west freeway, Interstate 8. From I-8, Mission Bay and SeaWorld both offer hours of entertainment, while travelers heading inland are led to Mission Valley, Hotel Circle and the Chargers' QualComm Stadium.

Hints and Tips

The flight from JFK, to San Diego International Airport (SAN) takes nearly six hours, so you'll be ready for San Diego's sunny ambiance when you land.
