Please note that you will need to either catch a lift / elevator to floor 1 as when you land and exit the plane you will normally land and be on floor 0 .
If you struggle to find the “Free Set Down “ / “Express Set Down please ask for assistance at the Information desk
Please contact your driver when your at the drop off point (You can also contact him on Whatsapp) WE STRONGLY recommend you call him when your at the “Free Set Down “
