For those who have traveled to yosemite, if you flew, where did you fly into?

I drove from San Francisco (where I was staying at the time). The drive took 4 hours to the park entrance.

According to this National Geographic website, Fresno-Yosemite is the nearest airport. However, not sure how many flights there are to that airport.

ok, thanks. I might be working in Yosemite for the summer, and I was just weighing my transportation options.

I would check prices into San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Sacremento as well as Fresno-Yosemite.

Especially if you can grab an Amtrack from Oakland, the price from the airports in the Bay area might be a great choice.
