SJU airport question.
      #1667234 - 10/17/15 11:09 AM (50.109.110.77)

Hello all, haven't posted here in ages. First a little info, then my question. We will be flying Southwest to San Juan then JetBlue to SXM and we will travel with carry on only. My question, will we have to go back thru security at SJU before going to our JetBlue gate?

I can't think of why you think that you will have to go through security. It us like any other U.S. airport. No your return trip is a different story. You have to go through customs and immigration just like any other U.S. airport, so you will have to go through security after they determine that you are not an illegal alien drug-runner.

I didn't think so, but I didn't know for sure so I asked the question. Have been thru SJU many times ( going down and coming back ) but never flying 2 different airlines. Thanks for the reply.

I think it was a very reasonable question. I don't know a thing about the San Juan airport, but it's entirely possible that you'll have to leave the secure gate area to change from one airline to another. If they have a terminal layout online, you may be able to look at that and get a better idea. Hopefully someone who really knows the answer will respond with an educated answer.

I don't know for sure either, and I go from SJU Terminal D to Terminal A a few times each year. I always have a porter with a cart full of bags. I'm already out of the secure area by the time I arrive in baggage claim in D, and take as direct a route as possible to A.
