The spectacular passenger terminal at Carrasco Airport, opened in 2009 - appearing like a giant UFO - is able to handle 4 million passengers a year, with four jetways to the boarding gates, accessible from the mezzanine level (entrepiso). Independent access roads serve departures on the first levell 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 Arrivals level on the ground floor houses baggage claim, rental car counters, information, and other services;
The Departures level houses check-in counters to the East & West of the public hall - Check-in counters for American, TAM, GOL & Aerolineas Argentinas are at the East side; and check-in counters for Sol + Pluna are at the West Side. After checking in, go through Security control, & Immigration and arrive at the Concourse center with duty-free shops - with access to east gates 5 to 8 and west gates 4 to 1.
