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.

Airport

Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport offers 80 daily nonstop flights to cities across the U.S. 

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.

Aguadilla Airport

The other airport with international flights is the Rafael Hernández Airport (BQN) 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.

Mercedita International Airport

The Mercedita International Airport (PSE) in Ponce receives a handful of commercial flights from the mainland U.S., mainly to cities like Orlando and New York City, with services from JetBlue. Smaller than SJU and BQN, Mercedita is ideal if your time on the Island is mostly on the south region. 

Group arriving in Culebra

Travelers can catch a quick flight to Culebra from SJU or Isla Grande airports.

Other Airports

If you’re looking to fly to Puerto Rico’s smaller islands, like Culebra and Vieques, 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.
