Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC)
(San Jose, California - CA, USA)
Next to Santa Clara, the US-101 and I-880, the Norman Y. Mineta San José International Airport (SJC) is to be found just to the northwest of San Jose. Although this is actually the smallest of the three airports in the Bay area, it still handles close to 11 million passengers per year, although the overall capacity is much greater.
Ambitious expansion plans are currently underway and in August 2007, a major ceremony was held to celebrate a construction milestone of the new North Concourse. Mineta San Jose Airport is a medium-sized airport, offering flights with major carriers to destinations all over the US and to many international cities through its two terminals. International destinations include Taipei, Britain, Hong Kong, China, Vietnam and India.
The convenient VTA Airport Flyer bus runs continuously from Mineta San Jose Airport to Santa Clara Caltrain Station, and then on to San José Metro / Airport LRT Station (a light rail service that runs throughout the Bay area). There are also scheduled buses to nearby Sunnyvale, the Santa Clara County, and the beachfront resorts of Santa Cruz and Monterey, while shuttles and charter buses run to all points. Taxis and limousines are also readily available, offering convenience that is hard to match.
