Travel Tips

Security-related tips from the TSA

Whether traveling through SAN on business or taking that much needed vacation, TSA offers several important tips to help facilitate your experience through the security screening process.


Airline Specific Parking Options

During construction of the Parking Plaza, parking in the Terminal 2 Lot will be available via McCain Rd.

Hours of Operation

San Diego International Airport is open twenty-four hours a day; however, departures only occur without penalty between 6:30 a.m. and 11:30 p.m. Each airline has its own operating hours, but typically ticket counters are staffed by 4:30 a.m. for check-in. For specific check-in information, please contact the airline you are flying directly. To contact the Airport or Airport Authority, please call 619.400.2404.

Security Assistance

Travelers who require special assistance should contact airlines ahead of time to request assistance in reaching airline-boarding gates. San Diego International Airport and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) have implemented increased security for all airline passengers. These heightened security measures may result in longer waiting times to pass through security checkpoints.

Baggage Check and Claim

Baggage claim carousels are centrally located in each terminal. For assistance, contact the appropriate baggage claim office or airline ticket counter.

Eateries & Shops

The airport offers a variety of locally-owned and nationally known eateries and an exciting mix of shopping choices, including San Diego-based shops and national brand favorites. For information about operating hours and offerings, please visit our SHOP DINE & RELAX pages.
