International Arrivals Facility



The new International Arrivals facility at San Diego International Airport (SAN) features six international gates, the latest technologies from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, an expanded baggage claim and passenger wait area, and two public artworks.


SAN welcomes more than 400,000 international arriving passengers annually. That number will continue to grow as more overseas nonstop flights are added. The new facility allows the airport to accommodate this increase in international passengers.

The new, 130,000 square-foot International Arrivals facility completed construction in June 2018. 

As of March 2018, SAN offers nonstop flights to and from six countries – Japan, Germany, Switzerland, the U.K., Mexico and Canada.  

The total cost of the project is estimated at $229.4 million. The new facility will serve these airlines: British Airways, Japan Airlines, Lufthansa, Alaska Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and Spirit Airlines.

Images of the new facility are available by visiting the airport's Flickr site.
