From the simple to the extraordinary, San Jose International is beautiful inside and out. This especially comes through the staff’s hard work, which goes above and beyond, whether it be through the Airport Information Booth near Baggage Claim B or Terminal A’s multi-lingual Currency Exchange. There’s also a special Global Entry area for International Arrivals as well as a slue of typical services scattered across the facility, including courtesy phones, paging stations, and telecommunications devices for the deaf.
