WiFi, restaurants, shops, lounges, shuttle connections between terminals, ATMs, and foreign exchange counters are located throughout the airport. While the airport is easy to navigate, keep in mind that numerous security checks can mean actually getting to your gate takes longer than you might expect. Arrive at the airport three hours beforehand for international flights or two hours for domestic flights.
