I was going to book tickets from Bucharest to Malta, but there is a stop in Istanbul, Turkey. Can I take this flight with just a Romanian ID card?
The Turkish airlines transit information page suggest I can. http://www.turkishairlines.com/en-int/travel-information/baggage/transit-transfer-passenger-procedures
International transfer passengers flight routes issued on single ticket continuing to a foreign destination with Turkish Airlines*
- Passengers disembark with only their cabin baggage and proceed directly to the boarding gates without any flight or passport procedures.
The layover time is around 4 hours.
I'd like to know if any of you tried this and if you encountered any troubles?
