Terminal 1 was in operation at Svorgas International Airport, constructed in 2012. The Terminal building is reachable via a rapid train to Svorgas, whilst a light railway operates within it. There is a check-in area and security located here, after which passengers wait for their flight's gates to open in the departure's lounge, where they are surrounded by a duty-free area, with its own restaurants and bookshops, with food and literature from across Micras available. After this, passengers make their way to the light transit railway (Senyan: Ralya Tranzen lit). The light rail stops at the Terminal, Gates 1–20 (Zone A), Gates 21–40 (Zone B), and Gates 41–60 (Zone C). Passengers on private planes get off at Zone C and proceed to Zone D (Gates 61–75) on a special bus. After this, passengers wait for boarding, and once their plane starts boarding, they go on them. Zones A and B have jetways to the plane's main door, whilst at Zone C passengers must walk to the planes and up onto them via mobile stairs (lifts available for disabled passengers). Arriving at Terminal 1 is straight forwards, with passengers leaving their planes and onto shuttle busses, which take them to the arrivals sector, where there are eight passport zones; three for Senyan citizens and five for foreign visitors. After clearing passport control, passengers collect their luggage, from which they can either go to the railway station, go outside of the airport to the bus station and car collection, or alternatively go back to departures to make a connecting flight. Since the opening of Terminal 2, the terminal used exclusively by Senyan airlines and their subsidiaries.

The Airport has two runways. Runway 13/31 was constructed as part of the original airport in 2012 and can accommodate jumbo jets. A second runway, 9/27 was opened in 2013 to accommodate wide aircraft, which now means that all types of aircraft can land at the airport.
Svorgas International Airport has its own ambulance service, which contains a special Hospital on the grounds of the airport with 1,000 beds, in case of accidents or emergencies, and has 100 doctors and 2,500 nurses employed. The Svorgas International Airport Ambulance Service provides rapid access to this hospital, with use of 8 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter ambulances which can access the runways, 10 Honda ST1300P motorbike ambulances for in-terminal use, and two Eurocopter EC145 helicopters, which can be used to get patients from plane crashes outside of the area.
