Los Angeles is truly a global city, welcoming millions of domestic and international travelers every year to each of its several area airports. Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is the sixth busiest airport in the world, serving more than 61 million passengers a year. Its West Coast location makes it a gateway for international travelers, particularly those arriving from Asia and the Pacific. Nearly every major domestic carrier services LAX, as well numerous international airlines, smaller airlines and low-cost carri­ers. Other LA airports include LA/Ontario International Airport (ONT) and Bob Hope Airport in Burbank (BUR). LA/Ontario is located east of Downtown LA and serves the city’s eastern suburbs. Bob Hope Airport is centrally located in the San Fernando Valley, making it a good choice for visitors exploring the Valley or as an alternate airport for those headed to Hollywood or Downtown.
