With an extra half hour to spare at the San Juan airport on Friday afternoon before my flight back to New York I took the opportunity to wander over to the new Terminal A and check it out. The terminal is opening very soon and will house JetBlue‘s operations at the airport; it is a MAJOR upgrade from the existing facilities from what I could see.
OK, to be fair, I didn’t actually get inside and there wasn’t a ton to see. Still, the bits that I did catch were quite nice.
High ceilings, big windows and plenty of gates. It is everything a growing airline could want from a new terminal. Of course, it remains to be seen what facilities are available inside the terminal, and it seemed that the gates were split into at least two groups (I am not sure if they connect behind security or not; I would assume so). But from the bits I did see, it looks like quite an improvement from the current facilities.

When is it scheduled to open?
I haven’t heard a formal date yet. I’ve been trying to get information on that but no success yet.
Judging from the pictures, “peek” is the operative word. 😉
Jetblue moved to Terminal A in SJU on June 28th 2012.
They had the official “grand opening today” (covered here) but the terminal went into service a couple weeks ago. Call it a soft opening, I suppose.
