It houses both arrivals, departures and check-in areas. Check-in desks usually open three hours before the flight, and close 40 minutes before departure. With some airlines you can take the advantage of checking in online if you only have some carry-on luggage. Once you have obtained and printed off the boarding pass, you can proceed directly to the security check. In the terminal building you will also find car rental desks.
Car rental desks are located inside the terminal building; you only need to follow the 'car rental' signs. A parking lot with rental cars is located approximately 100 metres from the airport.
