Contours of Sacramento International Airport (SMF) Terminal B emulate the mountain ranges

'Alternative airports' earn sky-high approvals among travelers who use them. The majority would do so again to feel less stress than flying through a major airport like San Francisco International (SFO). Other benefits include lower airfares, affordable parking and overall convenience. 

The ease is catching on. Half of U.S. adults who have traveled by jet in the past year used an alternative airport. Harris Interactive is revealing 'one of travel's best kept secrets (to) significant time- and money-savings."

Thanksgiving is eight weeks away, so consider the increasingly popular Sacramento International Airport: outbound travelers have uncongested freeways and park for less, while inbound travelers realize easy access to the San Francisco Bay Area and other Northern California destinations.

Don't miss the breathtaking, brand new Terminal B. The architectural design elements and reclaimed building materials emulate the natural beauty that surrounds the capital.  

Simply check the alternative airport box as you do your online fare search... and don't forget Southwest Airlines, the largest carrier at Sacramento International, whose rates don't appear on most online booking web sites.
