If yes, then what is the access code?
Will I have to collect luggage and check in again?
Actually, I'm hoping I have to get the luggage since the layover is much too long and I'm thinking of skipping the second flight and just taking the train.
But if you do not want to take the connecting flight, you'd better consult the airlines clearly. if you give up your second flight, you may be denied entry.
