San Francisco Airport Guide to San Francisco Airport (SFO)

SFO Terminal 3

San Francisco Airport Terminal 3 stands for a domestic terminal, hosting outbound and inbound flights only by United to several cities within the US.

Terminal 3 was formerly known as the North Terminal. 

As well as SFO Terminal 2, Terminal 3 is an eco-friendly facility thanks to the solar roof installed back in 2007, which generates sufficient power to light all Terminal 3 during the day. 

It is home of boarding gates E (E60-69), F (F70-90, including 87A) and G (G91-102), sharing some gates with the International Terminal.
