Los Angeles

Home to movie stars and celebrities it’s no surprise that Los Angeles is one on the nation’s top private jet charter destinations. Initially put on the map by Hollywood, and still the Entertainment Capital of the World, this sprawling city in the Southern California desert has morphed into a trend-setting cultural metropolis.

Fans of the silver screen can head to Hollywood to experience The Hollywood Walk of Fame and the landmark Grauman’s Chinese Theatre or journey to Los Angeles of the past at The Getty Villa and Griffith Observatory. Sports enthusiasts will be wowed by two NFL teams, two NBA teams, the legendary Dodgers and two-time Stanley Cup Winners The LA Kings. If food is your passion, Los Angeles offers everything from street tacos to farm-to-table California Cuisine.

Located in an area locals refer to as “ The Valley,” Van Nuys Airport (KVNY) is the primary airport welcoming private charters into Los Angeles. Like its commercial counterpart, Los Angeles International Airport (KLAX), Van Nuys is an international airport with customs clearing services. Although LAX allows private charter flights, and even has a plush new facility called “The Private Suite,” it’s also ranked 5th on the list of World’s Busiest Airports. This means increased congestion, both on ground and in air, not to mention higher fees, making Van Nuys Airport a better choice for private charters into Los Angeles.

Two regional airports service domestic private charters into Los Angeles. Ten minutes east of LAX you’ll find Hawthorne Municipal Airport (KHHR). This growing airport, adjacent to Elon Musk’s SpaceX, offers shuttle service to LAX and provides quick access to the new Los Angeles Stadium. Bob Hope Burbank Airport (KBUR), a commercial airport, is located 20 minutes east of the Van Nuys Airport. Although centrally located, the historic Santa Monica Airport (KSMO) is slowly working towards a close in 2028, with an imminent runway shortening and various regulations that limit its use.

Residents of this sprawling city know that selecting the right airport is an important step in avoiding LA’s notorious traffic so consult with an ElJet Travel Portfolio Manager to determine which LA Area airport will provide the quickest access to your destination.
