Taking a Flight From the Long Beach Airport

Flying away for a weekend trip is no problem at all for Long Beach residents. The Long Beach Airport, built in 1941, has continued to evolve with the city while still retaining its historic character. Acting as a convenient hub for residents of the surrounding neighborhoods and cities like Lakewood and Signal Hill, LGB provides easy access and a great alternative to the hassle of the behemoth LAX.


The places you can go from Long Beach’s airport are quite diverse from coast to coast. Over the years, new airlines have started serving LGB. While the flights used to be largely furnished by JetBlue and Southwest, they now offer flights with Delta Airlines, American Airlines, and Hawaiian Airlines. Breeze Airways is also scheduled to start flying in and out of LGB in Fall 2022. Multiple flights head to northern California. Whether this means traveling to Sacramento for business, or a quick trip up from Oakland to wine country for the weekend, it’s a breeze to travel from Long Beach.

For the weekend party crowd, LGB offers direct flights to Las Vegas and Reno. While you can certainly make the drive to Vegas in a few hours, it can be a crapshoot on whether or not traffic will get you to Sin City in four hours or seven. Reno itself is only a short drive away from Lake Tahoe for winter sports and access to the Sierras.

If you’re feeling a bit adventurous, Long Beach Airport offers a few more ambitious options. Book a nonstop ticket to Hawaii for a relaxing, tropical getaway, or schedule a backpacking trip in Denver, Colorado! For all of our country music lovers, Southwest Airlines is introducing non-stop flights to Nashville, Tennessee on November 6th, 2022.
