The Santa Barbara Municipal Airport (SBA) airport, adjacent to UCSB, is served by the following airlines:
The Santa Barbara Municipal Airport (SBA), approximately 8
miles west of downtown Santa Barbara, is most convenient and is served
by express airlines codesharing with the above airlines. For more info, see
From there, we recommend taking the Eos Transportation shuttle - very convenient and less expensive than taxis ($15-18 one-way versus $32-40 for a taxi).
There is usually a shuttle waiting at the airport for deplaning passengers, otherwise
there is a courtesy phone in the baggage claim area. Also, it's convenient
and a bit less expensive to schedule a round-trip with them. For more
info, see Eos Transportation.
Flying into Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is about
a 2-hour drive southeast of Santa Barbara and is served by most major
airlines and rental car companies. As an alternative to renting a car,
Barbara Airbus can take you from LAX to either downtown Santa Barbara
or Goleta. They offer discounted rates for round-trips and pre-paid trips.

Airport (BUR) is also about 2 hours from Santa Barbara, with airfares usually
comparable to LAX fares. See Burbankairport.com for more information.

from Los Angeles, Burbank Airport, and San Diego. The station is about 1
