Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport (IATA: SJC, ICAO: KSJC, FAA LID: SJC) is a public airport in San Jose, Santa Clara County,
California. It is named for San Jose native Norman Yoshio Mineta, Transportation Secretary in the Cabinet of George W. Bush and Commerce Secretary in
the Cabinet of Bill Clinton. The name also recognizes Mineta's service as a Councilman for, and Mayor of, San Jose.
It is two miles northwest of Downtown San Jose near the intersections of U.S. Route 101, Interstate 880, and State Route 87. The dominant carrier

The San Jose City Council has considered renaming the airport San Jose/Silicon Valley Mineta International Airport. The city believes that the new
name would help airlines' marketing.
