Use Security Checkpoint B

Offers access to all concourses

If you’re travelling during the busier times of the day, head to Security Checkpoint B. It’s the middle so it’s equidistant to the other concourses and closer to the ticketing area.

Cozy wine bar with great food

Vino Volo

Vino Volo is a cozy wine bar with a nice variety of wines to enjoy and tasty food at reasonable prices. Quiet Jazz music in the background, comfy seats with a light and airy interior. Have something to nibble like chickpea and chorizo chili, tomato bisque soup, salmon rolls, prosciutto and melted brie with fig, green salad. Portions are rather to accompany the wine then a full course but delicious and beautifully presented.

The service is very friendly and knowledgeable and doesn't rush you out after you have finished your glass.
