Airports & Airlines

Puerto Rico is the most accessible island in the Caribbean. It has air service from most major American hubs and all the major airlines serve San Juan. There is very limited international service to other airports in Puerto Rico, although you can fly to the US Virgin Islands from Culebra and Vieques.

San Juan is a hub for Caribbean flights. The growing regional carrier, Seaborne Airlines (www.seaborneairlines.com), relocated its main operations to San Juan in 2014.

Australia & New Zealand

Qantas flies to Los Angeles from Sydney, Melbourne (via Sydney or Auckland) and Cairns. United flies to San Francisco from Sydney and Auckland (via Sydney), and also flies to Los Angeles. Connecting flights to San Juan are available. New Zealanders might want to look at www.roundtheworldflights.com, which has lists of carriers from all over the place who fly to Puerto Rico via Wellington.


Airfares to Caribbean destinations such as Puerto Rico vary tremendously depending on the season you travel, the day of the week you fly, the length of your stay and the flexibility the ticket allows for flight changes and refunds. Still, nothing determines fares more than demand, and when things are slow, regardless of the season, airlines will lower their fares to fill empty seats.

During the holidays, travelers to Puerto Rico will probably find it difficult to get the flights and fares they want unless they plan – and purchase tickets – well in advance. Holiday times include Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Easter, Memorial Day, Labor Day and Thanksgiving.


Most Asian countries offer fairly competitive airfare deals, with Bangkok, Singapore and Hong Kong being the best places to shop around for discount tickets. Hong Kong’s travel market can be unpredictable, but some excellent bargains are available if you are lucky.

Caribbean & Latin America

Many flights to San Juan from Central and South America are routed through Miami, Houston or New York. A few countries’ international flag carriers fly directly to San Juan from Latin American cities.

Puerto Rico is linked to Antigua, Barbados, Haiti and Jamaica through the following airlines:

UK & Continental Europe

Though London is the travel-discount capital of Europe, there are several other cities where you will find a range of good deals. Generally, there is not much variation in airfare prices from European cities.

USA & Canada

The most popular routes to Puerto Rico from the US are via New York and Miami, but direct flights from about a dozen other cities in the continental US also serve the island. Some carriers now offer continued service through San Juan to Ponce and Aguadilla, or they fly directly into Aguadilla’s airport. Almost all major carriers fly to Puerto Rico; jetBlue is currently the most popular and economical option. Canadian discount air-ticket sellers are also known as consolidators, and their airfares tend to be about 10% higher than those sold in the USA.
