San Diego Airport Closes Commuter Terminal
Earlier this month, San Diego International Airport closed its Commuter Terminal to commercial flights, relocating them to gates at its main terminals.
The move impacts flights operated by American Airlines and United Airlines to and from Los Angeles as well as all SeaPort Airlines flights. SeaPort is a regional airline with three bases: San Diego, Portland, and Memphis.
The airport said that the move would allow airlines to replace “smaller aircraft with larger, more efficient planes” and “streamline the passenger experience.”
United flights to Los Angeles operated by United Express have been relocated to Terminal 2 West, while American Airlines flights to Los Angeles operated by American Eagle moved to Terminal 2 East. All SeaPort flights will operate out of the west end of Terminal 1.
The move allows passengers to take advantage of the dining and shopping options offered in the larger terminals, things that were not available in the Commuter Terminal.
The Commuter Terminal will for the time being continue to house the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority’s administrative offices. The change went into effect June 4.
