SJU-Barcelona (Customs Question)

Hello,

Excited to be part of the forum. My son and I are flying from San Juan to Philadelphia and then catching a flight from Philadelphia to Barcelona. Do we need to clear customs in Philadelphia? We have 2 1/2 hours in between the flights (hopefully) and I was hoping that we can just go from whatever terminal we land in to the gate for the Barcelona flight. Thanks.

Since SJU is an American territory, there are no customs. Normal TSA screening may happen.

SJU-PHL is a domestic flight, so nothing else in regards to formalities, etc. Just hang out at the airport.

btw, are there a lot of good deals to Europe on US through Philly right now? I've been seeing that a TON of my friends on Facebook who travel to europe right now are going through PHL on US.
