Independent access roads serve departures on the first floor and arrivals on the ground level, covered by a rounded roof canopy. To make an even more visual impact, an open atrium next to the street entrance opens the ground floor of the terminal to the monumental space of the main hall, linking the start and end stages of the trip through the airport both visually and spatially.
The terminal has Arrivals on the ground level (with baggage claim, rental car counters, information, and other services); and hasDepartures on level 1 with check-in counters, on either side, security control in the center, followed by Immigration and adjacent VIP lounge, and access to the gates. Gates 1 through 8 are on the mezzanine level (each of the four jetways houses two gates).
