Use your favorite airline to fly into Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport (Code - SJU) located in Carolina within the Metropolitan Area. This airport is 8 miles east of Old San Juan and usually takes around 15 minutes driving time. A second and third option is to fly into Mercedita Airport (PSE) in Ponce or Rafael Hernandez International Airport (BQN) in the west coast. However, these two airports are located at least 65 miles away from San Juan south and west respectively,  and therefore, logistically not as convenient.


Passports are not required for US Citizens traveling from the United States but a valid government issued ID will be required to board the plane as you clear TSA like in any other airport. Passports are required if you are flying from outside the United States. If this is your case, you may want to contact your local travel agent and/or American Embassy for details on the requirements to enter Puerto Rico. You can also search for the official entry requirements from the United States State Department. The following airlines currently provide service to Puerto Rico: (updated November 7, 2019)
