San Francisco International Airport (IATA: SFO, ICAO: KSFO, FAA LID: SFO) is an international airport 13 miles south of downtown San Francisco, California, United States. SFO is the largest airport in Northern California and the second-busiest in CA, after Los Angeles International Airport. The City and County of San Francisco first leased 150 acres (61 ha) at the present airport site on March 15, 1927. The airport's name was officially "San Francisco Airport" in 1931, upon the purchase of the land, and "International" was added at the end of World War II as overseas service rapidly expanded. In 2014, it was the seventh-busiest in USA and the twenty-first-busiest airport in the world by passenger count. It is the fifth-largest hub for United Airlines and functions as United Airlines' primary transpacific gateway. It also serves as Virgin America's principal base of operations. It is the sole maintenance hub of United Airlines, and houses the Louis A. Turpen Aviation Museum and Library.
