Checking In With Your Airline

Airline check-in occurs outside at the airline counters. You will need to obtain your boarding pass and check in any of your large luggage here. 

Customs

Once you have obtained your boarding pass you and your luggage will go through Customs. The Customs Officer will likely ask you a few questions - about the purpose of your visit and if you are bringing any items home with you. 

 

TSA

After you have cleared customs, you will drop off your checked luggage with TSA so that it can go through screening. You will then proceed through TSA screening. They do have Pre-Check at the airport, as well as the regular TSA screening line. 

 

Once you have made it through TSA screening, then you are in the waiting area. The waiting area contains a few shops - such as a perfume shop, a coffee shop, a duty-free store, a gift store and two restaurants. You will remain in this area until your flight boards. 

We recommend that you arrive at the airport 3 hours prior to your scheduled departure time
