Starting from the 15th of March 2016 you'll need an eTA to transit or stay in Canada. This is true for nationals travelling on New Zealand, as well as Taiwanese passports. Quoting from the Canadian CIC website, below is the information for New Zealand citizens: and for Taiwanese citizens: You'll therefore need to secure an eTA to be able to ...

Staying Airside? Don't Need a Transit Visa You don't need a transit visa for UAE, as long as you stay inside the terminal building airside, and for up to 24 hours: TWOV (Transit Without Visa): Holders of confirmed onward tickets for a max. transit time of 24 hours. You'll need a visa if you wish to leave the terminal building and effectively ...

The Red MAX takes 44 minutes from Pioneer Square to the airport. Source: Trimet. So that's 1.5hrs. Security wait times you can predict from http://www.ifly.com/portland-international-airport/wait-times . Let's put that to 20 minutes. Actually you need to get off the plane and get out. I'd put that to another 20-30 minutes. We are at the 2.5hrs mark. You ...

You don't need to pick up your baggage or clear immigration and customs in SVO. Your airline will transfer your baggage to the next flight for you. When you check in at JFK, you will see that they will check the bags all the way through to TLL. And unlike the US, in most countries and in most circumstances it's unnecessary to clear immigration and customs to ...

I have never heard of a law or regulation that would require an airline to provide transit accommodations based on a scheduled connection (as opposed to a cancellation or other operational failure, for example). After all, you are the one choosing to accept the itinerary as given. But it is true that such accommodations are written into some fare rules on ...

I will argue against the comments: that's entirely doable. There is a good train connection from the airport to the city and it drops you off in one of the more interesting areas. See http://www.amsterdam.info/airport/ . While the train is quick and frequent, the lines in front of the ticket machines can be quite long, so I'd recommend buying the tickets ...

Yes with 9 hours, you have way enough time to get to Paris. If you arrive mid-day for instance, it will take you 1h to 1h30 to get out of the plane, get through the passport control, take your luggage with you and then reach Paris. If your plane arrives during busiest periods (morning between 7-10 AM and afternoon between 5-8 PM), then you might need more ...

I chose the sleeping pods to sleep for 5 hours! They were good but was disgusted that the price you pay doesn't include a blanket and a pillow! £8 for a blanket! We already paid £43 and thought we would get comfort. So if your thinking if the sleeping pod get a blanket and pillow off the plane because they put the air conditioning on so it's cold!!!!!

I ended up with in a similar situation in Abu Dhabi last year. An earlier delayed flight had resulted in me missing my connection. The airline wouldn't provide a hotel room because it was day time, but my body clock was saying it was the middle of the night and I didn't want to adjust to Gulf time. The airport is pretty spacious, or seemed so last May, ...

it's unclear if you're asking if you are allowed to (visa rules) or if it's worth doing / do you have enough time with ten hours titularly. Assuming you mean "is it worth doing..." If you are happy to just take a taxi both ways (and it's not a problematic traffic time of day), I'd say yeah just go straight in to Manhattan. I'd choose ahead of time a ...

You have plenty of time to enjoy the city. From the airport, take the train to the Central Station (travel time - maximum 30 minutes); if you take the express train you can get there in 15 minutes. The trick is (as others mentioned) to buy the ticket in advance although I have never had to wait long at the airport "mall" where the yellow ticket machines ...

Since France is part of the Schengen Area, you'll pass Schengen immigration when you land in Paris, and your flight to Prague will leave from the Schengen zone in the airport. Therefore, administratively speaking, you'll be in France, and you can wander around wherever you like. Time-wise, count on roughly one hour for immigration, one hour each way for ...

Since you have a visa yes you're allowed to leave an airport but you will have all your bags with you when you do.

I have similar tricks done several times, and the airlines are not happy about it, but it works perfectly fine. Be aware though that: If you check luggage, you might not be able to check it to an intermediate airport only (they might just not offer that - it is only good for exactly this trick) You lose all further legs on this ticket, without ...

I would say that you have a good probability to make it. Your flights are early in the morning so they are more likely to be on time and also the waiting time will be shorter in the checkpoints. I would suggest you the following : 1/ Make yourself known by the company. If you have booked a complete itinerary with the same company, they will make what they ...
