The Fiesta Inn Resort has a complimentary shuttle to/from Sky Harbor International Airport. Upon arriving, you may call for the shuttle by dialing 480.967.1441. The shuttle will arrive within 30 minutes. Since there are many participants flying in on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, it is likely that your wait time then will be significantly less than 30 minutes. The hotel asks that you retrieve your bags prior to calling for the shuttle. After calling for the shuttle, you can proceed to the blue diamond pick up point outside each terminal at Sky Harbor airport. Below is a list of airlines in each terminal and the corresponding blue diamond location.

Terminal 2 (Continental, Air Canada, United, U.S. Airways) has the blue diamond area located outside the north exit just past baggage claim and ticketing.

Terminal 3 (American, Delta, Frontier, Northwest) has a blue diamond area outside either side of baggage claim.

Terminal 4 (American West, Southwest, and international carriers) also have a blue diamond area outside each side of baggage claim. Usually, the blue diamond area is outside and across the passenger loading/unloading area.

For a detailed map of each blue diamond location and additional carrier locations not listed in this email, please visit the airport website here.
Just click on the appropriate terminal for larger view.

If you choose not to wait for the shuttle, taxi service is also available outside baggage claim areas. Please keep in mind that the taxi fare will be at your own expense and is not reimbursable through the conference. A typical taxi fare from the airport to the Fiesta Inn averages about $20 including tip.
