Will I have to go through security when changing terminals at SJC Will 20-40min be enough time to recheck bags & Change terminals at 9pm at night?
The two terminals are connected by a walkway inside security but if you have to claim and re-check bags you will have to exit security to do that. With checked bags I think you definitely don't have enough time to do this.
While food & drink at Mineta's Terminal A is presently limited to passengers only, those who yearn for fresh ingredients in their sandwich or salad, and get it quickly, may want to consider Fresh Attractions at the connector to gates 1-8 and 14. Starbucks is at gate 12/13.
San Jose Mineta Airport has two large passenger terminals A & B. Terminal A underwent considerable renovation and expansion, and includes an international arrivals building with customs, with gates 15 & 16. All international flights depart from - and Volaris airline arrives at - Terminal A, and passengers must clear customs prior to entering their gates. A new state-of-the-art Terminal B, opened only a few months ago, replaced the old Terminal C. Terminal B has a North Concourse with gates 17-28; a South Concourse may be built if expansion is warranted.
