TRAVEL TO THE CONFERENCE
    AIR TRAVEL

    SUSY06 will be held in Irvine and Newport Beach, California. The conference site is conveniently located near the many airports of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. Orange County Airport (SNA), also known as John Wayne Airport) is the most convenient; it is located just 5 miles from the conference site and has regular service to and from all major U.S. airports by all major carriers. Also convenient are Los Angeles International Airport (LAX, 44 miles) and the Long Beach Airport (LGB, 25 miles). Other nearby airports with connections to all major American cities are the Ontario International Airport (ONT, 47 miles), the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank (BUR, 56 miles), and the San Diego International Airport (SAN, 85 miles).

    Foreign participants may travel to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), or transfer through any of the major American airports and arrive directly at Orange County Airport (SNA). Prices to SNA are subject to the considerable vagaries of airfare pricing, but are often comparable to the inexpensive fares for travel to LAX.
