About Marin International

Having originally opened in May of 1955, the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) is a major hub of air transport both in Puerto Rico and the whole of the Caribbean. People travel through these terminals from around the world, sometimes leaving and spending their days visiting the Latin American island, but others continue on to smaller airports in the region that are unable to handle the jumbo jets that brought them here. It makes perfect sense, since the airport was built as a direct result of the island not having an airport large enough to accommodate such planes, and it has continued to grow and change as the technologies have.

Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport features two runways, one of which is a 9,783 foot long asphalt runway and the other is a 8,016 concrete runway. Inside, there are four terminals, a number of shops, a collection of restaurants, and several conference rooms. The airport also serves as a hub for several commercial airlines including Air Sunshine, Cape Air, and Jet Blue.
