The political salience of immigration, technological changes, and concerns over terrorism have all contributed to a much tighter border enforcement but it's important to note that borders in (Western) Europe have long been much more open than in some other parts of the world. I remember the (pre-Schengen) time where many border posts between France and ...

“Ok to Board” is a process to authenticate UAE visas for some customers from the South Asia subcontinent. It’s not relevant to your situation. I doubt you’ll get confirmation from Emirates prior to check-in given that airline T&C normally state that travel documents are the passenger’s responsibility. You mention in a comment that Timatic (the system ...

A medical certificate is unlikely to be of that much help. It's possible that presenting one would allow you to keep a trolley in the queue, but there's really not any kind of standardized procedure for that, so it simply comes down to whatever employee happens to be overseeing the checkpoint, and that person is likely to be busy, not really interested in ...

Most people working in airports are honest, will not steal. So there is a very good chance that the money will come through, even when the case is checked by X-ray or by hand. Even more likely as the most likely location for checking by X-ray is in Germany. And German border control and security forces are not known for stealing. I would not put money in ...

I'm going to nominate Anadyr airport in Russia's far North-East. Now, it's only 10 km from the town, but it is on a different side of the bay and there are no roads between airport and the town it serves. Not a problem in winter, since the bay will freeze and allow driving over. But between seasons, I think it's not uncommon when you can't reach airport ...

It's a workaround but in Europe we have the airport of Basel Mulhouse which is "between" two countries (Switzerland and France), if I'm right Geneva airport also shares the same asset.

I calculated all the distances from all the airports available from OpenFlights. The raw (CSV) data is available from them (this is the airports.dat.txt file in the code below). The code to do that is really quick and really dirty (it needs to be ran by a 64 bits interpreter otherwise you may get a cryptic MemoryError exception) . It goes through all ...

Cardiff (CWL) and Bristol (BRS) are ~40km apart (in a straight line). Although both are in the UK, they are technically in different countries (Wales and England respectively). The actual driving distance between them is significantly higher however (almost 100km) due to having to cross the River Severn.

Saratov (Саратов) Airport is 1.5 km from Saratov downtown. Unfortunately, there are immediate plans to tear it down in favor of new Gagarin airport. Same, to lesser extent, with Irkutsk (stranded passengers from Europe-Asia flights that went wrong) and Krasnodar airport.

Stewart International Airport has been renamed on Feb 21, 2018 to New York Stewart International Airport. It is 72.9 miles from the center of New York City according to Google Maps. It comes to mind because it's in my hometown.

Not going to win, but the Lhasa Gonggar Airport (LXA) is 97km away from downtown Lhasa. Nevertheless, it is going to win in one aspect: it is the only civilian airport serving Lhasa, making Lhasa the most distant city to any airport among all the cities that have been mentioned. A new airport is under construction in Lhasa to allow easier access to the city ...

I took a bit of a programatic approach. In Ruby: require 'airports' require 'geocoder' AIRPORTS = Airports.all.select { |airport| airport.name.downcase.include?('international') } arr = [] AIRPORTS.each do |airport_1| AIRPORTS.each do |airport_2| next if airport_1.country == airport_2.country arr << [ Geocoder::Calculations....

Princess Juliana (SXM) and Grand Case-Espérance (SFG) airports in, respectively, the Dutch and French parts of the Caribbean island Saint Martin, are 9 kilometers from each other, according to gcmap.com. Most of the few scheduled flights at Grand Case are to other overseas parts of France, and so probably won't count as international, but Wikipedia says ...

I'd take it to the Turkish Airline desk and check it in there. Since all your flights have the same PNR the airlines should route it appropriately. If in doubt you can always ask for confirmation at the Turkish Airlines desk.

I was stopped by some guy dressed in a suit in T3 earlier this month. Asked me to delete the photos as he was part of the TSA or something similar. It was in the Virgin check in desk area and surrounds. Virgin where doing a small food giveaway. Popcorn maybe. I didn't delete the photos and I've checked on google pics and there are loads of that area.
