    While not as richly featured as SFO, SJC offers ample parking, great central South Bay location and loads of domestic and international flights. When booking, price compare this, SFO and OAK!

    If your toddler needs some entertainment check out the audio-kinetic rolling ball sculpture at gate 2. Absolutely mesmerizing! Save the books, movies, and treats for the plane and take them here.

    Nicer, easier, faster and overall cheaper alternative to the always delayed and somewhat crowded SFO. If you are flying into Silicon Valley my choice would be flying into SJC.

    Very nice airport. They did expansion and upgrades. Very clean, fast service at Southwest ticket counter and pretty good security line wait times.

    If you're arriving and really have to go, but the bathrooms are packed, just take a few more steps and take the escalator down to baggage claim. Turn right and find a less crowded restroom. :-) whew!

    Skip by Starbucks and Peet's - there's an Illy espresso cafe down near gate 20. Best coffee you'll ever get at an airport. PRO-TIP: they keep a tip jar just behind the counter. :)

    San Jose Int'l Airport (SJC) is located in the heart of Silicon Valley, the center of technology innovation. San Jose is the 10th largest city in the U.S.

    If you're trying to get into town for free take Bus 10 to 1st street. You'll find the stop at the airport under 8. Head Eastbound to the Metro.

    Go to the diner right beside Starbucks because Starbucks doesn't have chairs and tables. While you are at it also try their breakfast if you are there before 10:00 AM

    My favorite airport and one of the newest airport terminal architectural designs in the US. Best part is the seats have plugs and USB ports to charge your gadgets.

    This is the best airport in the Bay Area! They have free WiFi, it's never crowded, the staff is friendly, and even the TSA is courteous. This is the best airport, hands-down.

    Very convenient airport due to its size and great alternative to SFO. Enjoy the Dreamliner when flying from or to London on BA. Immigration lines can get long though.

    Really easy to get in and out. If the line is massive in terminal B, then go to A and walk over. It can be faster. Especially in the mornings.

    Always check SJC (and OAK) when flying into and out of the Bay Area. Better than SFO for many routes

    Invest in TSA Pre ✅ for $85. You'll speed through the security line in 5 minutes, get to leave your shoes on and your laptop in your bag

    Modern & efficient airport alternative to SFO. A smaller version of American Express Lounge opened, but guests are limited to one free guest only. Two lounges welcome Priority Pass.

    SJC is one long strip of gates that are on only one side. It can be a long walk to get to and from your gate. Not great. People with mobility issues should be prepared. The area has outgrown SJC.

    Be forewarned! SJC is still under construction, tho looking beautiful & like a real airport. The walk from gate to baggage claim/exit is a HAUL! It'll feel like you're walking for miles. Good cardio!

    Looks nice and fancy but completely dysfunctional. Most restaurants out of business. Always out of everything. Starbucks runs out of coffee. Coffee! CC and cash register systems constantly go down.
