San Fracisco to New York

Are you planning to travel from San Francisco to New York City?

If so, you have plenty of options to help you get there. Some travelers choose to fly commercial from coast to coast. If you have enough time on your hands, you could choose to drive for three days (and be exhausted when you finally arrive!).

Or, you could hop aboard a luxury private jet on a journey tailored just for you.

With no connecting flights, long security lines, or layovers to delay your trip, you can spend more time enjoying the flight and arrived in the Big Apple ready for sightseeing. And regardless of whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, you’ll have plenty of comfort and entertainment along for the ride.

Today we’re sharing our favorite things about flying private with XO, as well as some of the advantages you can expect every time you board.

The Weather in New York

Need help packing for your trip? Keep in mind that New York’s weather isn’t quite as stable as that of San Francisco. Packing a jacket when it’s warm and sunny at home might be the farthest thing from your mind, but for three out of four seasons, you’ll want to make it a priority in your luggage.

During the winter, temperatures average in the mid-20s with at least 7-8 days of rain. January is the coldest month, averaging no higher than 39 degrees Fahrenheit. The city also sees about 28 inches of snow each year, though not all at once.

Spring and fall are fairly mild, while summers are warm and humid. Temperatures average about 84 degrees in peak season. Rain is a fairly common occurrence year-round, with roughly 7-8 days of rainfall each month.
