The passenger terminal complex at Portland International Airport consists of an integrated terminal with 5 Concourses - together forming an ‘H’ layout: Ticketing (upper level) and Baggage Claim (lower level) are in the center, while the five in-line concourses are divided into a North Terminal with Concourses D & E, and a South Terminal with Concourses A, B & C.
Between North & South Terminals is the Concourse Connector (at gate D1 North & gate C1 South) - allowing passengers who cleared security to move between the concourses without further screening. Moving sidewalks are between concourses. The ticketing level has two connectors to the rental car facility & parking garage.
Getting around at PDX: A Concourse connector is between gate areas D1 and C2 and provides easy connection between North and South Concourses in the secured areas. Moving sidewalks provide fast access between concourses.The North Lobby between Concourses D & E and the South Lobby between Concourses A/B and C are accessible from the Oregon Market in the center of the terminal, which offers above-average shopping and eating options.
International Arrivals at Concourse D (except those who cleared US Customs at participating airports) are directed to passport control, get their bags at baggage claim, go through customs, the cashier, and thereafter will be directed to the shuttle bus taking a few minutes and arriving on the baggage claim level, opposite carousel 10. If connecting to another flight , take the stairway up to Concourse D, then - depending on where your next flight will depart from - proceed to either D or E gates (at right), or take the Concourse Connector near gate D1 to B & A gates (at left) or C gates (at right). Global Entry, TSA Pre-Check lane and APCs (automated passport control) kiosks will shorten the arrivals process.
Paging / Meet & Greet: (a) Audio & visual paging is available throughout the terminal, just dial 0 on any white paging phone. Customer Service Paging Center: tel. 503.460.4040 or 1.877.PDX.INF0. (b) The best place to meet your arriving passenger is on the baggage claim level, opposite carousel 10.
NOTE: Entrance and exit lanes to the concourses are no longer side-by-side. The new exit lane control system maximizes the flow of passenges thrugh the terminal. They detect anyone trying to enter the concourse thorugh the exit lane, and automatically close doors & alert police.
TERMINAL DETAILS: (Ongoing work: New shops & restaurants continue to be added until 2017. )
The Main passenger terminal houses on the ticketing level three airline ticketing areas: to the right for Delta, Virgin America & American; to the left for Spirit, Hawaiian & Alaska, and in the center for all other airlines - with security checkpoints near right & left ticketing. Behind the center ticketing desks are shops & restaurans, and access to the Conference center.
- Recently completed: New carpeting, Federal Inspection Station upgrades with new security access control system; relocation & expansion of north & south security checkpoint exit lanes; and new passenger waiting areas; and two new canopies now keep passengers dry when boarding buses from Federal Inspection Station to baggage claim.
- NOTE: Currently the Airport's effort is to balance the passenger number between north & south sides. Alaska Air Group & Southwest Airlines - the two largest carriers with two-thirds of total PDX passengers - are occupying the south side of the terminal. Therefore, Alaska Air Group will switch concourses from current Concourses A, B, C to Concourse E, while United Airlines will switch from Concourse E to Concoursse C. Concourse E will be extended, starting Fall 2016 - to be completed late 2017.
