International transit

All International passengers, whether arriving or departing, are able to mix freely on the airside of security/immigration/customs. The International areas cover the satellite building (Gates C1-C37) and central hub, Level 4 in the Main building (Gates GG1-10 and H-10) and the Contact Pier.

If you are catching an onward flight at the same Gate grouping you can go straight to the gate on the same level.  G and H Gates are opposite arms of the Contact pier so you may move freely between them on the same level. The same applies to Gates on the 4 arms of the Satellite building.

If your new Gate requires you to move between the Satellite Pier (C Gates) and the Contact Pier (G & H Gates), catch the free aerotrain service which runs regularly between the two buildings. Gates C1-C6.
