They feature a large international symbol for accessibility and overhead digital signage for easy finding, a cut curb with tactile indicator walking strip, seating and a "How Can I Help?" phone with large print and braille signage offering a direct line to request mobility assistance upon arrival by dialing "3". We recommend passengers present directly at the airline counter.

Please use the most convenient parking building (for Terminal 1 this is normally the Express Parking building). Once you have parked, please proceed to the terminal to collect the arriving passenger.

If you are meeting an arriving passenger outside the terminal, please proceed to the Arrivals Level of the appropriate terminal and collect the passenger. Note that drivers are not to park or leave their vehicles unattended in this area.
