In bad weather

2nd floor walkway

Walking over to the car park and rental car building on the arrivals level takes you outside. Especially in the fierce winter time or when it is pouring rain, use the covered walkway on the second floor/departures level. Simply take the lift upstairs at either end of the arrivals hall, walk across the street nice and warm and take the lift down to the rental car level.
