  • There will be a "sweeper" van which will pick up people who arrive after 10:30pm.
We will have greeters at the Albuquerque airport. PLEASE CONTACT A GREETER WHEN YOU ARRIVE. The greeter will direct you where to go when the buses arrive and can assist you in other ways (e.g., look after your luggage while you go get something to eat). The greeter has a list of people that need to be picked up, if you arrange other transportation, please tell the greeter. The greeter will be on the baggage claim level, near the escalators. Look for an NRAO sign. Eric Greisen will be the primary greeter at the airport. His cellphone number is 575-418-5856.
