New arrival/transfer procedures at SJO starting in November

Jump to last reply

If you've flown in or out of San Jose lately, you've noticed some construction going on at some of the gates. A system is going into place where arriving and departing passengers will be separated by a glass barrier. When you fly in, you won't mix with people who are waiting for their flights out. You'll be shunted directly to immigration. If you're connecting to another flight without entering Costa Rica, you'll still be separated from departing passengers. You'll go to a security checkpoint with x-ray and metal detector and then will be let into the gate area.

The new system is supposed to be ready by November.

A couple of photos from La Nación:
