Coming off the planes you come in the same halls as those going to the planes use. All of the airside that is 'non Schengen' is connected, if by a long(ish) walkway. That means that the first to arrive can go to the gate used by the second to arrive and meet there. Although at most of the airside space is open, there might be some parts of the airport still ...

If you watch out the window before the plane comes to stop you may see the stand number, for the pilots' convenience, which usually has some correspondence to the gate number. For instance stand 512 at Heathrow is served by gate number A12 in Terminal 5. But if you parked at a stand with no air bridge and were bussed to the terminal, at most airports you ...

There is no train station at Tegel airport. You best shot is to take the TXL Jet Express bus http://www.berlin-airport.de/en/travellers-txl/to-and-from/buses-and-trains/local-public-transport/ to the central station (Hauptbahnhof). There are plenty of train connections to Halle. Every two hours there is a non stop high speed train that does the trip in a ...

Assuming we're talking about a watch-style or pedometer-style fitness tracker, it should be no problem. Just take it off and put it through the X-ray, like you would with any other electronic device. In rare cases, it's possible the security agents will ask you to demonstrate that it's functioning, at which point you could show them the LCD display, but it's ...

As you never tagged the bag, Air Canada has zero chance of recovering it for you, short of assigning a staff member to physically search for it. But as they never officially received your bag, they have no responsibility in the matter. So answer to question 2 is no compensation. As you cleared through US immigration, then dropped your bag, it is most ...

If you intend to carry them in the plane as hand luggage, I guess it won't make it as it is beyond the 100 ml limit. But if you put it in your checked-in luggage, assuming those can't cause fire or damage to the plane, you should be ok. You can check with the airline to be 100% sure.

I believe that since the central security changes last year, Willeke's answer is most likely incorrect for you (although as I've not been on an inbound flight from an "insecure" country since June 2015, when this all changed, I am happy to be corrected by someone with first-hand experience). Schiphol airport describes the changes in detail, but in summary: ...

Because you're arriving from outside the Schengen area and going to a destination outside the Schengen area, yes, there will be a separate way for transit passengers. This is specifically so they can reach their outbound flights without passing through passport control. If you are authorized, that is, if you have or do not need a visa to enter Germany, and ...

I am trying to find what this question is a duplicate of but I can't find any. Perhaps others found this self evident and haven't asked. Anyways, since you are flying on a single ticket within a single country your luggage goes through to the end. International is different but that definitely has duplicates.

It's certainly not the case that you weren't told the gate number because of your nationality. After all, there will have been many different nationalities on the plane so they could hardly tell some people the gate number but not the others. The simple reason is that you weren't told the gate number because you don't need to know it. You didn't notice ...

If your baggage had no tag visible on it, it would not likely be handled by any airline, but be turned over to the airport's lost and found. You can call or email them directly. Any items found in our terminal buildings are turned into the Customer and Terminal Services department for the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) and may be reached at ...

If you were storing a few bags for one day, or one bag for a few days, you might have more options. To leave a few bags for a few days, however, you will need to do some legwork. The first place I would check would be with your hotel in San Francisco. Some hotels are more willing to do this than others, and storage conditions may vary widely— a locked room ...

You will quite possibly need a great many more documents than just your passport. Canada is quite strict about people with criminal records, and in particular, drunk driving is a federal offense under Canadian Law. Moreover, you will necessarily need to pass Canadian Customs to get from the airport to the cruise ship terminal; as far as I know, there's no ...

You can wait in the Arrivals area after customs if you like, although obviously it won't be comfortable. You can also wait around in the Schegen departure lounge, if you are arriving on KLM, and then exit out to meet them when they arrive. The shops and restaurants will be open until a little after midnight. If you are using a low cost carrier I believe they ...

The lines at Ben Gurion Airport are short, some of the shortest in the world for an airport of this size (there's a reason for this—long lines are bad for security). Check-in lines can take about 40 minutes tops (less if your flight leaves soon), and passport control usually takes no more than 5 minutes (maybe 15 at peak times, but I have never seen more ...

Sleeping in Schiphol is allowed, but there is very little opportunity to do so on the Plaza side, but I've seen people put sleeping bags and mattresses down there, so there's always that. There are more than enough benches beyond customs. If you can get to this side, you could also choose one of Schiphol's hotels: Hotel Mercure or Yotel. If your flights ...

The answer is the same either way, for two reasons: The UK and Ireland share a Common Travel Area, similar to but entirely separate from Schengen. If you arrive in either country, bound for the other, you clear immigration in the first country of arrival. In your case, you will clear immigration in Dublin, regardless of which airline you use or whether you ...

Taxation and hand luggage rules are completely unrelated to each other. You should be able to take your laptop as cabin luggage, either in your bag - for the cheapest airlines - or next to your bag - for legacy airlines, which probably includes most transatlantic flights. The latter is what's usually called "personal item". But taking the laptop as a ...

According to the website of the Brazilian Consulate-General in Washington: There is no need for a visa if the traveler arrives in Brazil on a flight, remains in the international transit area, without passing through immigration control, and departs on another flight from the same airport. Note, however, that this may be a problem if you have baggage ...

If you are comfortable with trains, you can make the trip in 90-120 minutes, depending on your time of departure. This comes down to whether you check or carry-on, your facility in navigating the airport/rail station, and your tolerance for OJ Simpson-like sprints to the departure gates. Personally, I'd plan more time between flights. Here is a link for ...

The waiting time in TLV is surprisingly short and procedures are fast . That being said - if you are of any "suspicious" Characteristics - you will need more time . Two hours should be enough . Interestingly enough , The last Time I have visited there , I showed up three hours before , but the Check-in ( and Security ) for my Flight was only Two hours ...

According to the Belarusian Airlines website: Is the transit visa needed? According to the information, obtained from National airport Minsk border guard service: Those passengers, who travel in transit through Minsk, do not need the Belarusian transit visa, if the following conditions are fulfilled: passengers have a valid passport and ...
