- To transfer from Terminal to Terminal - take the frequent and free Airport shuttle bus. From Terminal A it departs outside the baggage claim area; at Terminal B it departs at its Center island, and its East Commercial Curb. However, you can walk between the terminals via Level 3 of the parking garage and follow signs, which can take 20-45 mins, depending on how fast you walk.
- International arrivals are being processed in a separate building, part of Terminal B. They will go through passport control, pick up bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in their bags before proceeding to the connecting flight.
- Priority security lanes at both terminals A & B are now available at their respective security checkpoints - as each airline has its own regulations, contact your airline for details. TSA Pre-check is available in both terminals.
