  • Spirit to Jet Blue
    Aug 3, 2016
    Arrive SJU 2:00 pm on Spirit with checked bag. Need to be on Jet Blue flight at 4:00 pm. Do I have enough time to get bag and check in on Jet Blue? Will I need to go through security again?


    Yes, you will have to go through security again after you transfer your bag from Spirit to JetBlue. This is a very difficult connection.


  • Domestic to international connection
    Jul 31, 2016
    My flight Departs from jfk at 6:20am with JetBlue and lands in SJU at 10:06am. My next flight leaves from SJU at 10:45am on JetBlue to Punta Cana, DR. My questions are...will I have enough time to make it to my connecting flight since it's only a 39min layover? And do I have pick up my luggage at SJU and recheck it and go through customs before boarding my connecting flight to DR? Please help, a bit nervous.


    ALl you have to do in San Juan is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.


  • Boarding passes
    Jul 28, 2016
    My daughter is coming from EIS on Seaborne to SJU then connecting to Chicago on AA. Seaborne didn't give her boarding passes for her other flights. Can she get her boarding passes inside security? She has 2 hours there. She checked a bag and it will go all the way to her final destination.


    Yes, she should be able to get her AA boarding pass at the AA gate in SJU.


    Thanks for the info. She ended up with her bag outside of security after coming out of customs. Which was a good thing because her flight to ORD was delayed 5hrs and they put her on another flight, which she made...luckily she had tsa precheck to go back through security. She's gone through SJU 8 times now and seems like it's different each time. At least Verizon works there now. Thx


    Yeah, coming from the BVI, yeah she would be outside security after customs.


  • Ord to Stt
    Aug 12, 2016
    I'm flying United from Ord to Stt changing planes to Cape Air in San Juan to Stt . Do I have to claim bags in San Juan? .


    Are your flights on two separate reservations or one reservation? What airlines are you flying?


    I have the same question with the same destinations, flying in with United and flying the STT with Seaborne Air. So we have to grab our bag from baggage claim and go through security again? It was all made on one reservations. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!


    If your ticket was booked on one reservation, you will not have to claim bags upon landing in San Juan. You will simply have to go from your United arrival gate to your Seaborne departure gate. However, beware that Seaborne may depart in a separate concourse, causing you to have to go through security anyways.


  • AA Concourse B to Cape Air Concourse D
    Jun 30, 2016
    Last time we took this trip, an SJU employee directed us to go outside the airport to walk (a LONG walk) to get from concourse B to our Cape Air flight at Concourse D. We have an hour and quarter layover so time is tight this time. Do we really have to go outside or can we stay inside the concourses? Any tips to save time are appreciated. Carry-on luggage only!


    The indoors connection requires going through security again. I suggest you take the same route you did last time.


    Thank you so very much, ZAP! It's a relief to know that we're going the fastest route possible. Your reply is much appreciated!


  • Short time to get to board southwest from ape air
    Jun 27, 2016
    We are flying in today from cape air st Croix to San Juan to catch southwest flight...we have a delay in st Croix and have 2 checked bags with less than 1hr 😕


    With checked bags I don't think you'll make it.


  • tight connection b/t Southwest Airlines to Seaborne Airlines
    Jan 29, 2017
    We have never been to SJU and have a tight connection coming up between a Southwest flight from HOU landing at SJU at 4:10pm and a departing Seaborne flight to STT that leaves at 5:10pm. We will have a carry on bag only. From reading other posts, it seems like we can stay inside security between concourse B (where Southwest operates) and concourse D (where Seaborne operates). Is it true that we can stay inside security? Also, can Seaborne airlines print our boarding pass at the SJU gate?


    Yes, that is true and Seaborne should be able to issue your boarding pass at the gate.


    How did this work out for you? I have a similar situation. Eight of us land in SJU at 2:10 via Southwest and depart for STT at 3:20 via American. Carry-on bags only. Any complications for you?


    Tight Connection time was fine with carry on only. Seaborne airlines changed our flight time multiple times and ended up running late. Since you are flying AA, you shouldn't have that issue.


  • Transfer to Air Antilles flight at Christmas
    Jun 8, 2016
    Air Antilles Flight Departs at 2:30 pm to SXM. How much time do I need for incoming flight layover with Checked Bags? My best options are 90 minutes on united and 75 minutes on Southwest


    I honestly would want more time than either of those.


    Thanks. One more. Do I need to clear security again after customs going from an SXM arrival to Southwest flight with only carry-on luggage?


  • Cape Air and American Airlines

    How long does it take to get from Cape Air Terminal to American Airlines Terminal


  • STT>SJU>Tampa
    May 12, 2016
    Seaborne flight from STT landing in SJU at 2:40. Then trying to catch a 3:20pm to Tampa. Carryons only. Doable? Are the airlines near each other in the SJU airport?


    Sorry the 3:20 flight to Tampa is with Southwest.


    Without checked bags this is barely possible if the Seaborne flight arrives on-time and you are already checked in online for your Southwest flight.


  • SJU Dominica Connection
    Apr 25, 2016
    South West Flight from BWI arrives SJU at 12:25pm. Planning to take 2pm LIAT flight to Dominica. Is this doable?


    Without checked bags you can definitely do this. With checked bags it depends on the Southwest flight being on-time and the bags coming out quickly. Also note that LIAT is fairly unreliable and unprofessional.


  • tight connection on JetBlue
    Apr 25, 2016
    Do all JetBlue arrivals and departures go out of the same concourse or terminal. I only have 45 mins between them. Will I have to go through customs again when I arrive in PR from Boston? I am traveling from Boston to San Juan then from San Juan to St. Maarten.


    I land in San Juan from St. Maarten on Jet Blue at 4:47 pm and have a 5:31 pm flight to catch on American, going to Miami. I only have carry on luggage. Will I be able to make the American flight?


    Wow! Jet Blue and American Airlines are in different terminals. I would say about a 10 minute walk. The only problem is having to check in at the AA counter and then the TSA line which will be at least a good 15 minutes. I was just there Tuesday and even though it was moving the TSA lines had over 50 each. 45 minutes would work if it was just a connection with the same airline. Also, remeber, PR is still the USA, so no passport no customs for US citizens unless you are entering the US from an international flight. From Boston, you just come out of the gate and can walk right out to the street b/c you will still be in the USA


    That St. Maarten->SJU->Miami connection is not possible since it is international to domestic on two separate airlines.

  • Virgin Gorda to Fll
    Apr 4, 2016
    I have a one hour lay over in San Juan coming from Virgin Gorda to Fll . Will I be going through customs in Fort Lauderdale or when I Land in San Juan?


    You will go through US Immigration and Customs in San Juan.


    Thank you know How far is that coming from cape air to jet blue ? Knowing I only have an hour to spare to go through customs to security and the gate ?


    Good luck, that will be difficult, but Cape Air might be able to pull a few strings.


  • distance between terminals
    Apr 5, 2016
    What is the approximate distance from terminal A to Terminal C


    SJU only has one terminal. A and C are concourses.


    Thank you. I have only a 45 min. Layover with JetBlue going from concourse C to A. How much time do you think it would take for this connection?
