Place your keys in the red key box with the corresponding lane number and then take the bus to your terminal. The bus leaves from the Reception area and calls at both terminals.

If you're at the North Terminal, turn right out of the terminal and follow signs for buses. Wait at bus stop 6 or 7. After you've collected your keys from reception, drive to the exit and scan the bar code attached to your keys at the exit barrier to get out.
