Thanksgiving is this Thursday, Nov. 23, and AAA estimates 4.69 million Americans will be flying for the holiday (Wednesday, Nov. 22-Sunday, Nov. 26). This would be the greatest number of Thanksgiving fliers since 2005, and the first time air travel will exceed pre-pandemic numbers.
- A new vehicle entrance to Terminal 1 is now open heading westbound on North Harbor Drive; it comes up sooner than the prior entrance.
- Parking is limited (and expensive), so make plans in advance.
- SAN recommends arriving two hours early to accommodate for longer lines, especially for security or checking bags.
Pro tip: Check our SAN Airport guide for more ways to prepare your pre-flight journey.
