Terminals 1 and 3 are not connected, so passengers are advised to check ahead for the correct terminal to avoid having to ride the shuttle bus between terminals. Shuttles run every 20 to 30 minutes on Level 0 of both Terminals 1 and 3.
Check-in and arrivals are on the lower level of Terminal 1 with ground transportation services in between the 2 areas.
The Terminal 1 Esplanade is on the upper level with a food court, shops, security checkpoints, and the airport tram station.
The A gate departure area has 16 gates numbered A3, A5, A7, A8, A10 to A12, A14, A15, and A17 to A23 with flights operated by Allegiant Air and Spirit Airlines. There is a small selection of shops and restaurants in the departure area with the majority pre-security in the terminal Esplanade.

To reach the B gates, pass through the A/B security checkpoint from Terminal 1 and turn left down the long corridor.
To connect to the A gates, take the walkway back towards the A/B checkpoint and turn left. To connect to the C gates, take the walkway to the right of Starbucks walking past the pharmacy and pet relief area.
To connect to the D or E gates, take the corridor as if walking to the C gates and take a left to the airport tram station where you can ride the blue line to the D gates with onward services to the E gates.
The C gate departure area has 18 gates numbered C1 to C5, C7 to C9, C11, C12, C14, C16, C19, and C21 to C25.
The concourse is quite long, and passengers that are flying from gates C1 to C22 can pass through the C/D security checkpoint and take the green line on the airport tram to the bottom end of the concourse.
Passengers flying from gates C23 to C25 may find it quicker to pass through the C annex checkpoint and walk along to their departure gate. Due to the size of the concourse, there are plenty of shops and restaurants, including The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Wendy’s, and Jamba Juice.
To connect to gate areas A or B, take the corridor at the north end of the concourse (to the left of Jamba Juice), or to reach the D or E gates, take the blue line on the airport tram.

|D gates to Terminal 1 / Terminal 1 to D gates|
|Terminal 3 to D gates / D gates to Terminal 3|
The airport shuttle bus runs every 20 to 30 minutes and transports passengers between terminals. Buses operate outside of the secure area, so passengers need to re-clear security on arrival at the connecting terminal.
Buses depart from Terminal 1 on Level 0, outside door exits 7 to 13, and Terminal 3 on Level 0 on both the west end to serve domestic travelers and the east end to serve international travelers.
Terminal 1’s A, B, and C gates are connected via pedestrian walkways.
The A and B gates are closely located just a short walk from each other, while the C gates are a bit further away. To reach the C gates, passengers need to walk through the C annex from the B gates or walk through the corridor next to the A/B security checkpoint.
