Getting around the airport

Three terminals in a ring shape

The Kansas City International Airport lies 24km northwest of Kansas City, Missouri. The airport's largest carriers are Southwest Airlines and Delta Air Lines, both having many daily flights in Terminal B. It consists of three ring-shaped terminals. The special shape was part of a concept to reduce walking distances from arriving cars to the airplane. In the centre of each ring are parking lots.

  • Terminal A: Gates A1-A30 (not in use since 2014)
  • Terminal B: Gates B31-B60
  • Terminal C: Gates C61-C90 (undergoing renovations to handle international flights)

Travelling between terminals

There are shuttle bus connections running between the terminals. The RED BUS line travels between terminals and parking lots and leaves approximately every 15 minutes. Bus stops are located outside each terminal building and are marked with the sign "Red Inter-Terminal Connection".
