San Salvador



What is your home city/country? How long is the trip to post from there, with what connections?

Florida. Two hours from Miami. - Nov 22, 2017
El Salvador is a regional travel hub so there are a lot of direct flights to the United States. United, Delta and American Airlines all fly here, but the real advantage is Avianca (when not flying for the USG) with over 10 direct flights to the U.S. For whatever reason, however, El Salvador tends to be the most expensive country in Central America to fly to... - Jul 14, 2016
DC. Huge number of flights between El Salvador and the U.S. Twice daily to DC, 3-4 daily to Los Angeles, and regular connections to Houston, Miami, Dallas, Chicago, San Francisco, New York, and Toronto. Good connections to South America on Avianca or Copa as well. San Salvador is a hub for Avianca, so multiple daily flights everywhere in Central America. That said, prices tend to be steep for short trips, and it is often cheaper to fly to the U.S. (2-4 hours) than to Nicaragua (40 minutes). - Dec 8, 2015
Home base is complicated. To Newark, NJ, it is about 5-6 hour direct flight. To MSP it is a connection in Houston. Direct flights to Miami (lots). It can be a little expensive to fly out of here- more than I thought it would be considering how close we are to the U.S. - Jun 9, 2015
Midwest. About 7-8 hours. San Salvador is a very well connected airport with direct flights to LA, Houston, Dallas, Miami, Atlanta, New York, DC, and others. About a year ago you could find sales for around US$400, however now the minimum seems to be about US$700 to get anywhere. Regional flights are ridiculous at about US$300-400 for an hour long flight. Using miles however for these flights is pretty reasonable. - Mar 23, 2015
From the Southwest, I flew to Houston, then to San Salvador. 4 hours of flying and a very easy trip. - Oct 29, 2014
Washington DC - Jul 8, 2014
NYC, 8 hrs w/ connections in ATL (Delta), IAD (UA) or Miami (AA). - Apr 28, 2012
Washington, DC - Jul 15, 2011
There is one direct flight a day with Delta to and from Atlanta which takes about 3 1/3 hours. There are several other options with other carriers. - May 21, 2010
