Getting to Long Beach 

By Plane

Long Beach has their own regional airport (LGB), which is seven minutes from downtown Long Beach, however, due to the proximity to other international airports, getting to and from Long Beach is much easier than you might think. Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Orange County’s John Wayne Airport (SNA) are both less than 30 minutes away from downtown Long Beach.
