You can access directly from the main entrance. This space is located at your left and it is signposted differently. In this area you can choose if you want to use the check-in counter or the automatic check-in machine.

The boarding gates are distributed over several areas, classified as follows:

H1-H30 (floor 1, area H), J40-J59 (floor 1, area J), K69-K98 (floor 1, area E), M22-M51 (floor 0, area M), R1-R18 (floor 1, area R), S23-S48 (floor 1, area S), and U55-U74 (floor 1, area U).
