What to Expect

While the terminals are connected by inter-terminal shuttle buses, Terminal D offers the most options for services, dining, shopping, and the most amenities for an extended stay.

The area across from Gates D12 and D13 has been cited as a good spot for sleeping due to its low nighttime lighting and relative quiet.
