Los Cabos International Airport (IATA: SJD, ICAO: MMSD) is the seventh busiest airport in Mexico, located at San José del Cabo, Baja California Sur, Mexico. The airport serves Los Cabos area: San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. This airport has three terminals with 4 concourses. Terminal 1 serves both domestic and international operations for various air carriers while Terminal 3 services Alaska Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines and other seasonal international carriers. From September 2011 until January 2012, the airport temporarily gained nonstop service to Asia with flights to Shanghai, China.
In 2012, the airport handled 3,018,500 passengers, representing a 7.5% increase over 2011. It has become the most important airport in the state of Baja California Sur. Nevertheless, the infrastructure of the airport is already insufficient compared to the increasing demand, causing the lack of available positions for aircraft during peak-hours, as in many other airports in the country.
On May 24, 2011, Los Cabos International Airport became the first Mexican airport to use the U.S.-Mexico pre-clearance.
Terminal 1 operates both domestic and international flights.
Terminal 2 operates international flights only and has 10 gates.
Terminal 3 is presently not being used during current phase of Terminal 4 construction. Flights have been moved back to Terminal 1 or 2.
Terminal 4 is under construction and expected to open in latter 2013. When the terminal is completed Terminal 3 will be connected to it.
