History

Dedicated on August 16, 1928, the new airport was given the prominent name San Diego Municipal Airport - Lindbergh Field. This naming occurred because San Diego holds the honor of being the city from which Charles Lindbergh began the journey that would ultimately become the first solo transatlantic flight. Additionally, the airport holds the distinction of being the first federally certified airfield to serve all aircraft types, including seaplanes. The original terminal was located on the northeastern side of the field, along Pacific Coast Highway. The airport also holds the distinction of serving as a testing facility for several early U.S. sailplane designs, notably those by William Hawley Bowlus (Superintendent of Construction on the Spirit of St. Louis) who also operated the Bowlus Glider School at Lindbergh Field from 1929-1930. On June 1, 1930, a regular San Diego-Los Angeles airmail route was initiated. The airport gained 'international airport' status in 1934, and a United States Coast Guard Air Base located adjacent to the field was commissioned in April 1937.

World War II brought significant change to the airfield when the U.S. Army Air Corps took it over in 1942 to support the war effort. The infrastructure of the airport was improved to handle the heavy bombers being manufactured in the region during the war. This transformation, including an 8,750-foot (2,670 m) runway, made the airport "jet-ready' long before jet passenger planes came into widespread service [1]. After the war, commercial air service at Lindbergh Field expanded rapidly. Pacific Southwest Airlines established its headquarters in San Diego and inaugurated service at Lindbergh Field in 1949 to points throughout California. In 1960, Lindbergh Field gained its first jet service, with American Airlines and United Airlines operating the Boeing 720 to Phoenix and San Francisco, respectively.

Tragedy struck on September 25, 1978, when a Pacific Southwest Airlines Boeing 727, operating as PSA Flight 182, suffered a mid-air collision with a privately owned Cessna 172 while on final approach to Lindbergh Field, ultimately crashing into a dense neighbood apartment near University Ave. off of the I-805 corridor.

The original terminal was used until the 1960s, but by that time, air traffic in San Diego had increased considerably and new facilities were needed badly. The current Terminal 1 was opened on the southern side of the airport property on March 5, 1967. It was not until July 11, 1979 that Terminal 2 was opened. A third terminal, dubbed the Commuter Terminal, opened on July 23, 1996. Terminal 2 was later expanded by 300,000 square feet (30,000 m²) in 1998. This article is about the day. ...

The approach from the east is steep, necessitated by terrain which drops from 266 feet (81 m) to sea level in less than a mile. Aircraft normally descend at 317' per mile, but in San Diego they must descend at 376' per mile. San Diego's only runway is located at the base of a hill lined with several obstructions, including the I-5 freeway and trees in Balboa Park. Contrary to local lore, the parking structure off the end of the runway was built long after previous obstructions built up east of the I-5. The parking structure was then built up to this controlling limit. Aircraft clear the parking structure by the required 109 feet (33 m). For considerations of sea level change, in particular rise associated with possible global warming, see sea level rise. ...


Aircraft arriving from the east do not land at the end of the runway as at most airports, but land at what is called a displaced threshold, located 1,810 feet (550 m) from the runway end, effectively shortening the landing distance to 7,591 feet (2,314 m). Aircraft departing to the west use the east end of the runway as their departure point. A displaced threshold is a runway threshold located at a point other than the physical end of the runway. ...


Reverse operations

Under fog or Santa Ana wind conditions, operations are reversed with landings and takeoffs to the east. Because of the terrain, weight limits are imposed on departing aircraft under these conditions. For other uses, see Fog (disambiguation). ... The Santa Ana winds in Southern California sweep down wide across the deserts and across the Los Angeles Basin pushing dust and smoke from wildfires far out into the Pacific Ocean. ...


Terrain east and west of the airport greatly impacts the available runway length. Runway 27 (heading west) has a climb gradient of 317' per nautical mile leaving an equivalent takeoff distance of roughly 8,700' (7,000' for twin engine aircraft) compared to a non-terrain airport. Taking off to the east requires a 600' per mile climb rate, this leaves an equivalent takeoff distance of 6,400', enough to force a weight penalty on the 737-800. It should also be noted that Lindbergh Field does not have standard "Runway Safety Areas" 1,000' in length at each runway end. An Engineered Material Arresting System (EMAS) has been installed at the west end of the runway to catch any aircraft overruns, but its 350' length vs. a standard 600' EMAS can only for certain stop aircraft up to 350,000 lb (160,000 kg) in weight. The east end of the runway does not have such a system as its use would reduce the runway length by at least 400', further impacting the runway's capability.


Noise curfew

SAN is located in a highly populated area. To appease the airport's neighbors' concerns over noise and the associated lawsuit, a curfew was put in place in 1979. Departures are allowed between 6:30 AM and 11:30 PM. Outside those hours, departures are subject to a large fine. Arrivals are permitted 24 hours per day. Several flights are scheduled with departure times before 6:15 AM. These times, however, are pushback times. First takeoff roll is at 6:30 AM.


