Hello everyone. I recently went to Italy, and the transit time was 50 minutes both going and returning. Kansai International Airport -> Hong Kong -> Zurich -> Fiumicino, and return is Fiumicino -> Holland -> Hong Kong -> Kansai International Airport.
In conclusion, 50 minutes of transit is definitely not enough. Running around the airport is not enough. One hour of transit time is definitely not enough. At least 2 hours, if you have the time, you need to prepare 3 hours for transit.
First of all, international flights are delayed. A plane that arrives at 10:00 is unlikely to arrive before 10:00. I’ll only arrive at 10 o’clock at the latest, so arriving early doesn’t mean you’ll be fine even if the transit time is short.
What is the “arrival time” and “departure time” of an airplane?
Also, when is the “arrival time” of the plane? What happens at 10 o’clock if the plane arrives at 10? In other words, it is not the time when you can get off the plane, but the time when the plane arrives at the parking spot at the destination airport. Therefore, it still takes some time for the plane to move a little further after it reaches the parking spot and for the plane doors to open, and for passengers to disembark.
Also, when is the “departure time” of an airplane? Departure time is the same as arrival time, it is the time when the plane leaves the parking area. So if your flight leaves at 11:00, you won’t be able to arrive at the boarding gate at 11:00. The boarding gates will definitely close earlier than 11:00.
So, for example, if you have a transit flight that arrives in Hong Kong at 10 am and leaves Hong Kong at 11 am, it’s almost impossible to get off the plane at 10 am, and it’s also impossible to get on the plane at 11 am.
What to do if you miss your flight? The procedures are quite different but don’t rush.
I first ran to the gate at Zurich airport, but it was closed and I was directed to the transfer desk. The transfer desk was already full of people. All the unfortunate people who missed their layover because their flight was only 15 minutes late. In Zurich, he gave me a 20 Swiss franc meal voucher and booked me a flight four hours later. No fees are charged at this time.
Also, I missed the transit on the way back.” Since this was a connection on the same Cathay Pacific Airways, I received an SMS during the flight from the Netherlands to Hong Kong and was automatically transferred to the flight 3 hours later. had. When I arrived in Hong Kong, I heard a voice calling “Osaka! Osaka!”, I was issued a boarding pass on the spot.
