Original Poster posting the experience this time. The airline paid for the transfer. You have to ask for it. I arrived at the SHA airport terminal 1. Took the free bus shuttle to T2, took 15 mins. (Shuttle to PVG only runs from T2) Went to the China Eastern Airlines Check In Desk. Asked for a bus pass to PVG airport. They gave me one after checking my ...

Once your first flight lands, and you disembark and enter the airport, there will either be a sign, or an airport employee signalling which direction transit/onward/connecting passengers should go. Follow that and you should enter a part of a terminal where there are gates and one or more TV screens that show which flights correspond to which gates. Look at ...

The e-passport requirement applies only to travelers who seek entry under the Visa Waiver Program. Travelers who apply for (and are granted) a visa in advance do not need to have electronic passports. So you should be fine.

Since the OP has already booked tickets, I don't think any of the information I'm adding here is going to help much, but just to set the record straight. According to expertflyer, AA and EI do have ticketing and baggage interlining agreements. I can bring up a fare on matrix for ORD-AA-LHR-EI-SNN on a single AA fare which would have allowed through check of ...

The fact that you have purchased two separate tickets (as in two unrelated transactions and neither airline knows about the other flight) will make things substantially more difficult. If you bought the flights separately, you officially can't use the Heathrow Connections service and will have to exit the plane and walk to arrivals, go through UK ...

She will need to clear customs, with her bags, in Toronto. Then she will need to drop her luggage off so that it goes to Winnipeg. There are a lot of signs and a lot of uniformed staff to help you through this process. The YYZ airport has a guide to help you through this. If, as I expect, LOT have tagged the bag as Winnipeg via Toronto, she literally just ...

Helsinki is a comparatively small airport. A walk from what they call ‘terminal 1’ to ‘terminal 2’ is quicker than walking from the furthest A gate in Frankfurt to the furthest B gate, although they are both in Frankfurt’s terminal 1. And apart from it being rather small, there are other reasons why that connection is well doable: Helsinki does not ...

Can you do this, yes, but the airline will reprice your ticket based on the new routing and will charge you any difference if the new airfare is higher plus a change fee. If you try to avoid re-ticketing by not informing the airline, traveling with only carry-on bags and then leave the flight in Beijing, you may have issues with Chinese Immigration, as ...

Munich is one of the better airports in the world to transit through. You will NOT need to go through immigration/customs in Munich, and you will not be required to exit the transit area. Chinese citizens do not require a visa, as long as you have an onward ticket departing within 24 hours.

Your F1 (Student Visa) is only valid if you also have a valid I-20 form signed by the university or college that you are currently enrolled in (or if you have finished your program, are currently working on the practical training (OPT) option of the F1). If you are in one of these situations, your school should have signed your I-20 before you left the ...

Unless you have some very specific document like a limited territorial validity Schengen visa, a récépissé for an asylum application or a temporary visa delivered to let you leave the country after receiving an obligation de quitter le territoire français, chances are you have the right to transit in another Schengen country with your French visa (it's the ...

One general option - not mentioned in the comments - is to look at historical delay information. How often is the plane late, and how late is it? This is available on a number of websites; I'm a fan of Flightradar24, which shows accurate runway to runway times, but Flightaware is another good option - especially in areas where airlines actually update their ...

PEK-J268-GYD-J263 TXL has a layover of 1 hour 45 minutes in GYD. This is above minimum connection time and should be fine. However, Azerbaijan airlines (J2) only has one flight per day from GYD to TXL so if you do miss it, they would most likely rebook on you on the next day and you would have to stay overnight. It is possible that they could also rebook you ...

You do not need a transit visa. You can walk from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3. Terminal 1 is the original airport terminal, which is for all international airlines. Terminal 2 is for low-cost airlines and other operators. Terminal 3 is dedicated for Emirates and Qantas, and there is a separate building (part of Terminal 3) which is dedicated for the A380. ...

Providing this is on a single ticket, you will check in your luggage in Sacramento and pick it up in Prague. When you check your luggage in, you will see the final destination printed on the luggage tag, which will be PRG. On the return, assuming you're following the same route, you will need to pick up your luggage in LA and carry to the transfer belt ...

Copenhagen is in Denmark, and Helsinki in Finland. For border purposes, Denmark and Finland are actually in the same "Country", called the Schengen Area (or Schengen for short). Therefore Copenhagen-Helsinki flights are practically domestic, so you only clear Immigration in Helsinki - that's when you exit Schengen.

When passing through passport control in Finland, simply Show the refusal letter. Since it contains the date by which the Swedish Migration board has ordered you to Exit Schengen, you would not be treated as an overstayer even if your visa is expired

Filipino citzens need to get an airport transit visa in advance to transit in Paris. There are exemptions for people with valid visas from a few other countries (like the US or Canada) and for seamen (but possibly only when joining a ship in a French harbour) that might apply in some cases but generally speaking a visa is required.