Current status

As of June 2008, San Diego International Airport will be served by 25 airlines which will fly to 59 destinations in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the United Kingdom.


The busiest route from SAN is to LAX in terms of daily operations. However, most of the passengers traveling to LAX connect to other flights, many whom connect to international flights. The SAN-LAX route comprises approximately 8% of passenger traffic and over 16% of the flight operations, due to the use of small aircraft. However, the distribution of these flights across an 18 hour day results in very little impact to the peak operational capacity of the airport, a period of time from 11:30 AM to 1:30 pm daily. With 514 flight operations per week, the SAN-LAX route is the third busiest in the United States, trailing only Honolulu-Kahului (639 weekly flight operations) and Las Vegas-Los Angeles (553 weekly flight operations).[3]


British Airways operated the only international service from San Diego to outside North America, until 2003. Originally an international extension to the daily London Gatwick to Phoenix Skyharbour International service operated by a Boeing 747-400, it was replaced by a daily direct service using a Boeing 777 from 2001. However, although it ranked higher in average daily seat occupation terms at 188 seats than the average U.S. international flight, most passengers were economy level which reduced BA's margins in its core business passenger target market.[4] Although the number of passengers passing through SAN has increased dramatically since then, no airline had filed for intercontinental service until December 2007 when Zoom Airlines Limited announced non-stop service to London Gatwick. It was believed that airlines refrained from offering intercontinental service due to the weight penalties imposed by the rising terrain both east and west of the airport. These penalties severely impacted the economic viability of long-haul international service. For the 1930s airline of similar name, see British Airways Ltd. ...

In January 2008, San Diego International Airport entered the blogosphere with the launch of the first employee blog - the Goodwill Ambassablog - for a major U.S. airport. Written by front-line employees, the blog features regular posts on airport activities, events and initiatives; reader comments; and several multimedia and interactive features. It has been presented as a case study in employee blogging to several public agencies at the federal, state and local levels.


USCG operations

An interesting feature of the airport is the existence of the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) air station in the south-east corner of the airfield. The air station is physically separated from the rest of the airfield, such that USCG fixed-wing aircraft must cross a busy, 6-lane city street to reach the runway; street light activation opens the locked gates to the airfield and the air station, and also stops traffic while aircraft are transversing the street.

Relocation proposals

California Assembly Bill AB 93[5] created the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority in 2001. The [6] SDCRAA believes that Lindbergh Field will reach capacity between 2015 and 2022. In June 2006, SDCRAA board members selected Marine Corps Air Station Miramar as its preferred site for a replacement airport, despite military objections. On November 7, 2006, San Diego County residents defeated an advisory relocation which included a joint use proposal measure.[7] This presents an interesting twist on San Diego's aviation future. Industry experts agree that Lindbergh Field will in fact run out of capacity, although when can be debated. The airport is operating with 70% of its total gate capacity of 64 gates and will soon add 10 more gates taking the airport to 86% of its total gate capacity. There has also been some thought given to the creation of a supplemental airport (possibly a smaller Miramar or Camp Pendleton airport at some point in the future with close parallel runways) because of the level of investment that will now be required to maximize Lindbergh Field's efficiency going forward until it is effectively "out of capacity" driving demand for a new airport. Lindbergh might be used in the same way Midway (Chicago), Hobby (Houston) and Love Field (Dallas) are with the new airport being used by the major carriers and cargo carriers.

The extreme proximity of the airport to MCRD San Diego and populous neighborhoods is clearly evident here.

The current site of the airport is bounded by San Diego Bay, military facilities, and residential areas. Extension into the bay is an undesirable option because the required landfill would interfere with nearby U.S. naval operations and shipping lanes. Furthermore, such an addition would not properly address projected capacity demands. The adjacent military land remains in active use and is not currently available, over 60% of the land has structures of historical significance that will preclude demolition. Using residential land, although possible through eminent domain, is publicly and politically unpopular. USN redirects here. ...

Twenty-two studies have been conducted on where to place an airport dating back to 1923. The first study developed the site location plan for Lindbergh field. Eighteen studies were conducted by private groups, most in the early days by those who were opposed to Lindbergh being built instead of on land set aside at what is now Montgomery Field. One was a revisitation of a study done in the 80's by the City in a "pre-BRAC" push in 1994 when Miramar closed and was then transferred to a Marine Base. Another was by the City of San Diego in 1984 and another that started in 1996 and sat dormant with SANDAG until the Airport Authority was formed in 2001. This study is the first study ever done to look for a new site by an agency that actually had jurisdiction over the issue, and the first non-site specific comprehensive study of the entire region. Montgomery Field (IATA: MYF, ICAO: KMYF, FAA LID: MYF) is a public airport located six miles (10 km) north of the central business district (CBD) of San Diego, in San Diego County, California, USA. The airport covers 456 acres and has three runways and two helipads. ...
