If you're on a budget: 24h city transportation ticket is really cheaper than buy short-tern tickets each time. Check foursquare, soup can be found in ~5zl, quite good lunch in 15zl if not on budget - city taxi must have price displayed at the door, so you'll know what you'll have to pay before you get that car. Check weather forecast - it's almost cold ...

There is a train station within walking distance of the terminal, if you're going to take the train into the city, but last time I was there it was not easy to find: the signage was not very clear, basically. If you start walking along the airport access road you've gone too far. Other than this I think it is very simple and easy. WAW is a good airport.

It's worth considering. There is no such thing as perfectly "safe" in this regard, only varying levels of risk. Typically the airline will allow enough time that the transfer can be made, including luggage, etc, if the first flight arrives on time and everything goes as planned. But it's not a guarantee. If the first flight is delayed for any reason (which ...

There is no absolute answer to this question. In theory, the airline does not like missed connections because they have to find some way to re-accommodate you to your final destination, so they have every incentive not to schedule connections that are too tight to make. In practice, there are lots of missed connections every day, especially when the first ...

Note: Vienna is not very efficient airport, and there can be long walks involved between areas since it is badly planned and security can take some time if you are unlucky. As much as people here advise for the train to get to the city, If you want to go to Schönbrunn you may consider (budget allowing) just grabbing a pre-booked car transfer immediately, ...

I too advise against Schönbrunn. I lived in central Vienna for a little while and feel you would be stressing yourself to go there in such limited time. And in any case it is less engaging than the city centre, being yet another (albeit an excellent example) grand palace.

I would advise against Schloss Schönbrunn, it is in the West of the City, while the airport is in the east. It is quite far away from most of the other sights which are in the City. So i would suggest a quick tour round St. Stephan, Hofburg, Opera and maybe Museumsquartier. Another data point regarding the CAT (City Aiport Train), Taking a Taxi is still ...

The City Airport Train will take you (close to) the center in just 16 minutes. It is however a lot more expensive than the regular train going the same way in just 10 or so minutes more. Each of the two trains runs every 20-30 minutes, so the fastest option depends on when exactly you arrive at the train station. From the terminal Wien Mitte-Landstraße you ...

I have transited through vienna around 15 times and happy to give you some tips on what to see during your 6 hour layoff. St.Stephens Platz church (start here. Its the city centre walk around for 2h you will see viennese operas, palace and shopping streets around. If you like cakes be sure to taste Sacher torta (shop not far from main opera) Schonbrunn ...

Yes. For example, only 16 minutes to central Vienna, so sightseeing in that interval is viable but what to see there seems to be a matter of opinion so off topic here.

No, there is no need to pass through immigration control in this circumstance. Simply follow the purple signs to the new terminal. The inter-terminal bus system is before immigration control.

Normally, Americans do not require a visa of any sort to visit or transit the UK. However, some Americans are unable to qualify because of an unfavourable history. Others experience discomfort and do not believe they will be able to qualify because of their personal circumstances. Some have been visiting the UK too often and they do not want their transit ...

Why yes, there is! And it's well worth visiting! The Carolinas Aviation Museum is located on the airport grounds, on the other side of the airport from the terminal. It's a ~5 minute taxi ride away. You can see most of the highlights in an hour's visit, alternately if you're interested in aviation and want to watch the video pieces as well, you can easily ...

Having connected from the US to Canada via Toronto many times, I would be nervous about that connection if I were you. The walks will be long. Even without changing terminals, you can easily walk a full kilometer in Terminal 1 if your planes are at the ends of the concourses. The amount of time you'll need to wait in line for Customs is highly variable. ...

The definitive answer is waiting for you at http://www.torontopearson.com/Connecting.aspx Assuming you meant Air Canada (a United partner) Yes, you will need your baggage while you clear Canadian customs, and then you will recheck it.

No you do not need a Visa. Your nationality does not matter also. People from all nationalities can transit if they do not intend to leave the airport for activities outside the transit areas in the airport According to the Japan Embassy in India, you can obtain a Transit Visa if you intend to leave the transit area for certain activities.

If you would normally need a visa to enter the United States (which Venezuelan citizens do), then you also need a visa to transit through a US airport. This is true whether or not you exit the airport during your layover - if the plane you are on touches down in the US, you will need a visa.

All transit visa applications are now online, unless the applicant has the good fortune to be a resident of North Korea. https://www.gov.uk/transit-visa/visitor-in-transit-visa Applications cannot be made in the UK or in the British Islands. UK Embassies no longer handle visa paperwork themselves, it's all outsourced. If this guy is really such a ...

As of July 2015 there is currently not a location to get a haircut at Miami airport This link lists all of the retail, food, and services at Miami airport has an information page on what to do during a layover including information on art exhibitions at the airport.

Normally if you have a transit time this short you can ask the airline personnel to assist in expediting the matters. However, CBP had created a page with a report of the immigration wait times at various airports so you can get an idea of how long it might take you to pass through the immigration. The max waiting time indicated for immigration was over 2 ...

I believe these people that had extended layovers (stopovers) in Hong Kong probably built the flight using 2 one-way flights. I have often used this technique when traveling. Traditionally, it is done by going to your favorite flight search engine then searching for one-way flights to the stopover city and then from stopover city to final destination. ...
