About the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport

Outfitted with four terminals, conference rooms, a food court, a shopping center, and a humongous parking garage, the major point of entry for most people flying to Puerto Rico is the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU). It has an asphalt runway measuring 9,783 feet long and an additional concrete runway that measures 8,016 feet long, which means it has accommodations to welcome international jumbo jet, a fact that not every airport in the Caribbean can claim. Because of this, Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport is a major hub for air transportation in the region. The airport original opened in 1955 and has continued to grow and change with the times ever since.
