Airport Overview:
General: All 3 terminals are close together, but there is an inter-terminal shuttle bus. Rental Cars are all in the new Rent-a-Car center, reached by shuttle bus. Taxis, Limos & Shuttles depart from Terminals 1 and 2.
Terminal 1: Terminal 1 is very large. Level 0 (ground level) is for inter terminal transfer buses, public bus and hotel shuttles. Level 1 is for baggage claim and taxis. Level 2 is for ticketing and departures.
Terminal 3: Terminal 3 is now open. All international flights operate from Terminal 3.
Transfer Between Terminals: The terminals are not far apart, but it is awkward to walk, so there is an inter-terminal shuttle every 10 mins 24 hrs a day. At Terminal 1, the bus runs from the 0 level (one floor below the baggage claim area), across the road beneath the car park. At Terminal 3, the bus stops outside.
