    You'll have to show ur passport and flight reservation to go in, then u can check in. If you're given a tag at check in, it's for ur hand bag. You'll hand it when u pass security, and pick it up later

    If you have a domestic transit, follow the signs to Domestic Terminal and make sure you do not miss the elevator on the right that take you a level up to the Domestic terminal.

    If u have a long/late night transit (6+ hours), contact the passenger information desk. They have nearby hotels in all budgets with free pick-n-drop facility. Tried, tested and recommended.

    At domestic departures (Jet/AI/Spice), go up to the upper level security check, even if your gate is on the ground level. Much quicker and you can then take an elevator back the ground level.

    Clean, big airport. You can go to the city by bus 18A or 18B(bus stand outside the airport). Or train - turn right and go for 200 metres

    There is no currency exchange agency once you get past security. And they don't let you out once you go through. So make sure you get your currency exchanged BEFORE entering the security check.
