Summer is getting ready to take off, but San Diego International Airport (SAN) is preparing for an end-of-season travel rush on Labor Day weekend.
According to the Transportation Security Administration, this summer’s airport traffic has exceeded pre-pandemic levels from 2019. This holiday weekend SAN anticipates at least 80,000 travelers daily, Friday-Tuesday.
If you’re going on a trip, make sure you’re packed with info and know how to navigate the airport.
- Arrive at least two hours pre-departure and make parking arrangements in advance, as the New T1 Project continues impacting traffic. Pro tip: Shuttle into SAN via the San Diego Flier from the Old Town Transit Center.
- If possible, avoid peak hours for security screenings — they are 5-7 a.m., 9 a.m.-1 p.m., and 7-9 p.m.
- Check your flight departure status before heading to SAN.
