As Memorial Day weekend marks the start of the busy summer travel season, the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority is reminding San Diego International Airport (SAN) visitors to keep several useful tips in mind to help quickly and safely navigate through the airport.
Arrive at least 1½ hours before departure for domestic flights and 2 ½ hours for international flights. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) website provides helpful tips on how to reduce wait times at security checkpoints, such as how to pack and what items are permitted.
Commuter Terminal Airline Relocation
Beginning June 4, all airlines in the Commuter Terminal will be relocated to their respective airline gates in Terminals 1 and 2 to help streamline the travel experience for passengers. Changes include:
– United Airlines service (operated by United Express) will move to Terminal 2 West
– American Airlines service (operated by American Eagle) will move to Terminal 2 East
– All Seaport Airlines service will operate out of Terminal 1
The new dual-level roadway, which opened in August 2013 as part of The Green Build expansion, eases curbside congestion by separating arriving and departing passengers in Terminal 2. With 32 airline counters and 20 easy-to-use curbside kiosks, departing passengers can check-in, print their boarding pass and check luggage before even entering the terminal.
TSA Pre✓™ at San Diego International Airport. TSA Pre ✓™ offers expedited screening for eligible participants. TSA Pre✓™ lanes are available for passengers traveling through SAN on the following airlines:
– Terminal 1 – Alaska Airlines, Southwest
– Terminal 2 – Air Canada, JetBlue, Hawaiian, American, Delta, United, Virgin America, Sun Country Airlines and US Airways
Green is for the Long-Term Lot (formerly SAN Park Harbor Drive), located east of the airport.
Blue is for the Economy Lot (formerly SAN Park Pacific Hwy), located north of the airfield.
Free shuttle buses from these short- and long-term lots to all airport terminals are also color-coded and sport scenes of popular San Diego County destinations.
Shops and Restaurants
The Airport Authority has increased its shopping and dining options from 55 to 85 as part of its Concession Development Program. New offerings include favorite local, national and international concepts such as Phil’s BBQ, Stone Brewing Co., Einstein Bros. Bagels, Jack in the Box and many more.
Volunteer Airport Ambassadors
Dressed in their distinctive green polo shirts, Volunteer Airport Ambassadors (VAAs) provide way-finding and other forms of assistance to passengers from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. VAAs are based at the information desks in the baggage claim areas of Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. They also roam the airport and operate a courtesy shuttle in Terminal 2 West to assist guests with mobility impairments.
With more than 315 VAAs, this is one of the largest volunteer airport programs in the country.
