The Edward H. McNamara Terminal opened in 2002 and was formerly known as the Northwest WorldGateway. It replaced the Davey Terminal. McNamara Terminal has three concourses and they are A, B and C. The connection between Concourse A and Concourses B and C is illuminated by the Light Tunnel, which has various light patterns along the tunnel. While Concourse A received the international flights and large planes, Concourses B and C receive medium to smaller planes. The North Terminal, known to some as Concourse D, opened in 2006. It has fewer gates compared to the gates at McNamara Terminal.

The Express Tram, which is like a train, enables travelers to get from one end of Concourse A to the other. It has three stops that folks can get on and off at.
