Starting today, Seaborne’s main check-in counter will be located in Terminal B and arrival/departure gate will be located at Concourse B2A.

“We are thrilled to be making this move that will provide an enhanced travel experience for our customers,” said Seaborne Vice President of Airports Susana Castro. “The new location is far more convenient for both nonstop and connecting flights on Seaborne and for those connecting to our code share and interline partners, including American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and JetBlue Airways. We appreciate the opportunity to upgrade our facilities at SJU and would like to thank our codeshare partners, Aerostar, and of course the hardworking men and women of Seaborne Airlines for making this possible.”

Customers will benefit from the new central location that is more convenient and shorter walking distance between gates for travelers connecting to Seaborne’s interline and codeshare partners, as well as United, who are also located in or near Concourse B. In addition, the airport’s Terminal B completed a $130 million renovation in December 2014, which offers travelers a wide variety of restaurants and shopping options. Passengers arriving from international destinations will also experience the benefit of clearing immigrations and customs at the airport’s recently inaugurated customs facilities located in Terminal A.

“With our recent acquisition by Silver Airways, there are many more exciting things on the horizon for Seaborne, our valued guests, our crew members, and the Caribbean communities we serve,” added Castro.
