San Antonio Airport-San Antonio International

By

Overview:

Unlike many cities of similar size, the local San Antonio airport is not located in a suburban area. Instead, it is located near the heart of the city in the North Central area of San Antonio. Because of this, traffic can be a real pain but the completion of an expansion of Loop 410 near the airport has helped alleviate some of that congestion.
