Where can I meet him? he doesn't fly, so he want be allowed to come inside restricted area. If I have understood the map: I have to go outside at T3-C 2F and check in again at the T3-C 4F. I'm I right? Or there is any other easier solution? I will have to run, I don't have enough time to do all :(
So we will follow the flow chart (finded here) about international arrive and than we will enter again. We be difficult, but we arrive on Thursday at 5 am, maybe there isn't to much people in the airport at this time.
I am arriving at 5.15 AM with Swiss LX 196 at Terminal 3 and have a Flight at 8.10 AM with China Southern from Terminal 2 to Seoul. I only travel with hand baggage. Do I have to make a 144 hours Visa if I have to get the boarding card? Or can i get the boarding card at a transfer desk? Do i have enough time? Thank you for your help!!
If BA Bag Drop Off is not open at 06:00, can I still drop my bags off at another One World Bag Drop Off desk that is open at that time?
