Reply To: BA First to SJC and then transfer to San Francisco

Back to Forum


I’ve flown this route a number of times in the last year in First and never been any delay at SJC passport control. First off the plane and first in line for passport control. No other flights arriving at this time (unless this has changed recently) so you should be through fast.

If you are using a car service from San Francisco back to SJC, note that 101 south can be like a car park between 4pm and 6pm so allow plenty of time. I’ve done it in 75 mins but once took nearly 3 hours and made it just in time for BA flight. The Third party lounge at SJC is not bad so not a disaster if you arrive early and have to kill time!
