The airport has a large area for check-in counters, arranged in groups by letters. Check one of the departures boards for information on where your airline's staff are waiting for you.

If you are hungry, the food court before the security checks has more options than what you'll find afterwards. For shoppers, however, it's better to pass through security before you start browsing.
