Ivato's international and domestic terminal are located next to each within two inter-connected buildings. Scheduled domestic flights to most major Madagascar Airports are served by Air Madagascar. Additionally, various small airstrips exists around the country which are not served by Air Madagascar but which may be offer landing possibility using small private air charters, such as STA.

While several currency exchange services can be found in the international terminal, opposite the terminal and across the parking lot is Travel Exchange. Compared to other currency exchange services, major banks included, Travel Exchange consistently offered a slightly better exchange rate for Ariary in 2010 through 2012. The Aerocyber internet access point can be found next door.

A good restaurant can be found in both the domestic and international terminal but not in the flight departure area after heck-in. Alternatively, an outdoors garden restaurant can be found opposite the parking lot, close to the petrol station, and a restaurant and cafe directly at the petrol station. For those with three hours or more time between connecting flights, a visit to the nearby Croc Farm is recommended. There is even crocodile meat burgers on their menu!
