It is worth noting that the airport is very big and your check in point and gate can be quite far apart (up to a 30 minute walk) so leave plenty of time navigate through the airport.
You can pickup a taxi outside the airport 24 hours a day. They can be expensive so it is best to define a fare price with the driver before you get in.
