international airport San Salvador

I am looking at a TACA flight that has a "short connection" - 45 min transfer time at SAL Comalapa Intl Airport. I wonder whether it's a large airport or is it easy to go from one gate to another.

Katzpaw: i'm guessing you mean your flight starts in Toronto, and what happens if you have a delay there.

Most airlines accommodate connecting flights only within reason, meaning that if your delay is short, and your connection time is long, you will have some wiggle room.

But if you are trying to make a very tight connection (under one hour) and your delay is very long, there is a chance you will just miss your connection. The airline will then likely try to get you on their next flight onto Ecuador.

For Joey, in my experience the US in the only country that makes you collect your baggage and go back through customs if you are coming from an international origin and moving onto a connecting flight that is domestic. i'd be shocked if that happened in el salvador, i agree your luggage will be checked through to your final destination.

I'd like to know how long the taxi ride is to San Salvador and La Libertad from the International Airport. Spending overnite to connect to Roatan. Don't want to spend a great deal of time in a taxi. Thanks
