5 Things We Love About San Francisco International Airport (SFO)

Today Airport Search kicks off a brand new feature of short airport profiles celebrating some of the offerings, services and functions we like approximately airports around the sector.  

We should pass on and on (as we frequently do) approximately some our favorites, of route.

But to keep things shifting along, we're preserving the listing for this collection to just 5 things we like about every airport.

Our goal is to add at the least one “Five matters we love approximately…” characteristic each week. But, surely, we’re simply hanging around awaiting the time we are able to yet again step foot into some of those airports, so throughout the next few weeks we’ll possibly be posting some of these features each week.

If you want to add a notice about a characteristic or amenity you adore about an airport that we don’t mention, we inspire you to add it within the comments segment below.

Keep in mind: some facilities may be briefly unavailable due to COVID-19 worries.

And if you want to sponsor one of the “5 Things We Love About…” entries, get in touch.
