New automated check-in at SJO

Jump to last reply

Brand new this week! You'll see a bank of kiosks on the opposite side of the departure hall from the counters where you pay the departure tax. They're like the automated check-in kiosks you see in U.S. airports. Right now it's an option if you're flying American, US Airways, Delta, or Avianca. The kiosk reads your passport and issues you your boarding pass. One of the people standing there collects the slip that shows you paid your airport tax.

You still have to go to a dedicated line at your airline counter to drop off your bags if you're checking them, but it does seem to speed things up quite a bit.

I noticed the regular Delta lines were still pretty horrific (as only lines in Costa Rica can be) but they're on the side of terminal across from the tax counters, away from the new check-in kiosks. Maybe no one there saw the new system.
