If you plan to eat before your trip be sure and log on to the free wifi and check for coupons. It is on the homepage when you accept the terms for the wifi. Love the free wifi. Wish other had it!
Fly American Airlines or United. They both utilize Terminal B — which is very nice, has power outlets on every seat and has very nice curbside, check-in and TSA staff. And it's rarely crowded.
Free rapid phone charger stations right in front of A 7 gate and dunkin donuts . With free Ebooks and audiobooks . Excellent idea by San Antonio public library
Go out of your way if you have to towards gate A13 but the breakfast smoothie buenos Dias with Milk banana eggs almonds oats and honey is awesome !
One of my favorite airports with quick exits from the gates. The only drawback is having to rent a car and needing a shuttle to and from the car rental center. Hope they change that someday.
If you're parking in the garage, park to the right on any floor for American and Continental, for anything else park to your left. You'll be in-line with your terminal, saving you time.
If you park here & don't want to bring your parking ticket with you, just take a pic with your phone bc telling them you are on the 2 nd flr brings up the next ? of which garage😳
Some rental car companies might require a phone call for the shuttle. Also get there as early as possible when departing, even if it requires sitting at the bar for an extra hour. ;)
How can Southwest be so good and AirTran be so poor! By far the worse airline I've ever encountered - never had a good experience on Airtran! Every single flight has been delayed dating back to 2005!
For how small this airport is, it can get quite busy and it is an absolute disaster zone if you have the unpleasant task of dealing with delays. If you get stuck here, grab a drink at Gervin's!
One of the most inefficient airports I've experienced. Unfortunately, you will need to allow for PLENTY of time for security lines and baggage check-in- especially during the holidays.
Terminal B way nice post-construction. Power at each seat and wifi. Brighter and breezier. Needs more food, tho. Pro TSA, way mire military. Not shocking in a 5 base military city. Naked scan, btw...
6 am flights always have the longest security lines. Give yourself plenty of time if you want to make your flight. Love the Dunkin Donuts coffee in Terminal 1 too. ☺✈☕
Double check to make sure you have everything, TSA will watch you leave your stuff, and take your stuff out and let you leave it behind, they didn't even use the intercom to notify the flyer
Has nice 1st class and priority member security lines. FYI: the man behind me was not first class or a priority member, they sent him back through the correct line. *evil grin*
Small airport, good wifi connection and united lounge is convenient if you have long time connections, they also help to arrange your itinerary if your flight is delayed.
Apparently you can only have pointer qt sized bag of liquids..thought I'd have to choose between my Mary Kay and my mouthwash. I almost fainted. Shoved them all in one. TSA agent was kind. 1 bag!
Really small airport. Almost nothing to do. And when arriving on an international flight, you have to pickup your luggage before going to immigration! Forget about being the first to leave the plane.
There is a big difference with other airports like Houston's, for international travelers, the Customs officers come After you retrieve your luggage, so be careful and be patient.
TSA is courteous and helpful, lots of outlets for charging, free WiFi that works, and a San Antonio Public Library kiosk where you can charge your device while downloading a free book rental.
Make sure you download the coupons once you sign in to use the free wifi. You can get discounts at pretty much all the shops and restaurants in both terminals...
One of the worst upon arrival. Prepare to wait a very, very long time for your bags. The arrivals pick up lanes are always bogged down, so it will take an eternity to leave this place.
Have your ride pick you up on the upper level at Terminal 2. Use the escalator behind the USO in Baggage Claim or just walk straight out if you carried on.
The Carmel lattes at the green bean coffee place are pretty tasty. Maybe a little oversweet though. And there's a Starbucks hiding near the gates! I didn't see it :-/
I've read other, positive reviews of the TSA screeners here, but my experience was the worst I've had anywhere. Head TSA guy was extraordinarily rude not just to me, but to other screeners. Awful.
not a very helpful tsa staff. i had surgery on my arm yesterday and the staff did NOTHING to help me in any way after i asked for assistance. second time this has happened to me in the last 6 months.
The Alaska airlines ticketing counter doesn't open till 4:30pm. If you have luggage to check in then make sure you don't arrrive too early coz there's no place to wait or wander.
Very fast screening! Even at 11 am on a Friday, time from walking in the front door to check in to getting past screening was just 10-15 minutes. Kudos to the staff!
One of the 60+ airports supported by FlySmart app, which offers real-time flight data, concession listings and BingTM airport venue maps.
I suggest not using vending machines with a credit card. You will get a $5 charge until it registers that you only spent $1 which can take a week. Also soda vend downstairs terminal 1 wont take change
Simply Fantastic! This Int'l airport is not overcrowded, but surely it is well-organized. Also, going through security is pretty fast. Thumbs up!
Business travelers need lots of patience for this airport--this airport has the most amount of travelers that have no clue! (ie sitting by outlets and not using them!)
Okay, I should clarify- terminal A has no amenities, they are in the middle of renovations, terminal B is a short walk with tv's, sofas and a convenience store!
The ladies and gentlemen from information desk are very friendly and know about all the things! Free wifi! Conecte-se para avisar seus familiares! =)
I agree on the TSA screeners being fast and polite! I caught the TSA attendant in front of me dancing spontaneously and joined him for a mini dance party, we laughed and he wished me a good flight!!
Terminal B is superior to A in many ways. One reason is that the sink faucets in Terminal B have a full stream whereas A's faucets comes out at an Eco-friendly trickle.
The shopping is great for such a small airport. Skip mcdonalds and get a Starbucks sandwich. Security is tight but the personnel are the best in the US.
Plenty of electrical outlets...that don't work. Getting a flight out of Terminal B is almost impossible, flights are usually cancelled due to maintenance issues.
There is a Raising Cane's in the terminal. If you haven't had it, definitely try it. Started in Louisiana. Chicken known for their great sauce
Free wifi! And tons of electrical outlet plugs underneath all the lounge seats! What is this magical place? At LAX, I had to fight thru crowds to get a plug to charge my phone! SA airport, ftw!
USO is a great place to relax if you have a long layover....have an alternative plan if your flight is early and on weekends...USO might not open as scheduled..0600
TSA STINKS! If you have a cast they will harass you! And don't forget to dump out your water bottle because If you don't you have to go all the way back through security!
Love those TSA Screeners...funny, polite & thorough.. The joke of the day from one "Youtube, twitter & facebook all merged last night..the new co. Name is youtwitface"..;)
One of the most efficient TSA spots. Typically, even with high traffic, I have no problems with getting through check in to gate within 60 mins.
AA usually requires 40 min check in with bags...fast and clean AA terminal, sbarro, subway grill and Rosario's are restaurant options at this terminal...
If you travel via US Airways you will be in great shape, that's why I love US Air. But if you fly Southwest be prepared for a long line....
Most of the restaurants are just past security. Try some Raising Canes chicken strips. Delicious. Airport is a relatively short ride from downtown.
For being such a small airport, the bar options are pretty on point. The free wifi and abundance of outlets doesn't hurt either!
They have made a lot of great new additions to the airport, including some new restaurants and free wifi. Don't forget your tablet!
