Some Do's and Don'ts
- Check all your belongings before leaving the Airport carousel area. If you find anything missing or suspicious, please proceed to the luggage counter and report or enquire. Do this before you leave the airport.
- Carry your own bags or cart them using those Thinga-majics that have wheels. Do NOT accept offers to carry your bags. Oh... and if you feel the urge to use your tablet, do not put it on the Thinga-majic on wheels, once forgotten, it will be almost impossible to locate your tablet again.
- If you get lost in the Airport for some reason or another proceed to the nearest information counter. There should be one located next to the main terminal exits for both Domestic and International sections of the Airport.
