Transit In STN

Wed Apr 25, 2007 5:04 pm

Hi guys,
I found a very cheap fare to ADB / Turkey. My routing would be as follows:

HHN - STN - ADB (Ryanair and Sunexpress).

I'm going to fly with my cousin who only has got a Turkish passport with a Schengen visa. However would it be possible to stay just in transit in STN? I mean, we don't have to enter UK if we fly onward to another destination. And will FR in HHN allow this?

And could someone tell me if a terminal change or s.th. like this is necessary? Which terminal FR arrives and from which terminal XQ departs?

Thanks!

FR doesn't have an interlining agreement with anyone - they don't even connect FR->FR.

You'd need to collect your bags, exit, re-checkin.

Only one terminal, but it's not small.

Yes I know that they don't have an agreement. This doesn't matter because we will only fly with carry on luggage (however I have a German passport in case of any irregularities  Wink ).
The question is, if my cousin could stay in transit without having a UK visa?

Cheers

I've just had a look at the UKVisa site ad by the loos of it your friend may qualify for a visitor in trainsit visa which allows you to remain in the country for 48 hours. This is a simpler kind of visa but would still require the issuing of a visa.

Hope this helps
