Airports

With hundreds of direct and non-stop flights arriving and departing daily from around the world, Puerto Rico has become the international airport hub of the Caribbean. Two principal airports offer trips from major cities in the United States, international destinations, and other Caribbean islands.

San Juan Airport

The largest and most accessible one is the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport, commonly known as the San Juan Airport (SJU). Located in Isla Verde – in the Carolina district – this airport is just minutes away from San Juan. More than 20 commercial airlines fly in and out of the city every day.

  • Puerto Rico has daily nonstop flights to major cities throughout the United States, totaling more than 588 flights on a weekly basis.
  • There are nonstop flights available to Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Jacksonville, West Palm Beach, Orlando, Charlotte, Philadelphia, Hartford, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Newark, New York (JFK), Boston, Chicago (ORD), Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Detroit, and Minneapolis. Airlines that fly between Puerto Rico and the USA are American Airlines, Delta, JetBlue, Southwest, United, Frontier and Spirit. 
  • San Juan is the leading gateway to the Eastern Caribbean. Several airlines operate over 100 daily flights to over 20 destinations in the Caribbean. Airlines that fly to and from San Juan to the Caribbean include Cape Air, JetBlue, Seaborne, LIAT, Vieques Airlink, Tradewind Aviation, and Air Flamenco.
  • There are several flights to Latin America: 18 flights to Panamá City and daily flights to Bogotá

  • Iberia has seasonal flights and primary connections to Madrid and Caracas.
  • There is one weekly flight to Frankfurt, Germany operated by Condor Airlines.

Aguadilla Airport

The other airport with international flights is the Rafael Hernández Airport in Aguadilla, in the northwest region of Puerto Rico. Comparably smaller than the SJU, this hangar receives commercial flights from major airlines such as Jet Blue, National Airlines, Spirit Airlines, United Airlines, and private charters.

Other Airports

Jet Blue also arrives at La Mercedita, a smaller airport in the southern city of Ponce.

If you’re looking to fly to Puerto Rico’s smaller islands and cays or nearby Caribbean destinations, the Fernando Luis Ribas Dominicci Airport is a better option than the two major airports. Also known as Aeropuerto de Isla Grande, this single-runway airport offers daily flights through three local airlines and private charters.

Other small airports for private flights and charters are in Ceiba, Arecibo, Mayagüez, Fajardo and Humacao.
