I'm flying to Izmir, Turkey, in a few weeks, but I don't know anything about how flying works.

I have booked a ticket with Pegasus airlines, and fly:

  1. From Schiphol (NL) to Istanbul (TK)
  2. I have a 1 hour wait in Istanbul
  3. Fly from Istanbul to Izmir

So now I wonder if I need to manually retrieve my luggage from the Schiphol-Istanbul plane and bring it somewhere to be put on the Istanbul-Izmir plane?

Because I only have 1 hour in between, I wonder if I will have enough time to handle transferring the luggage?

  • @calchas thanks for your answer. Won't 1 hour be a bit short in that case? Commented Aug 7, 2015 at 8:41
  • the layover is long enough for you to catch your next plane, as always, if you feel time will be short, tell the flight attendant about your next flight; they might rush you out of the plane and tell the other plane to wait for you (if timing is really short)

Your luggage will be checked in all the way. You don't need to collect it as you will be in transit, and your luggage will be in a secured area.

You will (of course) have to carry your carry-on luggage with you to the next plane.
