Connections

Passengers can easily walk throughout our three concourses without having to go back through security by using the terminal connectors. Each of the connectors has a moving walkway for ease of movement.

While Memphis International Airport is one of the fastest connection airports in the country, we strongly recommend you leave plenty of time between your connecting flights. This additional time will give you the opportunity to relax and enjoy Memphis International Airport’s many Memphis-centric shops, restaurants and amenities.
