Terminal A serves Delta and Southwest Airlines. Arrivals are on Level 1, and Departures are on Level 2. This terminal has two sections; the first has all the ticketing and security checkpoints. A long corridor leads to the satellite section, which has shops, restaurants, the Delta Sky Club and airline gates.

Terminal B is U-shaped with a parking garage in the center of the U. Air Canada, American Airlines and US Airways are some of the airlines using this terminal. The two main sections, which each have ticket counters, security stations and amenities, are connected by corridors leading to the gates.

Terminal C is the largest and is V-shaped, and airline gates are along the sides and ends of the V. The ticket counters, security and other services are in a building on the bottom of the V. Alaska Airlines, Cape Air, JetBlue and Sun Country Airlines fly out of here.

Terminal E is the international terminal, used by airlines such as Aer Lingus, Aeromexico, Air France and Japan Airlines. It has its own parking lot just across from passenger pick-up and drop-off. The Customs and Immigration section is on Level 1, with exits leading directly into the transportation hub.
