Default Re: The International Air Travel, Airports Discussion Thread

Need some help. My wife is travelling on Turkish Airlines from here and landing in BOM with a layover in Istanbul. She is landing at just past 6 in the morning. She has to take a domestic flight to HYD. She will have to collect her baggage in BOM. But is there a change of terminal too? How easy is the transport? Are there adequate transport facilities?

The last time we flew to Udaipur some 3 years ago with a layover in BOM, we had to change terminals. It was a hassle with bad transport options etc.

Which airline is she taking for the domestic leg? Most carriers have now moved to T2 for domestic operations as well.

There is a shuttle service between T1 and T2.

I've done this a couple of times. I have also flown Turkish into BOM and changed to BLR, this was on a single PNR with Air India for the domestic. What you need to do is

1: Clear immigration
2: Collect your baggage
3: Clear customs - If you are picking up your duty free - ensure it remains intact within sealed bag+ receipt. Ideally, if the bags are secure/durable, put your duty free into the checked-in bag
4: Walk out and the Air India check is just outside to check the bags in again( you should already have the boarding cards)

If your domestic tickets are separate. Follow the above, I cannot speak for the budget airlines but Jet had a facility to allow you to check in soon after customs. Then you had to take the shuttle to the appropriate terminal.

Why did you have to collect and re-submit the bags? If it's a single PNR, isn't it the airline's job to give you through-checked-in baggage?

Everything and everyone needs to pass through customs and immigration at the first point of entry. The bag is checked through, its a case of retrieve and then hand back

Ok thanks for that - looks like she will have to move to a different terminal then - like libran mentions below. I hope the transit between terminals goes without a hitch. I cannot imagine the hassle with bad transport just when you are close to home.
