Ivato's international and domestic terminal are located next to each within two connecting buildings. Scheduled domestic flights to most major Madagascar Airports are served by Air Madagascar. Additionally, there are various small airstrips around the country which are not served by Air Madagascar but which may be possible to land on using a small private air charter, 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 with other currency exchange services, major banks included, Travel Exchange has consistently offered a slightly better exchange rate for Ariary in 2010 and 2011. There is a restaurant in both the domestic and international terminal which serves good food. Additionally, there is an outside restaurant opposite the parking lot, near the petrol station.
