More About Flights to Long Beach

Route Your Flight Through Popular Hubs

Travelers can get nonstop flights to Long Beach from Sacramento, Anchorage, Austin, Boston, Las Vegas, New York, Oakland, Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington DC. Most destinations are serviced by only one airline, so travelers don’t have many options. Those catching connecting flights to Long Beach Airport, however, can improve their travel by heading for one of these hubs.

Travel + Leisure named the Portland International Airport the best in the country with excellent food and shopping, plus a stellar on-time departure record of 87.5%. The Austin-Bergstrom International Airport ranks third.

Enjoy More Options Through LAX

Travelers who have airline miles to cash in for cheap flights, or who prefer a specific airline not available through the Long Beach Airport, can find suitable flights going to the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). While the Long Beach Airport is serviced by just four airlines, LAX has dozens of options. The LAX SuperShuttle offers service to the Long Beach Airport. It’s less than half an hour from LAX to Long Beach.

Use the Long Beach Transit Bus for Under Two Dollars

Four bus routes stop by the Long Beach Airport, with fares of $1.25. With a total of 34 bus routes throughout the city, this cheap transportation service connects travelers to nearly any destination. Long Beach also has numerous bike paths, so visitors can get by easily with busses and bike rentals if they don’t want to rent a car.

Visit Long Beach in Early Fall

Spring and fall are the most popular seasons in Long Beach, but with the nearly perfect weather comes a swarm of other visitors who drive up prices. The city is less popular in summer, when the dreaded “June Gloom” falls over the coast. This local term refers to overcast weather that’s typical in this period. Brave the gloom and you may find some great deals.

Early fall is an excellent time, too. Avoid holiday flights by traveling in October, and enjoy comfortable temperatures in the mid-70s during the day and upper 50s at night.
