Marc Wheeler Posted June 10, 2018 Share Posted June 10, 2018 http://events.canadianxpress.ca/images/CXA_June_2018_FlyIn.jpg San Diego International Airport, formerly known as Lindbergh Field, is an international airport 3 mi northwest of Downtown San Diego, California, United States. In 2015, traffic at San Diego International exceeded 20 million passengers, serving more than 500 scheduled operations carrying about 50,000 passengers each day. While primarily serving domestic traffic, San Diego has nonstop international flights to Canada, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. San Diego is the largest metropolitan area in the United States that is not an airline hub or secondary hub. However, San Diego is a focus city for Alaska and Southwest Airlines. San Diego International is the busiest single runway airport in the United States and third-busiest single runway in the world, behind Mumbai and London Gatwick. Due to the airports short usable-runway, close proximity to the skyscrapers of Downtown San Diego and steep landing approach as a result of the nearby Peninsular Ranges, KSAN has been called "the busiest, most difficult single runway in the world" and operates in controlled airspace served by the Southern California TRACON, which is some of the busiest airspace in the world.
