Terminal configurations

  • Terminal A, consists of a building comprising check-in facilities, baggage claiming, shopping areas, restaurants, customs, airport and airline offices, as many other services, while the satellite building connected via underground tunnels comprises all the VIP and waiting lounges, migration among other services as well as obviously the boarding gates. The Satellite building, is divided into two concourses, North Concourse for domestic flights (Gates A1-A15), while South Concourse comprises all the international flights that operate into the airport (Gates B3-B8). Several flights are delayed day by day due to the lack of free contact and even remote positions, as the ones capable of handling large aircraft such as the Boeing 767. Nevertheless, Terminal C and Terminal B work as a relief system for this terminal. There are future plans to remodel and expand the Satellite building, adding at least 4 new jetways and 3 remote positions.
